Bibles for 3rd Graders…

November 5 at the 11AM service our third graders will be receiving Bibles as a gift from the Walter and Metha Blenkarn Memorial Fund established in 1978. We have 16 third graders receiving Bibles. If you have not received a letter from Lynn with all the information about this special day please contact her at 442-5643. We want to be sure all third graders receive their Bibles. See you on November 5 for the celebration!

Children’s Advent Choir…

Calling all children who love to sing! The Children’s Advent Choir will meet November 12 – December 10. Matt Hankins and a helper will be leading this fun musical event for children in Kindergarten – 5th grade. Practice will begin immediately AFTER Children’s Time on November 12 and the 19 so the children can participate in Children’s Time.
On November 26, December 3, and December 10 practice will begin at 11AM. The children will be singing before Children’s Time allowing them to participate in Children’s Time and then go back to choir practice! Practice will take place in the Choir Room, lower level of the church, except November 19 where we will meet in the Practice Room.  Come sing with us!!
