Looking Back at Fall Into Fun
We had a great night of fun and fellowship on Halloween. Thank you to all who volunteered and worked hard to make this night a safe place for families to come with their kids! We are already excited about next year’s Fall Into Fun event.
Every Wednesday, from 10-11am, our Family Life Center is opened up to the community for parents and caregivers to bring their preschoolers to play. The adults can gather to chat while the kids safely play in a big area. At the end, we bring out a big parachute for the kids to play under and then sit on top of to sing songs. If you have a preschooler and are looking for a fun activity for these cold months, please come and join us.
We need nursery volunteers for the month our college students are on break. Please see Rita Dean if you are able to serve. The kids are precious and fun to be with. We also still need volunteers for our 5pm Christmas Eve service. It is such a great time to be with the kids and is a way to minister to families—providing a safe place for the little ones, so the adults and older children can worship together. Rita and I look forward to hearing from you!
Special Christmas Events for Kid’s at Pearce
On Sunday, December 7, at 6pm in the Sanctuary, our Pearce kids will be presenting G.T. and the Halo Express: Ticket to Christmas, a Christmas musical about the greatest gift ever given: Jesus. There will be live music, an adult choir will accompany on one of the songs, and a cookie reception will follow in the FLC. It will be a great way to celebrate Jesus with the kids of our church.
Wednesday, December 17, at 6:30pm will be our Family Story Hour. Pastor Wally will read two Christmas stories to the whole family—you won’t want to miss this! Kids may come in their pj’s and bring a blanket and favorite stuffed animal. We’ll gather in Parmerter for the story and then in the FLC for a Christmas reception. A fun feature of the night will be gifts for the kids from our Pearce Toymakers. The Toymakers have been creating wooden items for all of our kids, from new babies all the way up to kids in 6th grade.
As always, it is a blessing to be your children’s pastor. May this Christmas season be a special time for you and your family as, together, we celebrate the birth of our King!
