Children and Youth meet each Sunday morning in the Sanctuary with Mr. Stephen for music and are dismissed at 9:20 to their Sunday School class. The children in PreK—Grade 5 are continuing to use the Deep Blue Curriculum, with this year’s theme being Loving God, Loving Neighbor!  The unit of study for February is “Leaders of the Community.” In Sunday School and Just Kids Church we’ll be diving into the books of Judges, 1 Samuel, and 2 Kings for Bible   Stories about Deborah, David, The Servant Girl, and Josiah.  February’s Bible Verse is “He did what was right in the Lord’s eyes. 2 Kings 22:2.

Children attending Just Kids Church are dismissed from the worship service with their teacher(s) each Sunday morning.  At the present time I would encourage you to prayerfully consider volunteering to take a turn spending time with our children in the Nursery and/or Just Kids Church.  Safe sanctuary trained leaders would be most welcomed in both these areas!

On February 2ndth our children will participate in special “Souper Bowl” activities during the Sunday School Hour and are reminded to bring their donations to vote for their favorite  Super Bowl Team!  We’ll be wearing our team colors and invite the congregation to do the same!

Youth will continue meeting with Pastor Katie or a member of their teaching team each week after music as they continue their weekly discussion of the current day’s Lectionary verses and how it relates to their present day lives. Pastor Katie has been in touch with youth (and each one’s parents) about a confirmation class that will be offered from February through May.  If we’ve missed you, we apologize; however, if you have an interest in being a part of this confirmation class, please contact Pastor Katie ASAP for details!

SERVING … During February, in addition to the Jubilee Project in Hancock County, TN, we’ll be collecting SOUP, SOCKS, and SNACKS  for Holly Place, REACH and  Micah’s Backpack. The congregation is encouraged to join us. Use your donations to Vote for your favorite “Super Bowl” Team.  Look for the colorful streamers representing the San Francisco 49ers and  Kansas City Chiefs near the 2nd floor ramp door and Micah’s Backpack room. Which team will be favored by our church family?  Thanks for supporting these mission projects!
