Thanks to Jackson Lahner for planning the fun “We Three Kings” Epiphany Party!  Beckett Plate found the hidden piece so will be planning the party for next year!

     Our E.P.I.C. youth and several friends had a blast playing Lazer Tag!  Even the adults were in on the fun and might have won at least one round! We have had several families with younger children asking about Lazer Tag so we are going to plan another event where all ages can participate.

Sunday School:  Participation in Sunday School, Outstanding Attendance and Perfect Attendance will be recognized at the end of the year.  Those who have attended Sunday School 80% of the Sundays will be recognized for Outstanding Attendance. If you are out of town and attend another church, bring back a bulletin, give to your Sunday School teacher and it will be marked as present.

  Please let the office know if you would be willing to be on the substitute list. You can always say no if you are not available.  It’s nice to have a variety of names to call.

  The dates have been set for Confirmation Sunday (May 7) and Celebration/Senior Sunday (May 21). The last day of Sunday School will be May 14. The Confirmands will be invited to attend the high school class on May 14.

   Children to sing and ring on January 29. They will be singing and ringing after the children’s message. Please have your children meet at 9:15 a.m. in the chapel to practice.

Noisy Offering: The children will be collecting a “Noisy Offering” each last Sunday following their singing and ringing. They will come around the congregation and collect any loose change that you may have. The next noisy offering will be Sunday, January 29 and will support Change A Child’s Story.  Thank you for helping to “make a change” in someone’s life with our noisy offering.

Teacher Encouragement Lunch: Teachers, the Education Committee would like to invite you to a Teacher Encouragement Lunch on Sunday, March 5 at noon.  Please let Karen know if you plan to attend or not.

Vacation Bible School: Our dates for VBS for this summer are still being determined. The theme will be “Food Truck Party”. Would you like to be on the planning committee? A meeting will be set soon to begin planning.
