Fall is well under way. We have had a great start to Sunday School, Kids’ Worship, Wednesday morning Kids’ Gym, and Wednesday night Kids’ Zone. I would like to highlight several things.
- Pearce has many faithful volunteers who are giving of their time each week to prepare lessons and teach our children.
- I have met a number of new people and families at Pearce since kick-off Sunday.
- Many parents attended our parenting seminar on the first day of Sunday School. Thank you Pastor Mike and Lydia, for your work on this! And many parents are now attending the Sticky Faith Adult Bible Fellowship. Thanks to Pastor Mike, for his work on this! He and Dr. Cheryl Repass are the lead teachers—what a blessing and wealth of information. It is not too late to join the class!
- Kids’ Worship is going well, after having changed it up a bit this fall. Children in Kindergarten-2nd grade are meeting downstairs in the primary wing, starting at the beginning of the 10:30 am worship service. The sign in/out process is much safer this year, and the room is better suited to their age. Laura Ciminelli, who works for P4K and also occasionally plays the bass in Pearce worship services, is the lead teacher in this ministry. Laura and her team are doing a great job!
There are a lot of “ordinary things” happening in the kids’ ministry at Pearce, and they have been happening since Pearce Church started over 150 years ago. But to God, these ministries are “extraordinary,” because of the way they encourage our children to live for Jesus. They can come here and connect with other kids who love Jesus, and learn about a God who created them and loves them deeply.
If you have any questions or ideas about kids’ ministry here at Pearce, please give me a call. I would welcome the opportunity to get together and chat.
Coming soon…Fall Into Fun, October 31, from 6:30-8:00 pm! Check the NEUs (News, Events & Updates) for more information, or check out the poster at the lobby reception desk!
