Good Afternoon Parents and Teachers!
PUMPKIN PATCH- As you know the Pumpkin Patch began last weekend and, as of right now, we are still looking for people to cover shifts at the Patch. Please make every effort to cover a shift. The Pumpkin Patch helps to cover the cost of the youth group Mission Trips. These mission trips have changed the lives and opened the eyes of many teenagers past and present. They are a valuable asset to the entire youth ministry program and by supporting the pumpkin patch you are supporting our Youth.
Shifts needing coverage:
Saturday October 15th- 3-5:30pm The Animal Blessing is at 4!
Monday October 17th- 12:30-3pm, 5-7pm
Wednesday October 19th- 12:30-3pm, 3-5pm
Thursday October 20th- 5-7pm
Friday October 21st- 5-7pm
There are more Shifts which need to be covered and we will go over those in the following weeks.
Please let me know what shift you would like to cover and I will put it on the calendar. Again the Pumpkin Patch helps to fund and provide financial assistance to students going on the Summer Mission trip. Please make every effort to support our Patch.
VOLUNTEER COORDINATORS NEEDED: I am still looking for a couple of people to help place those reminder calls. It is a HUGE help to me knowing that someone else has made those calls to remind everyone about their shifts and that I don’t have to do it after closing the patch every night. It only takes a little while but I can’t tell you the weight it takes off of me at the end of the day. Please consider helping out this way, especially if you can’t take some shifts yourself.
Volunteer Coordinator times needed:
October 22-24 Saturday- Monday
October 29-31 Saturday- Monday
YOUNG MUSICIANS GROUP- This year we would like to have a group of young instrumentalists play during the Children’s Christmas Eve service. This is for anyone 4thgrade through high school. If your child plays an instrument please consider joining Ms. Sharon Girard in the Chapel on October 16th after church. Students, please bring your instrument lesson book with you so Ms. Sharon can see what you have learned on your instrument. She is then going to put together a couple of songs based on the instruments available for you to play during the 4:00pm Children’s Service on Christmas Eve. Introductory meeting THIS SUNDAY, October 16th after church.
