IN THIS ISSUE

FROM THE PASTOR...
Church 
For many Americans, September hosts a day they have been anxiously awaiting for seven long months.   On September 5 th the new NFL season kicks off, as the teams return to the gridiron.   The most dedicated sports fans are almost fanatical in their devotion to their team.  They have a passion for their team and that passion is a defining aspect of who they are.  The most hardcore of sports seem to have a different approach to their love of the game or their team.

Little Lights Preschool

 
Preschool has gotten off to a good start.  Our preschoolers are getting used to our class routine and spending time away from their parents.  We started the year off with activities on colors.  During September the classes will work on the colors yellow, orange, purple, brown and black.  The students will enjoy looking for objects in the room that are the color of the week. 
Our MWF preschoolers will continue to hear stories about Daniel. They will learn that God watches over them.  Our T/TH class will continue to hear Bible stories about God making the world.  They will learn that God made the world and everything in it.
