CHILDREN’S DIRECTOR -- Chris Bailey
Fall Festival is right around the corner! This Sunday I will be sending out the sign up sheets for Sunday School classes to begin signing up to work booths at the fall festival! We are also needing individuals to meet and greet in the parking lot, as well as a tractor and trailer that can transport families from the back parking lot to the front, as it is hard on some of the families with elderly members or several small children to make the trek. Golf carts would also be helpful for this as well. If you have any of these items that could be useful or would like to help in any of these areas, please be sure to sign up to let us know!
Candy and treat collection will be starting on Sunday, September 22, so that we have plenty of time to collect what we need. We will be asking for candy, Little Debbie’s and other individually wrapped snacks (like Goldfish), and fall or Christian trinkets (no Halloween themed stuff please) to give a way at the different booths.
We are continuing to learn the 10 Commandments in children’s church! Last Sunday we learned that we are not to kill others…. Even with our words! We talked about sprinkling others with kindness, and decorated a huge donut poster with paper sprinkles! The children had to choose sprinkles that had messages written on them and decide whether they were sweet or sour… we only want sweet sprinkles for our donuts! They had a lot of fun, and learned that “Thou shalt not kill” doesn’t just mean the body, but words, too! Next week, we will talk about not breaking our promises… Commandment 7!
That the next generation may know!
