The momentum in Children's Ministries never slows, so I'm applying brakes just long enough to share our Eastertide schedule with you.


Wednesday, March 3   Awana clubbers will be dressing in their best cowboy and cowgirl duds to have fun at "Western Night." Themed activities will include special games, Council Times, and best costumes will win prizes.


Thursday, March 4   Sunday School teachers and helpers will be the honored guests at an annual appreciation dinner in Parish Hall. Phil's BBQ will cater this mouthwatering event.


Sunday, March 7   Our Sparks team members, who were first-place winners in the February 13 AwanaGames, will receive commemorative champion medals. Read About The Team Victory Here.»


I will be emphasizing the Scripture verses I Corinthians 9:24–25:

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever."


We need to live our Christian lives as winners, obeying God's Word and looking forward to our eternal reward—heaven!


Wednesday, March 10   Pastor David will be a speaker in our Awana Truth & Training Council Time at 7:00pm. Our scheduled theme is "Sword Fighting."


Sunday, March 28   During the 9:00am traditional worship service, all Sunday School class members will be parading through the church sanctuary carrying palm fronds to honor Palm Sunday, the day that Jesus entered Jerusalem prior to his crucifixion. Refer to Matthew 21:1–11Mark 11:1–10Luke 19:28–38 and John 12:12–14.


Wednesday, March 31   Ralph West will be leading a special Easter lesson in our Awana Truth & Training Council Time.


Sunday, April 4   In honor of Easter, Sunday School class members will share special fun and festivities.
