Calling All Explorers - ages 4-11

Wesley Adventures Wesley Adventures - Exploring God’s World We will meet in Faith Factory (Room 102) at 9:45am for music, games, lesson, and crafts.


Higher Ground Service

Our Higher Ground Service will begin as always at 8:45am this Sunday - and we hope that everyone will be joining us to share their youthful exuberance in singing some cool, worshipful Christian contemporary songs. Please remember that this Sunday is the end of Daylight Saving Time so be sure to set your clocks back an hour and get more sleep.

We are calling this week's contemporary service "We Believe" Sunday as we'll share some wonderful Christian songs that we hope will inspire all to affirm our faith while we worship God.

All of the songs we'll be singing will bring a lot of thoughtfulness, youthfulness and worshipful lyrics for each of us to enjoy and to sing along with everyone in the congregation. Children of all ages are encouraged to join us and worship God in a relaxed and friendly setting.


Children's Christmas Pageant

"The Christmas Present" will be our next adventure in Sunday school beginning November 16. Alicia Wyler, our Kid’s Theater director, will be leading our children and youth as they prepare a Christmas Pageant for the congregation. There will be something for ALL children—those who want to be performers, and those who want to be behind the scenes. Rehearsals will be part of our Sunday School on Sundays from 9:45-10:45am.

  • November 16
  • November 23
  • (No Rehearsal November 30)
  • December 7
  • Show/Rehearsal December 14

This is a great way for your family to prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus!


New Sunday School Class

Exciting News! We will have a new Sunday School class for parents across the hall from the Faith Factory room. Pastor Ray will be leading a discussion on "Discovering Your Strengths" using the book, "Now, Discover your Strengths" by Buckingham and Clifton. The class will also discuss spiritual strengths and the tests for both. This class will meet on November 2, 9, 16, and 23. They will select another book in December and January.

The Common Ground class in the library and the Seekers class in the lounge will also continue to meet.

Bring your child on Sunday at 9:45, and then join the discussion for some quality "adult" time in Sunday School.



Please Be a Good Neighbor

Our neighbors have noticed people attending services speeding as well as blocking residents’ driveways. If you are able to do so, please park in our lot instead of on the street. As good Christians and good neighbors, we need to slow down and “drive friendly.”


Children

Children are always welcome in our worship services, but we have other options, too – please choose whatever is best for your family:

  • Our nursery downstairs, Room 112, is available for 0-3 year olds
  • Children’s Church and Choir – after the Children’s Message in Room 105B

Children are welcome to pick up a canvas worship bag from the large basket behind the greeters. They contain coloring books, crayons, note pads, and books. After worship, please return the bag, but keep any “masterpieces” your child has made.

New this Fall – We invite children to participate in the entire 8:45am Higher Ground Worship Service. After the Children’s Message, they will return to sit with their parents and enjoy the remainder of the service in the Fellowship Hall. If parents wish, children ages infant through 4 years old may go to the Nursery.
