Children’s 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) 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!
(2) It’s time to start signing up to bring your car for Trunk or Treat! We need individuals or pairs of people who are willing to decorate their trunks and hand out candy to children trick-or-treating in our parking lot on Wednesday, October 25 from 6:30-8. Plan to arrive by 6:15 to get your vehicle in place. If you can bring your own candy and/or prizes to distribute, please do! We had a great crowd from our community last year, so plan on lots of trick-or-treaters.
(3) Can’t decorate your vehicle but still want to help? We need candy (no peanuts or nuts, please) AND small prizes (stickers, pencils, etc.) that we can hand out to children who participate in games organized by our youth. Let Amanda know if you can help!

It’s (Still) Ordinary Time!
In Godly Play, we call these the Great Green Growing Days.
As the days grow shorter, look for time and space to be quiet with God. This can take all kinds of forms: coloring, doodling, writing, working with play-doh or blocks, or just taking a few minutes to be still and silent.
