Christian Education

From the Preschool Director

Its October already. Our first month of school was successful. I feel all the children are on their way to reach their fullest potential. The parents are making a real effort to send in nutritious snacks and lunches to pro-mote healthy habits. This month will be very busy with lessons about the fall, a field trip and Noahs Ark Day.

Noahs Ark Day is our annual alternative to Halloween. All the children and teachers are hard at work preparing songs for the program. The program will be in the church Fellowship Hall on Monday, October 30 and on Tuesday, October 31. We invite all of you to come and watch as we parade in our costumes and sing. Refreshments will be provided for the parents so please stay and meet the families of Maize Manor Preschool.

Children’s Worship

Children’s Worship meets each Sunday when the children are dismissed with a prayer by Pastor Ryan from the Contemporary Worship service (around 11:15am). The kids’ worship time starts with a Bible story during large group in the Sanctuary, then splits off into agelevel groups for fun activities. During the month of October, Children’s Worship will focus on the theme, “From Shepherd to King,” where they will learn about the life of David in the Old Testament. Many thanks to our wonderful children’s education volunteers for all they do!

Women’s Bible Study

The Womens Bible Study will begin a fall study on Tuesday, October 17 7:008:30 in the Parlor. We will be studying The Lords Prayer. Jesus was showing his followers how to pray – including his followers today. As we learn about the Lords Prayer, we will also begin to pray as Jesus instructed us to pray. Join us as we cultivate a passion to pray
