Help Needed
It takes a lot of people to make children’s ministry great, and we appreciate everyone who invests time and energy into teaching our children about God’s love. Here are some upcoming ways that you can jump in and help:
(1) Have you been at LABC for a while? Our older children will be doing some investigative reporting about the history of our church, and they’d love to sit down with you for a few minutes on a Wednesday night during the next few weeks and hear your story. If you’re interested in answering their questions, let Amanda know!
(2) Would you like to go on an ADVENTure with our children and their families? We’ll spend some time on the first Sunday of Advent (December 3) on a journey through Bethlehem. We need adults who aren’t parents of young children who can help with art, stories, treats, and games that evening from 6-7:30 (please plan to arrive by 5:45).

Thank You
To everyone who helped us prepare for Children’s Sunday: Rosalind Campbell, Nicole Farmer, Katie Fowler, Margaret Powell, Blythe Sheene, Adam Standiford, Brian Wheeler
To those who attended the October Godly Play workshop: Rosalind Campbell, Maureen Elwyn, Carolyn Montgomery
It’s (Still) Ordinary Time!
In Godly Play, we call these the Great Green Growing Days.
In Sunday School, we’re approaching some of the lesser-known stories of the Old Testament. Ask a child to tell you about the tabernacle in the desert, the temple, or the prophets and see what they might have to teach you!
