What a wonderful first month and a half we have had! Sunday morning curriculum is in place and running strong and smooth. I enjoy having the children Sunday mornings to learn and talk with them and hearing them recite to me what we’ve been learning, it is just icing on the cake.
Upward registration is here! Don’t forget to sign up your child by either coming into the church office or you can even register them online at http://registration.upward.org/UPW66797. The cost is $60.00 per child and the deadline is August 27th. There is one more evaluation and registration date on Saturday, August 18th from 11:00am-1:00pm at FBC in the Activities Building.
We are also diving head first into AWANA! Awana will be held on Wednesday nights starting at 5:45pm. Your child will receive a bag, a book, a vest, badges and more! We will hold a theme night each night and your child will be responsible for all their material. When they come back each Wednesday night they will receive points for having all their stuff with them and at the end of the year we will hold an awards ceremony. There is no cost for Awana but there is a replacement cost if a book or vest is lost.
We will also be starting a Giving Jar, each night we will take up an offering and the proceeds will go towards an organization in need. The organization will be up to the children!
Our next event will be held on Saturday, September, 29th starting at 5:00pm and ending at 7:00pm located at my home. We will have a small bonfire and will be roasting marshmallows along with drinking some hot coco. If you or your child would like to attend this event please RSVP before Friday, September 28th.
I encourage you to continue bringing your child so they can experience the love of God! Please pray for them as we take this journey together. Please know that we stand ready to help your family at ANY time. Let us know of any special ministry need, or other special needs your child may have. We consider it an honor and privilege to be allowed to work with your child.
