Easter Celebration @ the Powells - Saturday, April 14, 1-3 pm
Come celebrate Easter with us (a little belatedly) in the Powells’ yard. We’ll have a variety of station activities and end with a big egg hunt. Let Amanda know if you need directions. Bring a friend!

Orff Instrument Practice - Sundays, April 15- May 6, 5 pm
Join Amanda and Adam in the choir room to practice an Orff arrangement. We’ll help lead in worship on Sunday, May 13 (Mother’s Day). This group is open to 1st grade and up. If at all possible, participants need to attend all four rehearsals.

Earth Day “Called to Create” Celebration - Sunday, April 22, 3:00 pm
Join us at the Stillwells’ for some outdoor art and fun with nature. We’ll tie-dye, paint, and probably make a few messes. Wear old clothes and bring a friend! (We’ll wrap up around 4:30, but we’ll bus the Orff crew to church for rehearsal at 5).

It’s Easter!
The season of Easter doesn’t last just one day. It goes on for six more Sundays! Young families, watch for the Easter eggs to show up in your yard between now and Pentecost (May 20)! Enjoy the treats, refill the eggs with candy, and pass them on to another LABC family. If you need addresses, let Amanda know!

Bible Memory Challenge
The LABC kids’ Bible memory challenge is on until Pentecost. If you need a copy of the memory verse sheet, let Amanda know. Parents, watch your email for periodic “bonus point” offers.

Thank You
Thank you to our awesome Wednesday night missions teachers!
Julie Dexter, Trina Elliot, Katie Fowler, Alicia Nickens, Amanda Shoults, Jason Shoults, Dianne Stillwell, Nicole Wheeler

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) Want to celebrate Easter with the LABC kids? Volunteers are needed to help staff the stations at our Easter Celebration at the Powells’ house on Saturday, April 14 from 1-3. If you can help, let Amanda know.
(2) Can’t attend the Easter celebration but willing to stuff some eggs? There’s a huge container of eggs in the church office and a pile of grocery bags to put them in. Take as many eggs as you want to fill (no nuts, please!) and return them to the office by Thursday, April 12. (If you’re coming to the Easter celebration, you’re welcome to just bring them directly there).
(3) We’re still in need of some help in the nursery on Wednesday nights. If you can help Linda from 6:45-7:45 one Wednesday in April or May, please contact Amanda!
