Sunday, August 20
Sunday, August 20, is Promotion Sunday for our preschoolers, children, and youth. On this day, our children will begin the morning in their current classrooms, and then at 10:30 a.m., we will promote those who are going into new classes and departments.
A highlight of this day will take place in worship when we present our first graders with a new Bible. This gift from our church to these children is a symbol of our desire to place God’s Word in their hands and upon their hearts.
Also during worship, we will have a Blessing of Students. Preschoolers, children, and youth are encouraged to bring their backpacks to worship for a time of individual blessing and to receive a gift to carry with them throughout the school year.
Following worship there will be a picnic and celebration for families of preschoolers and children. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic for their family, and a bathing suit for their children. We will picnic together, and let the children have some wet fun with the waterslide and other water toys. It will be a great way to celebrate the beginning of a new season of Sunday School.
