Milestone Celebration on September 15

Sunday, September 15, during the 8:30 A.M. worship service, Pastor Stuart will present 3rd graders in the Philippians and Colossians Sunday School groups with their gift Bible. These Bibles contain many helpful tools that make the scriptures come alive, and will become your child’s “textbook” for the next three years on their Journey to Confirmation.

We need your 3rd grader in Grundy Hall at 7:50 A.M. to prepare for the worship service. Parents can head to the Sanctuary to find their seats with the rest of their family. After the Sunday School groups prepare for worship, they will move to reserved pews in the Sanctuary.

We encourage your child bring their offering to place in the offering plate while they sit with their peer group during worship.

Following worship, parents and 3rd graders are invited back to Grundy Hall for the Milestone Celebration from 9:45-10:45 A.M. We have lots of meaningful activities planned to help the children open, explore, and most of all, enjoy this tremendous gift of the Bible.

Please give thought to your favorite verse(s) of the Bible. At the celebration, parents will have a chance to “autograph” their child’s Bible next to their favorite verse. This has proved to be a very fun and meaningful introduction to God’s Word.

Retreat!

Save-the-Date!  Friday evening, September 27,  all children in 1st through 3rd grade are invited to an evening of fun, food, and fellowship here on the FPC campus from 5:00-7:00 p.m.  Includes pizza dinner.

Parents:  This a perfect opportunity for your child to create new and strengthen old church friendships.  Helping our children connect together as young disciples as they journey towards Youth group will have significant benefits for your child’s faith development.

Kick-Off for Children’s Sunday School Groups is August 20

Welcome!   We hope the summer offered lots of opportunity to relax, travel, and renew.  We’re ready to begin our communities of belonging with our children each Sunday morning.  Groups age 3 through 6th grade study the Bible together and grow as disciples as they pray, serve, play, and care for each other.   Babies and toddlers have a fun time in our loving Nursery playing and hearing a Bible story, too.

The Sunday School hour for children is 9:45-10:45 A.M.   Families will receive an e-mail with their child’s group and room assignment prior to August 20.   We ask that parents escort their children to their group on this Kick-Off day and offer a hello/thanks to the great group of leaders who will be journeying with your child for the next 10 months.

Starting at 10:00 A.M. we are hosting a breakfast for parents in Courtenay Hall.   You’ll have time to visit with friends, make new friends, and enjoy Kim’s great cooking.

Relationships matter!  

Faith is caught more than it is taught.
