We are very excited to announce that we will be holding First Communion classes beginning Tuesday, October 10th from 3:15-4:15. Any child in the 1st-5th grades that has been baptized is invited to attend this 5 class series! The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear the Word of God (Lesson 2), We Respond to the Word (Lesson 3), We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 4), We Celebrate  and We are Sent Out (Lesson 5). Because children learn with all their senses, activities and instruction will be included that engage them throughout each lesson.

The classes will be led by Happy Wilson in the Youth & Family Room.

The First Communion class schedule is as follows:
October 10: We Gather
October 17: We Hear the Word of God
October 24: We Respond to the Word

Kids for Christ – “Sundaes on Sunday” Fun Day

By | Children's Ministries, Kids for Christ | No Comments

Ever cut up a banana and then tried to put it back together again in its peel?  Our KFC kids did justkfc-sundaes-2016 that at our “Sundaes on Sunday” formation this past Sunday and found that it was not very easy!  Lesson learned: When you cut someone down with your words and actions (like they did with the banana), it is very difficult to put them back together again.  The kids suggested we needed to use self-control when choosing our words and actions…so we played a game to practice self-control!  Each child received an Oreo cookie that they had to place on their forehead.  They had to move the Oreo from their forehead to their mouth, only using their facial muscles…no hands allowed!  It was quite a sight to see this in action!  Afterwards the kids made their own ice cream sundaes before heading home!  It was a great KFC “Sundaes on Sunday” Fun Day!
