Greetings from First Step Preschool

Category: Outreach

We are so thankful to located at First Christian Church and are adjusting well. We truly do appreciate all the efforts put forth to enable us to be a part of this church family!

For the month of February, our unit lessons are the solar system and the presidents. The preschool class continues to work on their ABC books and the nursery class continues to craft their Noah’s Ark ABC books. The preschool class will conclude the month with “space camp” while the nursery class will hold a pajama party! Of course, both classes will celebrate Valentine’s Day with a party and an exchange of Valentine cards.

A huge thanks goes out to Samantha Pickens for volunteering at the preschool during her Christmas break! It was great to have an extra pair of hands.

We look forward to singing at the church on Sunday, February 3! Approximately 20 students have indicated they will be attending.

God’s blessings,

Jane Edging, director

2013 Church Camp Schedule and Information

Category: Fun & Fellowship, Outreach

This is an achived (past) event

Below is a camp schedule at Camp Barbee. There are camps for those in Kindergarten through high school. There are camps for those who are into sports or music, as well as traditional camps.

Note: camp registrations should be turned in by May 1st to be sure of having a spot at camp.

The church will make scholarships available again this year. The amount is uncertain and depends on how many will be going and the support of funding from the congregation. This year, we are asking that all campers complete the forms no later than APRIL 1 and have them turned into the office. No funds are needed at that time, but it will give the Christian Education Committee a good idea of where things stand.

The camp theme this year is ALL THINGS NEW

Junior Church Returns

Helpers needed in Sunday School

Category: Outreach, Sunday School Classes

Can you give the church a bit of your time? Less than one hour a week? Is that too much to ask? Our Sunday School program needs a teacher for the elementary class. It meets after church and is over around 11 :30. If you are interested or if you have questions before you say “yes” please contact Rhonda Hicks.
