GATHER AND GROW 

Gather and Grow will start at 9:30, generally lasting about 45 minutes.  We wanted to get away from the title “Education Hour” moving forward for several reasons going forward, so we’re trying out a name that’s a little more fun and flexible.  Some classes will last longer or shorter depending on the class.  Different age groups will have different formats.

CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL

Ages 1 - 2 will have classes with their parents. 

PS - K ages will have regular classes,

Grades 1 - 4 will have classes based on a “rotation model” with different topics and teachers. 

Grades 5 - 8 will now meet for Middle School class.  We are still working on a format for HS aged students. 

Children’s Church will continue on non-Communion Sundays during the second (Contemporary) service.  Like they do now, children through 4th grade may leave for Children’s Church right before the sermon. 

We would like to add two more leaders to the rotation in the New Year. Please contact Jenny Read for more info at jenniferstewart1225@yahoo.com

 

3M'S BIBLE STUDY

The 3M’s (More Mature Members), a group designed for seniors 55+, meet in the Community Center Cedar room weekly on Thursdays at 10:00am for an hour and a half to share in fellowship and study God's Word.

 

Occasionally, trips and traditions take us off campus. For more information, contact Jim Nordness or leave a note in his church mailbox. You may also call the church office at 360-491-3552.

ADOPT A FLOWER BED 

Spring is here and our flowerbeds are in need your TLC. You’ve heard it said “Many hands make for light work”; now it’s time to put those words into practice! Sign up to adopt a flowerbed in the Fellowship Hall, work in your space when you can.

FAITHLIFE TV

Did you know that Faithlife TV, the platform we are using to live stream our worship services, also has content much like RightNow Media?

 

Not only are you able to re-watch a past worship service, but you can watch children’s shows, faith based films, listen to music, etc. It is worth the browsing time!

CHILDREN'S CHURCH

We are so excited to offer Children’s Church on non-communion Sundays.  Children’s Church is a great way to give kids from Preschool - 5th grade a chance to be together and learn about God’s Word. 

 

We have a group of volunteers who lead Children’s Church with a lesson, an activity, songs and a prayer prepared for the kids.  Children’s Church will take place before the sermon and last until the end of the service.  Parents will pick their kids up from either a classroom or the gym in the community center.

 

If you have any questions about Children’s Church or would like to help in some way, please let Erin Holmquist know via email to erinhq@comcast.net.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED WEEKLY

Ushers: Ushers greet worshipers and help guide people to their seats before services, help gather offering and guide those taking Communion.
