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!!
An IMPORTANT message from Beth Miller below… Parents, if your kids can make it, it’s very important that they do so as they will practice up front with singing and work on speaking lines!
Hello all! We are making great progress with the Christmas Program. We are short a few practices from last year, so we will be having an extra practice this Sunday during the Sunday School hour. Practice will start at 9:45 and run about half an hour (little kids will practice regular time then have class). Your participation is much appreciated, as speaking lines will also be handed out to the little kids.
As always, please let Beth know if you have any questions!
Now, a message from Courtney: I need a few parent volunteers for the day of the dress rehearsal (next Saturday morning) to help get the kids into their costumes, etc. I’ll also need cookie, mini-muffins or fruit donations for the day of the program on Dec.11 (please bring to church and label by Dec. 10). We have a lot of kiddos and parents around in between programs so it’s nice to have snacks. Please contact me if you’re willing to help! So excited to see the finished program! Beth, Alan and the kids have been working so hard! Thank you to everyone!!
