Christian Education (November 2011)

posted Dec 18, 2014, 2:43 PM by Henry McTague

Where has the time gone? It is hard to believe that it is November and thanksgiving is around the corner. Thanksgiving is a special time to share with family and friends. Each year on Thanksgiving, our family shares what we are thankful for.

In January, I decided to spend the year thanking those individuals that have influenced the person whom I have become or have touched my life in a special way. Each week, I send a postcard to someone. I spend a lot of time pondering of who I want to recognize that week. It has been a wonderful, rewarding experience to recognize each person. What/who are you thankful for? Take time to be grateful for all that you have and all the people that have or are impacting your life.

Communion Class: Communion class will be held on October 30th at 10:30 AM with a Seder with Rabbi Sam Seicol. The children will be making Communion elements on Saturday, November 5th at Pastor Gail’s home. On November 6th, the children will assist with servicing Communion at both services. All children in grade 5 are welcome in Communion class. If you have an older child that would like to participate, please see me.

Hanging of Greens: The children will be making Gingerbread houses during Sunday school on Sunday, November 27th. During this time, we will also be putting up the Christmas tree in fellowship hall. We welcome any parents who are willing to assist us with this fun activity. It has been a real hit for the past few years.

Confirmation: Since we only have one child in 8th grade, CE committee, Pastor Gail and I have decided to take this year to revamp the Confirmation class. The one youth has been approached and will join the class in January 2013.

Nursery: The nursery is in desperate need for volunteers. We have many Sundays with no volunteers. If you could do one Sunday per month, it would really help. It is a great opportunity to work with the youngest children in our Congregation.

Thanks for your continued support for the CE program.

In God’s love,

Christian Education Director
