Mission Blitz Day

Children's Sabbath
Precious in His Sight: Answering the Call to Cherish and Protect Every Child
Sunday, October 19 (8:30 and 11:00 services)

 Gather with us in worship as we join many congregations around our country for the National Observance of Children's Sabbath. It is an annual opportunity for people of all ages and faiths to learn about the needs of children and the mandate in every faith tradition to nurture and protect children, to seek justice on behalf of those most vulnerable.
On this Sunday those who work with our children, parents and the children themselves will be leading us in worship through their participation in leading the children's sermon, reading scripture, praying, collecting offering and singing at 8:30 (preschool 4s & Kindergarten) and 11:00 (grades 1 & 2 choirs and any K-Grade 5 choir children who are there for the benediction) and collecting offering.
I hope each family will make plans to be here!
