Happy Advent Everyone!!!
Our Sunday Schoolers have finished the
Fruits of the Spirit!! We learned about God’s
gifts for us and how to use them in the
world. We also tried some different recipes
for some fruity treats!!
Families picked up Advent bags full of fun and
engaging activities! Families can read along
each day and week and learn together about
the nativity and the journey to Christ’s birth.

We have some great events coming up like
our Christmas Caroling on Friday, December

10th and our 2nd Annual Chopped-
Gingerbread House Challenge. Come one,

come all and join in the fun!!!!!
Stay tuned and stay connected!!

Happy June Friends! We are heading toward our last weeks of Sunday School. We've been learning about Mother's Day and Memorial Day. This month we will be celebrating Father's Day and touching down for our year. We will be sending information out for VBS and other activities that may be happening over the Summer so stay tuned!!!

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you all know how grateful and honored I feel for serving as the Education and Family Ministry Coordinator. This has been a special time for me and a time of learning and getting to know all of you! Thank you for your patience during the pandemic and your participation as we navigated a new virtual way of holding Sunday School.

Thank you to all of our children, teachers, and volunteers who have made this experience a truly enjoyable one! I will miss you all. I am so excited to be passing the baton to Mackenzie!! She is a gem and is so passionate about our children and families of our church. Please take good care of her and help her in any way you all can. She has many exciting and new things planned and I cannot wait to hear all about how great things are going!

Thank you again for your support and encouragement. I feel so blessed to be a part of your church family. Peace and blessings to you all!!!


Gina Grubbs, Coordinator

Hi Friends!!!
