LABC Steak Out - Wednesday, September 6
Bring a side or dessert to share and join us for our annual church-wide cookout in the parking lot! Weather permitting, the children will head down to the lower lawn for some outdoor games after dinner.

Bring Your Family to Sunday School Day - Sunday, September 24
Children are invited to bring their parent(s) and/or grandparent(s) to Godly Play on this special Sunday. We’ll show families around the Godly Play room and listen together to the story of the Great Family.

Children’s Sunday - Sunday, October 22
Be sure to join us for preparation and rehearsals on October 4 and 18. We’ll plan to lead the congregation in exploring our Children’s Sunday theme: “God Is A Mystery.”

It’s (Still) Ordinary Time!
In Godly Play, we call these the Great Green Growing Days.
During this back-to-school season, try practicing the ancient Christian tradition of the examen together around the dinner table or at bedtime by asking one another these questions:
What was the best part of today?
What was the hardest part of today?
Where did you see God today?

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 13. If you’d be willing to co-teach a 3-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. Are you interested in learning more about Godly Play? Join us for a workshop at FBC Frankfort on Saturday, October 21 from 9-2 (We’ll carpool). We’ll learn about the philosophy behind Godly Play and have an opportunity to see some of the “Advanced” stories we don’t have yet at our church. Let Amanda know if you’d like to come!
