Verse: Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart, so that I might not sin against you.”
Join us for fun-filled treasure and scavenger hunt games! Plus hot dogs, chips and treat will be served.
“Treasure His Word!” What a great theme for Sunday school this year! Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Children – our heritage from the Lord! How wonderful that God entrusts His priceless children to our care. Part of our care includes asking the Holy Spirit’s guidance as we plant biblical truths in their hearts. We had a great September…teacher installation; 3-year-olds getting their Bibles; a fun treasure hunt; hotdog meal; 3rd graders getting their study bibles; Cherub choir sang!
Thank you to the volunteers that are teaching and helping with Sunday school. Every year we have wonderful volunteers that take on the challenge of ministry to the kids. I feel that they are part of the reason our church is doing so well with Sunday school attendance. The volunteers go the extra mile to make sure the students’ faith is strengthened and to make the students feel loved by Jesus. I’m so proud of the high school students who are helping this year.
We welcomed our newest students to our P3 class this year on September 10th. They each received a wonderful kids’ bible with great bible stories and pictures. I encourage parents to read it to them every day.
Parents: Please sign and return the field trip/photo usage permission forms that are being sent home. The form is double-sided, so be sure to complete both sides. If you need the forms, there are extras in the wall cubes on the lower level.
We are always looking for helpers in the classrooms, even if it is for one Sunday per month. Let me know if you are interested or speak to your student’s teacher to see if she/he needs help with anything.
Confirmation students will be filling food packets for Feed My Starving Children on Saturday, October 7th, 2017. We will leave RLC at 7:15am and hand-pack meals for malnourished children from 8:00am – 10:00am. Please return the permission slip form that is being mailed home, or get one from the confirmation teachers.
The Third Grade students received the ESV Student Study Bible on September 17th, Bible Sunday. We celebrated this milestone event with cake and milk! All students in grades 3 on up: Remember to bring your bibles to class!
P4 Mission Project: P4 class will be collecting items for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.
- Find an average-sized shoebox. 2. Decide whether you will pack for a girl or boy and the age category. 3. Fill it with gifts…fun toys, school supplies, clothing outfit, hygiene items (no toothpaste, liquids or candy). 4. Pray for the child that will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo. 5. If you’d like to follow your box, you can donate $9 online and receive a tracking label! 6. Drop-off your shoebox, or items to include in a shoebox packed by the P4 class, by the end of October. National Collection Week is November 13th-20th. Check out the website for more information and ideas. https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
The Sunday school will be having a service walk event on October 15th, 2017. This event will take place during their normally scheduled Sunday school class time and will consist of a walk around the area in support of the LCMC Hurricane Disaster Relief efforts being made to help victims of hurricanes in the past few months. All Sunday school offerings in the month of October will be donated. Pray that those in need, Never Give Up.
In order for us to take your child off church grounds we will need your signed permission for our records. Please sign and return the form being sent home with students (or return the general field trip permission form).
Fourth Grade students will receive catechisms on October 29th at the 9:00 AM church service. Parents and students will be receiving information letters in the mail about this milestone event.
October is Pastor Appreciation month! Please take a moment to thank Pastor Roger for all the dedication and hard work he demonstrates every day. The 2nd graders will present Pastor Roger with heartfelt, handmade cards.
Fifth grade will celebrate their First Communion on November 5th after 6 weeks of instruction with their parents and Pastor Roger. Please come and help us celebrate this wonderful occasion.
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and scenery!
In God’s grace,
