What’s Happening in Children’s Ministries (Mar 1, 2020)
Kids’ Club provides a fun, safe, and nurturing childcare environment for infants through 3 year olds during worship and Sunday school. Parents may attend church, teach Sunday School, sing in the choir, or attend committee meetings while their children are cared for.
There will be Children’s Chapel Sunday for children ages 3 years-2nd grade at the 9:00am service. Children begin the service with their families, then follow the cross out of the church and proceed to the Youth Wing. They return to church after the Peace and share the Eucharist with their families. This week’s lesson is Jesus Tempted in the Wilderness.
Sunday School begins at 10:10am in the Education Building. This week is The Season of Lent. We are still in need of occasional substitute teachers. If you are interested in volunteering, please email us at email@example.com.
Shrove Tuesday pancake supper will be held today, Tuesday, February 25, from 5:00 to 7:00pm in the Parish Hall. Costs are $7 per adult, $3 for each school-age (K-12) child, free for pre-school-age children, and there is a cap of $20 per family. This event is sponsored by the Men’s Group and is a great way to start off your Lenten journey.
The Ash Wednesday Service designed for Families will be held on February 26, at 6pm. Kids’s Club will be available for infants through 3 year olds.
If you have pre-registered your child for the Communion Classes, detailed information was sent out early this week. Classes begin Sunday, March 1, at 10:10-11:00am, and children will gather in the Youth Wing.
The Children’s Ministry Committee will be hosting a special coffee hour on March 29th, at 10:00am, to celebrate the 2020 Communion Class graduates, our special children who have completed their Eucharistic education. Please help support the committee by signing up to volunteer your time and/or food donation. We appreciate your continued support of St. Paul’s! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050A4FAEAB2DA4F85-stpauls1
Easter is on its way and that means it is almost time for our Annual Easter Egg Hunt! We will be using the same process as last year, where we hide empty eggs for the children to hunt. Children can collect one egg, or 100! All eggs will be turned in to the collection area in the Courtyard, where the children will receive a bag of treats in exchange for their eggs. Please feel free to donate nut-free candy and other small Easter trinkets (stickers, etc.) to put in the treat bags. Donations will be accepted through April 5th. Please bring to the Church office or contact Natalie Sroka at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your help!
