This month, I want to highlight our Kids’ Bag ministry. You may have noticed the bright bags that are located in the Narthex and on the front pew of the sanctuary during our 10:30am worship service. These are our Kids’ Bags. These bags usually contain crayons, a clipboard with work sheets for the kids, and some type of allergy-free candy. The worksheets are purchased through the website “KidsWord.” Each worksheet is based on a story from the Bible and follows the traditional church calendar. Some weekends, we add a special craft to the bag. The kids usually pick up their kid’s bags after the Children’s Moments portion of the service. These Kids’ Bags, along with Children’s Moments, are an example of how important our kids are at Pearce. They give kids an opportunity to engage and be a part of the worship service. Thank you to those who have volunteered to help clean and refill these bags each week!
We have only two weeks left of Sunday school! June 14 will be our last day until we start our new Sunday school year on September 20. It has been a great year of learning God’s Word! I am thankful for our many teachers and helpers and for Mary Price. In addition to taking Sunday school attendance, Mary has faithfully taught our little ones songs throughout the school year. Please take time to thank the people who have impacted our kids this year. And, if you would like to be on the Sunday school teaching team for the 2015/2016 school year, please let me know. Sunday school is a ministry that grounds our kids in the Word of God. Thank you for praying for this ministry and seeing the importance of getting your kids here on Sunday mornings!
Sunday school may be almost done, but the learning isn’t over! Be watching for a disciple book you can work through with your kids over the summer, as a part of our summer kids reading program. More information on this exciting opportunity will be coming soon!
