This Spring has been full of worship and fellowship opportunities for families. It has been fun to see families gathering for worship at the 9am service on the lawn which returned to the worship calendar this Spring. The 9am outdoor service looks and sounds very much like it does indoors, just with an added breeze and maybe some traffic noises. If your family hasn’t attended yet please consider joining us very soon! The service is intentionally geared towards families but all are welcome. Children are an integral part of this service. They serve as greeters and bell ringers and are invited to participate in various ways throughout the service. 

Families have also been gathering on the playground for a time of fellowship and fun every Sunday at 10am. This time has been a wonderful opportunity for parents to visit and children to play together in a safe way. Our playground has plenty of space to play and plenty of shade for the warmer Spring and Summer days so this offering will continue through Summer 2021! Coffee, water and a small snack are provided every Sunday.

Other Children and Family Ministries offerings for the summer will include VBS Sports Camp in June and some all-parish events. Please save the dates for these and plan to attend as many as you are able!

Save-the-date for these Summer events:

  • Saturday, June 19: Parish Workday and VBS Decorating Day
  • Wednesday, June 30: Parish Movie Night
  • Wednesday, July 21: Parish Field Day and Cookout
  • Sunday, August 22: Backpack Blessing and Water Day with Lunch on the Lawn
Looking to the Fall, I am hard at work making plans for safe, socially-distant indoor Sunday school classes this Fall. You’ll see many familiar Sunday School teachers ready to greet Godly Play, Communion Instruction and 4th and 5th Grade students when they return in September. Look for more information in emails and future tidings and reach out to me if you have any questions about these Sunday school offerings.

VBS Sports Camp

Registration is open and plans are underway for this fun event in June! Sports camp will run June 21-25, 2021. AO Sports incorporates exciting sports games with a VBS theme, for fun, laughs, and more. There is an option for a full or half-day program. See the flyer for more information.
