Sign up for Secret Pals again this summer! Just send 2-4 postcards to your young Secret Pal to brighten up their mailbox and keep in touch during these busy months. In September we’ll have a special reception at church when our pals get to connect in person. This is a fun tradition started by Sheila Bennion and loved by all participants! 

Our Confirmation Service will take place on Sunday, June 4th @10:30. This beautiful service marks the end of an 8 month journey these young people have made with their dedicated mentors and Pastor Gail. I hope you can be there to support our young confirmands as they reflect on the earliest steps of their faith journeys and commit to the next part of their lives in the church.  It is always a meaningful experience for all. We will have our regular contemporary service at 8:30 that morning. 

Don’t miss Children’s Sunday at 9:30 on June 18th. This will be our first official single service to begin the summer worship schedule. Our students and teachers are developing some creative ways to show you some of what they have learned during Sunday school this year. The Junior Bell Choir will perform for us and Roxanne is planning something special for our students to entertain our church family. Each of our classes impressed me so much during last year’s special service and I know the congregation will love to witness all the spiritual growth in our students.  

We will not offer Sunday school classes over the summer. I will have age-appropriate activities available in the sanctuary for those young people who attend during these warmer months. I would like to continue growing the size of our teaching staff next fall, so teachers can have some more time to also attend worship. Please prayerfully consider how you can help our Sunday school program by helping with attendance, teaching 1- 4 times a month, or helping in the nursery. It will truly enrich your faith! 

May God lead your path,

Jill Paré, Director of Christian Education
