April 6: Dedication of Viviana Hardin
It is a joy to have babies and children as part of our congregation. So, we are delighted that Viviana Hardin will be brought forth by her mother Bree, father Rob and Sister Ellie to be dedicated. In our church we follow Jesus who asked that the children come to him. When a parent dedicates a child, they are promising to raise that child in a home filled with the love of God. We as a congregation also have the opportunity to promise to care for and help the child grow.
On Saturday April 13th children will follow an ancient tradition of commemorating Jesus' entry into Jerusalem by processing with Palms at the beginning of worship. Children of all ages are invited to participate. Teens are needed to help walk with the children, too. Please meet Pam in the foyer at 5:20 for instructions and to receive Palms. After the procession and Children's Message, children will return to Child Care or to their seats in worship.
EASTER EGG HUNT
The Oh-So-Fun Easter Egg Hunt will begin ASAP after worship on the 13th. We'll gather in the downstairs foyer to begin. There will be different sections for different ages-so even toddlers will have a place to hunt. Don't forget to bring baskets and cameras! Rain? We'll hunt indoors.
EASTER IS COMING APRIL 21
Easter Sunday is the only Sunday service New Song has each year. Worship begins at 9:00.
Since Holy Cross will also be in session, you'll find the New Song Child Care downstairs in classrooms filled with fun things for the children to play with and create. We'll have paid child care workers on this day so please sign in and introduce your children when you arrive.
HAPPY 10th ANNIVERSARY NEW SONG! APRIL 27
Well, the snow cancelled, long awaited Anniversary celebration is almost here-and spring will be a wonderful time to thank God for our church and thank Holy Cross for their generosity. We are a "safe and welcoming" community and I'll add a loving community. It would be so special to see our church filled with people and children on this day. Of special interest will be a film near the end of worship. It will be amazing to see children growing up right before our eyes and get an idea of what New Song folks have been doing for 10 years!
Songbirds and SuperKids will be singing and New Song Youth will be participating in various ways. We need them! Please be at worship at 5:15 and meet teachers in the foyer so we may share instructions with children.
Graduating is one of those special stepping stones in life. This year we have several young people who are graduating and we ask God to bless them as they transition to the next phase of their lives.
