We have survived 3 weeks of the new promotion year! I am happy to announce that we have had some near record breaking attendance in our Children's Ministry the past few weekends! This is such an encouragement and we hope we keep the numbers high! We have a few events in the coming weeks that I want to let you know about.
September 16th we start our Extra Innings program from 7- 8 PM. We are hoping to have more kids than last year sign up! If you are interested, but do not know how to register please read the post before this one to get all of the details. Please do not hesitate to contact our Grade School Team, or myself, if you have any questions regarding this program.
We are having a Preteen Parent Meeting in two weeks! On either September 19th or September 20th we will have a meeting to discuss what we are doing in our Preteen Ministry along with talking about making our weekend Grapple curriculum available online during the week. Right now we are only using the curriculum during the weekend and would love to show you and your child how to log on and get plugged into Grapple during the week. We hope that this keeps parents more informed about what is going on during the weekend. If your child is wanting to do the online program, please come to room C210 at either 7:15 PM on the 19th or at either 9:30 or 11:00 on the 20th. This meeting will only last 15- 20 minutes! Here is what the postcard going home with your kids, this weekend, will look like (Click on the image to make is larger)! Also, be looking for an e-mail with more details.
In our lessons we have been discussing the dynamics of families and why we act the way we do. This coming weekend we will be touching on how we can put other above ourselves. We will be discussing how Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us and how in turn we can be less selfish and more focused on others and our God. A lot of 4th and 5th graders forget that the world doesn't revolve around them :) We hope to touch base with those tendencies in this lesson.
