Children's Ministry Schedule

September through December 2016

book cover Beginning on September 11th:
A Family Adventrue through the Lord's Prayer

When the disciples asked "Lord, teach us to pray", Jesus answered the disciples by reciting The Lord's Prayer. This fall, our children will be studying the Lord's Prayer, How to Pray, and When to Pray. With Amanda Somdal's help, they will also learn to recite the Lord's Prayer in American Sign Language. Our Facebook website will have a video of the Lord's Prayer in American Sign Language for the parents to learn and to help their children. On November 13, our children and parents will present this as an offering during the Holy Communion part of our service, which will also be 'Outreach' Family Sunday!

'Outreach' Family Sunday - November 13
Save the Date! We will have a fun-packed Family Sunday serving others and our own parishioners. We will begin with breakfast, pack Operation Christmas Child boxes, and then Sign the Lord's Prayer as part of the 10 am service. We will begin at 9:15 am in the Family Center.
(Suggested donation for breakfast is $7 for adults, $1 for children. Assistance available.)
