Thanks go to the Normandy Youth Group and Boy Scout Troop 316 for their help with the Fall Festival. Not only did some teens come early to set up, but they stayed late to clean up. What awesome role models they are!
Did you know our caring Youth and Kids will be collecting items for Operation Christmas Child this month? This program collects millions of shoeboxes every year filled with small things such as teddy bears, toys, books, crayons, hard candy, hygiene items, socks and so forth and delivers them globally to children in third world countries at Christmas time along with the message of God’s love. Shoeboxes will be accepted through November 11th.
The Son Shine Singers sang enthusiastically in October! We won’t be singing this month, but will participate in the Gratitude Service on November 18th.
Kids Club 45 had a fantastic time joining the Youth for a corn maze in October. Our next event is Sunday, November 11th from 5-7 pm at Normandy for a pizza & game night. If you have a 4th or 5th grade child and have not received information on this by e-mail, please contact Amy Reese. We don’t want anyone to miss out.
Additional thanks this month goes to those who continue to volunteer as assistants in the Lower Level. We still need to fill the calendar, though! Please check with your child’s teacher and help create a safe and caring environment for our children to continue Digging into Discipleship.
Volunteers interested in learning more about our Kids programs are encouraged to contact Amy Reese, Director of Children’s Ministry, 433-1636 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
