All month in Graceland we are talking about the 12 Disciples! In addition to learning the story from the Bible and doing many creative projects, we’ve talked about how we can be the hands and feet- today’s disciples in the world. Pictures below are from Sunday’s Art room-“fisher of men”fish. We also added to a paper chain sharing kind acts we’ve done in the world!
This year the day we celebrate love, Valentine’s Day, February 14th, is also a day to show love to our neighbors near and far! Join us in the gym for our annual hands on service and mission fair at WCC. We’ll make sandwiches for the homeless, fill bags of laundry soap for those in need, make dog for the dog shelter, create snack and play bags for siblings and parents at the Ronald McDonald House and so much more. Representatives from many organizations will be here also to tell you more about their non-profit and to encourage your family to continue volunteering. No cost for this event, bring your friends! The more volunteers we have the more we can do to help 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 kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades throughout the month. 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!

Kids’ Night Out meets from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the Gym. All children ages 3 through 5th grade are invited to join their church family for games, crafts, dinner and a movie once a month at church! This is a great way to build relationships with others and to experience church in a different way. Registration is required.
