Good Afternoon Parents and Teachers!
Health and Wellness fair- Our very own Holly Corcoran has put together a Health and Wellness Fair in order to earn her Gold Award for Girl Scouts and she has gone all out! The Farmington Valley YMCA will be attending along with Oxen Farm, Land Warrior Crossfit of Suffield, Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, Nurses, Dietitians, and the Big Y. There will be free health related take home items, free blood pressure screenings, a CPR Demo by Jason Osborne, and a chance to chat with Terri Bridges about the annual MS walk in Simsbury!
SUNDAY SCHOOL- Our DIGG Church was very short on Sunday because we wanted to participate in the baptism but we did have time to make some tags and play a quick game on the topic of doing Justly or doing what is right. Make sure you check out the Tags your kids made in the Narthex.
Youth Group- No Youth Group this Sunday because we have the Gaga Tournament on Saturday night
Gaga Tournament- This Saturday January 16th is our next Gaga Tournament. The Student who brings the most friends will get a prize as well as the student who wins the most games. We have also invited the Young Adult Group to join us. Dinner is going to be spaghetti and meatballs!
Mission Trip We will be having a joint youth group on January 24th with the Middle and High school groups and their parents. Please come and discuss the Mission Trip to Boston next year. Click here for the Center for Student Missions website. https://www.csm.org/boston.php
Youth Group Sweatshirts- It has been a while since we had our own Youth Group Hoodies. We are going to have a contest to create the logo for each group: Makers, Middle and High School. Remember, our mission statement is Ephesians 3:17-19:
17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Please let me know if you would like to be added to the youth or Sunday school calendars
