Christmas Program Details

Season’s Greetings!

We are excited to announce that Alan Feirer and Beth Miller will be heading up the Youth Christmas Program again this year!  It will be Sunday, December 11th during both services.  Courtney will provide activities and snacks between services to keep the kids entertained.

The 2nd-6th grade Christmas Program Practice will begin this Wednesday evening during the God Squad hour.  ALL God Squad kids and St. Paul Sunday School kids are invited to participate in the program. We will start with a meal at 5:15 as usual and practice will start at 5:30 and run until 6:30.  Attendance is mandatory the first night since we assign parts that night.  If you cannot make it Wednesday night, please let Beth or Courtney know in advance so Beth can save a part out.  Attendance at both services on December 11 is required for a speaking part.

PreK-1st practice will be Sunday mornings starting in November during the Sunday school music portion. They will continue to hold regular God Squad class sessions with RoxAnn and Liz as usual while the older kids practice.

We have a variety of part sizes available.  Please discuss with your child what size part they will feel most comfortable with.  The large parts usually run 10-15 lines, medium size parts 5-10 and small parts 1-4.  We also have non-speaking roles if they feel more comfortable that way.

We will provide all costumes or make them easily attainable.  No special purchases should be made to participate.

All lines must be memorized by the end of November.

If you have any questions, please call Beth at 205-9519.  We are looking forward to seeing your children Wednesday night!

Reminder: Bell Choir starts this Wednesday after the Christmas Program Practice (6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.).  If you want to sign your third-sixth grader up please contact Beth Miller!  Second graders will be accepted into bell choir on a case by case basis. Please speak to Beth if you have a second grader interested in Bell Choir.

Thank you for your participation!

Fall is HERE!

It’s finally starting to feel like fall! Over the past two weeks, the Pre-K through 3rd grade Sunday School kids have covered “Two Masters,” Luke 16:1-13 and “Parable of the Rich Man,” Luke 16:19-31.  Our Pre-K students even went home with some fun “You Can Help” kits courtesy of Camma Stott!  Our 4th-6th graders are working on Genesis and covered “Creation and God’s Image,” and “Trusting God: Noah and the Flood.”  I cannot rave enough about all of our educators this year…they are awesome!

Over the past two weeks our God Squad kids have discussed “Joseph and His Coat of Many Colors,” and “Joseph in Egypt.”   Practice for the Christmas Program will begin Oct. 12 (More details to come on that next week).

We still need to find volunteers to provide and serve the Oct. 12 and Dec. 14 (Christmas Party) God Squad Meals.  If you’re interested please let Courtney know!   Thank you for trusting us with your children, they are such a ray of sunshine for our church!

Fall Classes!

Our fall classes are back in session!   During Wednesday night’s God Squad our students discussed the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors–complete with some fashionable coat designs of their own!

Tomorrow, Sunday School resumes!  Because we had such a large celebration last week, the first day will be a regular Sunday School day.  We are saving some of the activities that we had planned for tomorrow for the spring (Dunk the Dads being one of them…sorry, dads).  Tomorrow morning I will have donuts and juice for the kids beginning at 9:15.  Sunday school starts at 9:30 with music and then class.

Parents:  Please save the date for the St. Paul Christmas Program on December 11th.  All God Squad and Sunday School kids are invited to participate in the Christmas Program.  Practices will be held during God Squad later in the fall, more details to follow on this event.  Our November 9th God Squad will be devoted to filling boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Please plan to send a photo of your child to Courtney by October 30th to put inside the boxes with the information sheet.  Our God Squad Halloween Party will be October 26th during God Squad.

I’m so excited to have all of your wonderful kids back in church!  They are such a fun, kind and generous group of kids and I’m so happy to know them!
