Bible Verse this Month
“The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY!” Psalm 126:3
Apples and Thanksgiving
Thank you for participating in the Fall Festival, All Aboard Noah's Ark! It was so nice to spend time together as a preschool family and see the adorable preschoolers perform. We'd like to send a huge thank you to the parents and preschool committee members who helped set up before the festival and worked in the kitchen. Also, thank you to everyone for helping clean up afterwards. It went smoothly and quickly!

This month, we'll learn about apples, make Thanksgiving projects, share things we are thankful for and discuss how to show our thankfulness to others.
In Chapel, we are learning the meaning of each letter in the word "JOY". We'll also be getting ready for our Christmas show, Christmas in Our Jammies!
 
J *= Jesus (think of what Jesus wants us to do)
O *= Others (think of others)
Y *= Yourself (then think of yourself)

Christmas in Our Jammies!

Our annual Christmas program will be on December 13th, at 6:30pm in the sanctuary. This year we'll be performing "Christmas in Our Jammies!" And you guessed it, we would like the children to wear their special Christmas jammies that night! They can be last year's jammies, a borrowed pair from a friend or sibling, or new for this year. Everyone is welcome to join in the jammie fun! Please reach out to Adrienne Mesa if you have any questions. Merry Christmas!

Thank you for helping us support our serviceman!
