Director of CE & Youth Programs – March 2021



CHILDREN'S WORSHIP

Preschool through Second Grade

Children’s worship stories continue to be pre-recorded and posted on the church website each week, and families may retrieve supply bags with materials to complete the crafts described each week. Please contact Amy if you did not receive yours or need additional materials. We will continue to host monthly live Zoom meetups for preschool through 2nd grade. Our next meetup is scheduled for Sunday, March 7. Information to join will be shared via email a few days beforehand.


Special Lenten Family Egg Hunt Kits Available

The CE committee has assembled a special egg hunt activity for families to do together during Lent. Each egg contains a unique item that corresponds with an activity focused on prayer. Treasure hunts are so much fun for kids!

Hide each egg and send your kids on a hunt for it. When they find the egg, gather in your prayer area to do the activity and pray together. Kits have been provided for families with children through middle-school ages. If you would like additional kits for friends or families, please contact Amy.


An Update on Junior Day Camp and Day Camp

The Christian Education committee has decided that we will not plan for our traditional week-long day camp and junior day camp this summer. Instead, we plan to host shorter, all-outdoor meetups at various locations throughout the summer. We believe this will be easier to plan and will allow us to adapt to the latest information to maintain safety for all participants and volunteers. If you would like to be involved in planning, please contact Amy or the church office.


Tween and Pre-teen Programming -- (Third through Eighth Grade)

Our combined class for 3rd--8th grade kids will continue live Zoom meetups on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Lessons will be based off of the Sparkhouse curriculum, Whirl All Kids. Check your email for a Zoom meeting link.

The youth group will be meeting outdoors next to the church playground on Sunday evenings from 7:00-8:00 p.m. each week during Lent. Our first meeting will be Sunday, February 21. We will have the fire pit going to stay warm. Be sure to wear your masks and bring your own chair if you want to sit around the fire. Please check your GroupMe texts and emails to stay up-to-date on our plans.
