We will meet downstairs each Sunday before services begin in the Welcome Center and then move to our rooms. We are finishing a group of lessons on the Fruits of the Spirit and will move to lessons about The Lord’s Prayer. I can’t wait to share this with you all!
Kids JAM - Jesus and Me
Monday Nights
6:30 - 7:30 pm

JAM meets Monday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm downstairs in the LIME Room. Enter through the backdoor and head downstairs where we'll meet in the Welcome Center. We are using a curriculum called Simply Loved. Our Unit now is Joseph’s Story and our Bible point is God is good (no matter what). We’ve done several lessons using this curriculum and are loving it! Please note, there will be no JAM on Monday May 31 Memorial Day. Enjoy that time with your family.
KIDS MUSIC CLUB!
If you have a child who would enjoy learning how to play boomwhackers, chimes and sing, we would love to hear from you! We are adding a new music group for kids to make new friends, have fun with music, and learn about worshipping God and sharing their gifts during Sunday morning services. Our children's and worship music leaders will be working with the kids!
UPCOMINING KIDS EVENTS
Let’s JAM at Swaffy’s Ice Cream Shop on Monday May 24th at 6:30. I’ll provide the ice cream and KIDS enjoy the fun. We’ll plan to meet at Swaffy’s unless they are not yet open during the week. In that case, we will have ice cream and fellowship at the church. Invite a friend! Stay tuned!
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Join us Sunday May 9 as we celebrate Mothers and maybe your Mom can leave with a special gift. If you have any questions, contact Stacy at sfrancis@monroepres.com
