November 13th, 2016 – CHILDREN & YOUTH SUNDAY

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

This Sunday, November 13th, at 11:00, our children and teens are “taking over” our Worship Service. They have written all the prayers, chosen the hymns, will deliver the sermons, and will have major roles throughout the Service.

We literally have a role for every person between the ages of 3 and 17 — so we need lots of teens and children. Please invite family and friends — all visiting children will have roles in the Service too. We also hope many adults in our congregation will come to support our young people.

PARENTS: Please make sure your child or teen is at church at 10:00 for our rehearsal.

Also, this Sunday is Giving Basket Sunday, when we donate food for a local food pantry. Please bring as much non-perishable food to church as you can.

We can’t wait to see you, your family and your friends this Sunday!
