All Children’s Ministry Volunteers have an Orientation Meeting downstairs on Sun., 9/7, at 8:45 a.m. We’ll do some training, get to know one another, and hear about plans for this school year.
Sun., 9/14, right after the 10 a.m. worship service, there is a mandatory 15 minute meeting for parents/guardians of youth and children. Kids will remain downstairs rather than coming back at the end of the worship service and you will be reunited with them following our meeting. This is a chance to update your child’s registration, meet our volunteers, meet each other, and hear plans for this year!
