Throughout the month of March we are learning all about the last week of Jesus life which we call Holy Week. This Sunday the K/1 group will watch part of The Jesus Movie which will walk through part of Jesus ministry and Holy Week. The 2nd/3rd grade group will be playing Easter Faith games in the gym and the 4/5 group will be making story resurrection eggs in the art room. Join us this Sunday as these creative and fun lessons make the stories from holy week come to life.
Palm Sunday Parade: K-5th graders will lead a Palm Parade into the Sanctuary on Sunday March 25th at the 9 a.m. service. All kids meet in Founders Hall (right outside of the Sanctuary) on this day. We’ll hand you some palm branches and give you instructions! Help us to usher our congregation into Holy Week!
Help Us Fill the Food Shelf This Month!
Please encourage your kids to bring a nonperishable food item with them this month when they come to Sunday School as we work together to fill the food shelf. Drop boxes are in the west and east entrances. This is an easy way to help your kids understand the importance of helping others in need.
We Need Your Help!!
This month we are in desperate need of volunteers for teaching and guiding. I promise you, it is fun, and your kids LOVE when you volunteer. I am in need of teachers and guides for all grades. Click here to look at the openings and to choose dates to help. I will follow up with details for you on everything you need to know. Thanks for working with me to guide your kids on their spiritual journey!
