KICK-OFF SUNDAY & BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS
Although we will not be able to gather in person, we will officially kick off the 2020-2021 Sunday School year on Sunday, August 16. All children will “move up” to their new class/grade. We’ll have our annual Blessing of the Backpacks for elementary children (kindergarten–5th grade) during the online worship services. We look forward to celebrating this special day!
TRANSITION SUNDAY FOR RISING KINDERGARTENERS:
On Sunday, August 16 between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., Our rising kindergarteners are invited to a special drive-thru Transition Sunday. Families, you will stay in your vehicles and drive up to the main lobby doors. Children's Ministries staff will greet you there and present your child with a gift bag to mark this important milestone! We hope you can come be a part of the celebration. Sign up here to let us know if your kindergartener will attend. We look forward to seeing you! For details, email Leslie Lowery.
