Fall Classroom Parties

This October, we'll have the first of our classroom parties. Children get SO excited! Each classroom will have two parent volunteers. We love to have parents plan games or crafts for the classes that are fall, harvest, or pumpkin-related. 

Halloween is NOT a part of these celebrations. We also must discourage party food in the classes due to a greater number of allergies among the students.  However, treat bags left in the cubbies for children to take home are a great idea.


Does your child get enough rest and downtime? We see many tired children!

NEW SERIES STARTING OCTOBER 14/15 AT RIVERTREE JACKSON

Jesus started his public ministry with a bang, delivering a provocative sermon known as "The Sermon on the Mount." What made this sermon provocative was the way it challenged just about the entire religious system and way of life that Jesus' audience considered to be good and true.

In just a few short words, Jesus gave the people a new way to be human that the world had never seen before. Join us to celebrate the way in which Jesus' words can continue to shape the way we live today.
