Key for Kids & Families - August 2017

Summer Sunday Night Hangouts
Young families are invited to join us on Sunday nights for a casual time of fellowship and fun. Be sure to note that we’ll be painting shoes at the Sheenes’ August 13. Check your email for details about how to prepare.

Kids’ Book Club
Wednesdays,10:30 am - noon, through August 9.
Join us for an interactive “story hour.” We’ll weave Bible stories together with some of our favorite children’s books and have opportunities to participate in art, science, games, and other related activities.

LABC Steak Out
Wednesday, September 6 - Bring a side or dessert to share and join us for our annual church-wide cookout!

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. We’ll be launching our Wednesday night children’s activities September 6. If you’d be interested in co- teaching a 3-4 week session this fall, let Amanda know. There will be lots of variety, so we can definitely find you a spot that suits your gifts!
2. Interested in helping with Godly Play or just want to know more about what our kids are up to? Join us in Sunday School on Sunday, 3, 10, or 17th to hear a story and see what it’s all about. Let Amanda know if you plan to attend so we can make space for you in our room!
3. Can you sew? We would LOVE to replace our quickly deteriorating crayons bags for worship with sturdy fabric crayon rolls this fall. If you’d like to make a few, see Amanda for details. The simple pattern can be either emailed to you or printed for you to take home. It requires scrap fabric, felt, a button, and a ponytail holder, and thread, any or all of which Amanda can provide!
