Hello St. Paul Parents!
Reminder: God Squad resumes TOMORROW from 5:20-6:30, drop off at 5:15. Because the Jr. High-High School youth group is now meeting at St. Paul a worship service and praise band will occupy the sanctuary from 6:30 to 7. This worship is open to all children however, so if you’re late to pick up your child or choose to pick up later than the 6:30 time the kids can either play in the nursery or will be invited to the group worship. Because there’s a band, I think the kids might be drawn to this service so they are welcome to attend while waiting for their parents. I know there’s homework and lots to do in the evenings, but I will be there until the worship ends at 7, so we wanted to make sure that parents knew the opportunity is there for them to attend following the 6:30 dismissal if you choose…even if for a few minutes while they wait. God Squad official end time is still 6:30.
Now, for the main news..We will be holding our Parent’s Night Out event on Saturday Feb. 11 from 5-8 p.m. The event is $5 per child and includes dinner, snacks, face painting, board games, crafts, activities and a movie, This is open to babies through 6th grade!
We are asking for volunteers so if you know any Junior High or High School kids (Or adults!) that want to assist with this event please send them my way.
Last year’s event was a huge success and we can’t wait to do it again. We keep the kids very busy the entire time and then we wind them down with a kid-friendly movie in the sanctuary at the very end. Kids had so much fun last year that parents were literally trying to pull them out the doors when it was time to go home.
Because last year’s event filled up and we can only take so many kids I am opening this event up to our St. Paul parents and St. Paul family friends this first week before advertising it to the public. If you want to sign your child up please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, please include your emergency contact number and any allergies your child has. The dinner will be something kid friendly…last year we had pizza and chicken nuggets as the main dish. The $5 is paid at the door. Please sign up ASAP!
Hello St. Paul Parents!
Just a reminder that God Squad does not resume tonight, we will resume our regular 5:20 to 6:30 God Squad schedule on Jan. 11. The youth group and confirmation will still meet tonight as scheduled but there is NO God Squad tonight. Sunday school will resume this Sunday, Jan. 8. See you all soon!
I can’t believe we are already to Christmas season! This fall just flew by for me!
REMINDER: Christmas program dress rehearsal is this Saturday morning (9-11 older kids. 9-10 younger kids)…I’ll have snacks ready. If you plan to donate cookies, mini muffins, donuts, cinnamon rolls or fruit for Saturday and Sunday morning please bring them to the church by Saturday morning and label them. That way, I know if I need to shop before the Sunday morning festivities. On Sunday morning the kids will perform at both services. It’s a long morning, so I’ll have the food, fun and crafts to keep them happy in between services. Beth and Alan have done an amazing job with these kids as usual, they deserve mega KUDOS for their patience, love, energy and time!!! This Christmas program wouldn’t happen without them and we are so grateful!
Our God Squad Christmas party (all St. Paul kids are invited and encouraged to come) is this Wednesday from 5:15-6:30. We will have dinner first and then watch a movie in the sanctuary. It’s a PAJAMA PARTY! Each kid will go home with a fun ornament and goody bag so if your child is attending the party, but doesn’t regularly attend God Squad please let me know if possible so I can make sure to make them an ornament and bag. I always have extra just in case, but if you have time, let me know!
I have so enjoyed the kids this fall and I’m sure I’ll be dying to get them back after Christmas, but I wish you all a very relaxing rest of December. A break from activities is always nice for parents, I know this!
See you Sunday!!
