September was an exciting month for Children’s Ministries. On Bible Sunday, third graders were presented with their Bibles during worship. All were excited and proud to receive this special gift. BeTween started up again this month with fellowship activities to help the students get to know each other. Sunday school is off and running. If you are not receiving regular emails from Children’s Ministry and would like to be added to the mailing list, please email Emily.
Awake, an overnight ministry for children in grades 3-6 will take place on October 20 at 5 pm until October 21 at 8:30 am. The cost is $20 per child and $10 for additional siblings. The theme for this event is the story of Joseph. The night will include games, crafts, stories, fellowship and time with their Bible. Registration will begin on October 7 on the patio or by emailing Cori.
Looking ahead to October, BeTween will again be supporting the Sidewalk Sunday school Christmas Bags Ministry. Our children are raising money by hosting a car wash on October 21 from 11:30 to 1:30 in the church parking lot. Your donations will allow the children to fill Christmas Gift Bags for homeless children in Mesa. There will be no BeTween meeting on October 10 due to fall break. If your child, in 4th – 6th grade, would like to see what BeTween is all about, feel free to check out one of our meetings on Wednesdays from 6:45 – 7:30pm.
We are looking for students from 4th – 7th grade to serve as acolytes during our worship service. If you are interested please email Emily.
Dayspring Fall Festival will be held on Saturday, October 28th from 5-8pm. Tickets sales will begin on the patio on October 14th. Join us for an evening of family fun, games, food, bounce houses, and more.
Finally, if you are interested in becoming more involved with children’s ministry, whether you have a child in the program, taught Sunday school ages ago, or don’t have children of your own, we need you! We are looking for teachers and assistants for our 5th and 6th grade students and Pre-K and Kindergarten students. Schedules are flexible, no preparation is involved. Email Emily if you are interested.
