Children's Ministries
Children's Giving Containers

Our children have eagerly participated in the Debt Reduction campaign. They made individual gratitude cards and posters that are displayed in the Sanctuary and Atrium...have you seen them? Last weekend in Sunday school they made a giving container to hold their offering over the coming weeks. We encourage you to please spend some time discussing ways they can earn money to fill their offering banks and share with them how you are determining what you will give in the campaign. 
                       
November 24 and 25 we invite your children to bring their banks with them as a part of Commitment and Celebration Weekend. If your child did not make an offering bank and would like to, please contact Kristin Springer and we will gladly get you the supplies.
