Sunday School
Beginning September 3rd, 2017 Sunday School for age 3 through grade 5 will begin. The children will beet together as they study Bible stories for the month.  The stories will be presented in various ways, such as costumes/readers' theater/magic rings similar to Vacation Bible School.  The second week, September 10th will be crafts related to the stories. The third week, September 17th, will be science experiements that relate to the stories, and the fourth week, September 24th will be cooking/snacks that relate to the stories.

Ms. Boese will be leading the groups during the month of September, and she will need helpers each Sunday.

We are also planning to begin Children's Sunday school with singing for 9:45 to 10:00 am with music related to the stories of the month.

"Kids 4 Christ" will meet on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.  This program is for ages 3 years through grade 5. They will focus on learning about characters from our Sunday school lessons.  This is an active time with crafts, science, social science, and snacks.  Ms. Boese and Ms. Olson welcome anyone who would like to help with this ministry.

Grace & Peace,
Angela Boese,
Director of Children's Ministries

Sunday School
Classes are held Sunday morning at 9:45 a.m. in the Education Wing for 6th-8th graders and 9th -12th graders.
Youth Group
 We started off the school year "moving" to the next grade.  The youth are gaining a great group of students.  Sue Tanner led a joint lesson with a back to school lesson that focused on Galatians 5: 22-24.  Creating a rainbow for the "Fruit of the Spirit": Red--Love, Orange--Joy, Yellow--Peace, Green--Patience, Blue--Kindness/Goodness, Purple--Faithfulness, Brown--Gentleness, Pink--Self-control.  Everyone of these actions is something we all can strive for everyday at school.  We may see conflict, so let's show some self-control and kindness to help with a situation.  Use kindness and treat others with respect.  I hope everyone has great teacher(s).

September 10th, we are launching our Mentor Program.  Please start working on your list of interest, school activities, and hobbies.  We want to team up our congregation with our youth.  It takes a village to raise our children and the more support every kid has the more they can achieve.

Now for the fun stuff. . .It's important to know when the first youth group night will be.  We are starting September 6, 2017 at 6:30 pm.  We will be kicking off our night with some burgers and brats and snow cones! We probably should play GAGA Ball too. We will go until 8:00 pm.

A couple of upcoming youth events are the Kansas State Fair, Ride o Rama, September 17, 2017.  The tickets are $25.00, + gate fee.  We will leave at the end of second service and head to Hutchinson.  We will leave Hutchinson at 5:00 pm. RSVP by September 13th.

The Great Plains Renaissance is September 24th.  Tickets are $8.50 ($12 at gate).  We will depart after second service and leave Wichita at 5:00 pm.  RSVP by September 20th.

Pastor John has speciffically asked the youth to help stream our church services, "LIVE ON FACEBOOK".  Please let me know if you are interested in filming first or second service and we will put you on the rotation.  We are also going to implement weekly "School Updates" during our church services.  Our youth will take turns keeping the congregation in the "know". We have 5 school districts of youth, so I know there is an activity that you will want to attend.  Parent/youth please email me schedules and activities as they arise. EMAIL:
Share the Love!
