Our annual Christmas Carol Showcase is coming up on December 17, 2023! This event is for all children walking through 5th grade that would like to participate in singing three Christmas carols on stage during Sunday service. Our last practice will be this Sunday, December 10 for all children in the children's ministry. All children will be dismissed out of church service after communion to children's church.
Please note for the performance on December 17:
- All children should wear the "Jesus Loves Me" t-shirt or any holiday attire
- All children participating will be dismissed to the FLC after the welcome announcements
-After the performance, children will be released back to the parents for the remainder of service.
*Parents if you would like your walkers (under the age of 3) to participate, I will need you to come to practice with your child and plan to be near the stage on December 17.

Worship Activity Bags are NOW Available in BOTH Foyers
What is a Worship activity bag?
Our church bags will be changing mid-September to "Worship activity bags". These bags and activities are reusable week to week which decreases the financial burden as well as the time necessary to create each bag each week. Inside the bags you will find, a bible, a variety of quiet fidget toys, a writing utensil as well as a notebook. Please leave all the supplies inside the bag when returned at the end of service. The purpose of these bags is to help your children listen and focus in on worship. We will also have an activity page and page for sermon notes located above the "Worship Activity Bags" area that your child(ren) may use along with a bag. Please take the activity pages home with you. Snacks will no longer be included in the Worship bags, please plan ahead if you feel like your child will need a snack during worship services. Also remember that we have children's church for ages 3 to 1st grade as well as the nursery staffed for any child under the age of 3.
