Summer Worship Series:  Family Stories – Bring Family Photos for Altar
Ancient Families, Modern Stories, Sundays June 18 – July 30
We will travel with Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecka, Jacob, Leah and Rachel, hearing their stories and reflecting on our own stories in light of God’s great promise that they ~ and we ~ shall be a blessing to the world. During this series we will be decorating the church with family photos.  Please bring in your family photos – modern or of past generations – so that together we may see the varieties of families that make up the family of God!

 

Children’s Table in Sanctuary

For those children who are too old for the nursery, but too young to be expected to sit quietly for an hour, we have set up an activity table in the sanctuary.  Children are not required to be at the table.  They are welcome to play at the table for part or all of worship, as they would like.  There are coloring sheets, books, and games available.  If you have an older child who would like to sit at the table and engage with the younger ones as a helper, that would be great too! We hope this creates a space in which parents can worship and children feel welcome and included.  Children are a blessing to our church and our worship experience, with all the joy and enthusiasm they bring!

 

Nursery Care Volunteer Needed First Sunday of the Month

Our dedicated Nursery Care Provider, Sharon, takes the first Sunday of the month off so she can attend worship.  If you would like to volunteer to provide nursery coverage on the first Sundays of the month please speak with Pastor Kristabeth.  Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.  Those under 18 may serve as nursery assistants under an adult’s supervision.

 

Weekday Bible Study

For the past several years we have held a weekday Bible Study during the school year (September –June).  At various times we’ve met weekly or every other week, in the morning or in the afternoon.  In order to determine the best time for the study I’ve created a poll.  Participation in the poll does not obligate you to attend!  Please give your feedback as to what days and times would work best for you if you were to attend a weekday study: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C5P9SWR

(This study is for those available during the day.  We will continue to have Sunday and evening studies for those who are occupied during the weekdays.) Thanks!
