MAY 2020
Dear First Pres CREW families and friends, 

I miss your children so much!   This time has been one we will never forget; and although some good things have resulted from our forced home time, I am counting down the days until I can see smiles and get hugs from your little ones. 

Our staff is currently developing a plan for reopening the church.  With your children as our top priority, we will comply with all CDC and city government guidelines while maintaining an atmosphere of love and fun.  As soon as we have a date and approved plan, we will let you know.

In the meantime, please join us on Facebook Live at 10 am on Sundays, and enjoy the videos I make each week for your children- posted on our YouTube Channel and our website.  

Lastly, I read this verse today and it gave me much comfort. I am so thankful for our First Pres family!

Hebrews 10:24-25 
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

With love, 
Rachel Godin
QUESTIONS ABOUT GOD?



Does your child have any pressing questions about God, the Bible, or Jesus?  

Submit their questions via email, text or video to Rachel Godin!  Your child's question could be included in an upcoming  video- where Miss Rachel will answer it in a faithful, kid-friendly way!

For example, Charlotte wants to know, "Were there dinosaurs in the Garden of Eden?" 

CREW coins will be given for anyone who asks a question!

CHURCH SERVICES

As of now, First Pres church services will be held on Facebook Live, Sundays at 10 am.

Crew Children's Ministry videos will be posted on Facebook and YouTube every week for children! Fun videos will be 6 to 12 minutes long, have an important bible message and even hands on activities to do at home.
