Here’s something that may be new to you: Adding “church” to your family calendar.
Here is how my Sundays look:
(It may be how your Saturday looks if you attend at Green Wood)
Have you considered the life-giving reasons why “church” should be on your calendar?
(a) Because research shows that active involvement in a faith community is a important factor in children becoming happy, healthy adults.
(b) Because church provides folks with a built-in extended family of positive role models.
(c) Because at church you can get to know a loving, forgiving God!
Get started with purposeful participation: delegate a block of time on your calendar for church!
Our first story of the new year will be The Parable of the Good Samaritan. Read about our story in Luke 10:25-37.
On Sundays, at the downtown location, here is the schedule….
|Date||Activities for 1st through 6th graders|
|9/6||Worship with your family. Read ahead of time, the scripture Nancy Lynn will be using: Luke 10:38-42 and James 2:14-17. Last week’s sermon was part one. Listen if you missed it.|
|9/13||Everyone participates in a Video Workshop in the Social Hall.
What a great way for all to be introduced to our story!
For the rest of the month, the 6th graders will do things a bit differently… (including special projects around our current Rotation). Stay tuned for a description of those activities!

What’s happening in each workshop?
- In the Video Workshop students will watch portions of the animated Veggie Tales video Are You My Neighbor?
- In the Art Workshop students will decorate cards for the visitation team to distribute to our home-bound neighbors.
