On Monday, November 30th at 7:00 PM Pastor Matt will be live-streaming a “Make Your Own Christmas Cards” drawing lesson. The hope is that kids and adults will make cards and then mail them to friends and family that they can’t see this year due to quarantines, and also to people in the Pioneer Home, in the hospital, or who just feel isolated. The drawings will be simple enough to pick up quickly, allowing each person to add their own personal touches.
Sundays beginning September 27 at 9:30 am
Join other families (children, youth, parents) online for 20 minutes of singing, fellowship, Beatitudes reflection, and faith practice experience.We will be using The Beatitudes: An Illustrated Curriculum for our reflection time.
Even with virtual classes in session this fall, school supplies will still be needed for children in our community.
You can help by bringing the following supplies to the church by August 24:
24 ct crayons
individual size hand sanitizer bottles
You can drop donations off at the church during the week.
If the church is locked, you can leave them in the white work trailer behind the church until 5 pm. There is a box labeled “school supplies” in the trailer.
All children, youth and parents are welcome to come to our Back to School Drive Up in the church parking lot on Monday, August 17, from 6-7pm. We will have a goodie bag for each of you to take home which contains school supplies, snacks and other surprises for you!
For the safety of all of us it will be a drive up activity but we would love to see as many of you as possible!
Are you looking for a way to engage your children this summer in faith formation but struggling because of social distancing? We have you covered with Staycation Bible School 2020!
Staycation Bible School 2020 — “Feet that Follow” will help you as a family connect and share God’s love. “Feet that Follow” gives you an opportunity to go on a journey with Jesus and explore the many places he traveled and discover the ways we can travel and share God’s love – even when we are staying close to home. Each participant will be given a “travel bag” with many of the supplies you will need for your journey.
