Beginning this Fall…

September is here and it is time to think about children’s activities beginning soon!
 
Welcome Home Sunday will be September 10 in the Fellowship Hall between services and after the 11AM service. We are celebrating with a carnival theme with special treats and lots of fun to enjoy. While at Welcome Home you will be able to sign your children up for Promiseland classes (Sunday School). Look for the children’s and youth table, there will be a candy guessing jar and gifts for all children again this year!  Parents will also find classes and many opportunities available for you. I am anxious to hear all about your summer activities and how school has started for you. See you at Welcome Home Sunday!
 
The nursery is available for children from birth thru four years from 8:30 – 9:30 AM and 10:45 – Noon.  The nursery is located in Susanna’s Place, Room 106. There you will find Phyllis Michelson and volunteers who love spending time with your children.
