People's PreschoolersElementary Sleepover – November 1

All 1st-6th-graders are invited to enjoy a sleepover at church.  Potluck dinner begins at 6:00 PM and then kids will enjoy fun games and a Haunted House created and run by our teens.

This is a great way for children to make and deepen church friendships and to help kids to feel comfortable in their church home.

More information and forms to sign up will be available soon.  Parents are needed to spend the night and help out.  For more information contact Jana Watson or Brooke Feltner-Beebe.

SPECIALTY CLASSES

As the most popular aspect of our religious education program, these special classes will continue during RE on the first Sunday of each month for all Kindergarten through 6th-graders.

They are designed to be a fun way to connect different ages of kids with different adults from our congregation.  The subjects are wide open—baking, arts and crafts, nature hikes, drama, games, sports, etc.

Do you have a hobby you’d like to share with the kids one Sunday this year?  Please take this chance to help support the RE program and offer to be a leader or a helper one week.   For more information contact Stephanie Measzros at measzros@yahoo.com or 373-2917.
