Only three more weeks until the end of God Squad and Sunday School for this school year. I’m really going to miss the kids, so I’m very glad that we are adding some summer programming!
Just a reminder that on the last day of Sunday School (April 24) we’ll have a little end of the year celebration for the kids from around 9-10:20. There will be donuts, games, door prizes and a bounce house! We would LOVE to have lots of kiddos attend!
The last day of God Squad is April 27, and as mentioned, the kids will fulfill their end of the year charity promise. Tom’s class will head over to Fareway to shop for the food pantry with money they have saved individually and from the children’s offering. Liz and RoxAnn’s class will partner with the ELCA Good Gifts Project and “Animals Of God’s Global Barnyard To End World Hunger.” I’m sure you’re intrigued…it’s a fun project and the kids will really enjoy it. We will send home a letter and more details regarding that on Wednesday!
Sunday school was a blast last week! Our kids had the privilege of working with Sue Brakhane and Jim Nelson in the children’s garden! They planted potatoes and made pantyhose peeps! The kids will head back out to the garden on Sunday, May 22 from 9-10:20 so mark your calendars!
Our younger God Squad kids covered Thomas Believes, John 20:24-31 and made super cute necklaces! The older kids covered both The Road to Emmaus, Luke 24:13-35 and Thomas Believes, John 20:24-31 and the beginning of Apostles’ Creed.
Don’t forget to sign up for Parents’ Night Out on May 14th from 5-8 p.m. Take some time to yourself and bring the kids to church! Courtney, Nate and our youth volunteers will have dinner, snacks, games and various faith-based activities to keep the kids busy! The cost is $5 per child with proceeds to benefit our children/youth programming. If your child attends Nate’s youth group on Wednesdays, they have volunteered to help with this event–therefore there is no charge for them (please let me know if your youth student cannot make it). Nursery volunteers are needed for this event, please let me know if you’re interested in helping. Click here to register!
