Children’s Work Day - Thursday, October 11, 10 am -3 pm
1st-6th graders are invited to spend the day at LABC. We’ll order pizza for lunch and work on preparations for kids’ participation in worship during the month of November. We’ll also enjoy some fellowship time in the gym! Please let Amanda know if your child plans to attend so we’ll be sure to have enough materials and food for everyone! (Adults, if you’d like to help with all or part of this day, let Amanda know that as well).

Children’s Sunday: For Such An (Ordinary) Time As This - October 21
Join us as our children lead us in worship on this special Sunday. We’ll hear the story of Esther told by our older children, have a music presentation from our younger group, and view everyone’s artwork on display in our worship space. The children will finish their preparations for Children’s Sunday on Wednesday nights, October 3 & 17, so parents, please make sure your child is present to participate at those times!

Orff Instruments - Sunday evenings beginning October 28 (time TBD)
1st-6th graders are invited to come and learn some Advent music on our Orff instruments during late October and November. We’ll share those songs in worship on December 16 alongside the children’s Christmas play.

Trunk or Treat - October 24: 5:30-7 pm
Wear your costume and join us in the upper parking lot for treats, games, and more! Watch for social media posts to share with your friends and neighbors! Adults, see page 1 for more information about how you can help with this fun community event!

Trunk or Treat Help Needed - October 24: 5:30-7 pm
We are in need of LOTS of adults to decorate their cars and hand out candy in the upper parking lot. This is a great opportunity to meet and connect with families in our community and especially in our weekday preschool, so please make joining us a priority! If you’d like to decorate your car and aren’t sure where to start, try searching “Trunk or Treat” on Pinterest or Google images for inspiration! Because there are many children in our community with food allergies, please consider purchasing candy or other treats that do not contain nuts or having an alternative treat, like a sticker or small toy, available for children who need it. Let Amanda know if you plan to participate!

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. If you are interested in helping with fall Wednesday night activities in our children’s ministry in November or December, please let Amanda know. We have a variety of fun options available!
2. We’ve had a baby boom and are in need of some volunteers to join our Wednesday night nursery rotation. If you’d be interested in helping Linda, our wonderful nursery worker, on a monthly basis (or more) this school year, let Amanda know.

Thank you to our amazing September volunteers!
