Morning Drop Off at the Ministry Center Entrance
In an effort to eliminate traffic congestion and ease traffic flow on Ziegler Road, please use the church parking lot to drop off your child at the entrance to the Ministry Center located behind the church. Mr. Lustila will be in the back parking lot standing outside the entrance where the children will go in. If you wish to park, please park in the back parking lot near where Mr. Lustila will be standing. Once you have dropped off your child, Mr. Lustila recommends you use the exit on the west side of the Ministry Center. Mr. Garcia will be standing outside the church doors to direct traffic towards the Ministry Center drop off location. Thank you for your cooperation.

One more scheduled rehearsal:

Extended Care on Friday, December 17
Do you need Extended Care on Friday, December 17 after the early dismissal at 11:30 a.m.? If so, you need to sign up using the online form or by contacting the office or Mrs. Kramer. Deadline to register is MONDAY! We will need at least 7 children signed up in order to provide care. Please plan to bring a sack lunch from home.
Children's Christmas Service
Wednesday, December 15th, the school children lead the Advent worship service at 9:00 AM and again at 6:30 PM. To create the optimal worship experience at both services, we encourage those who are able please attend the morning worship service. This will help alleviate overcrowding in the evening service. If overcrowding does occur in either service, worshipers may sit in the Ministry Center and view from the screens as it is live streamed. Those who plan on staying home will be able to watch the live stream broadcast through YouTube. What a blessing to be able to worship our newborn King!
Basketball Season Passes: Admission passes for the upcoming season may be purchased in the school office. There are three types of passes to choose from. There is the family pass for $30, the adult single pass for $15, and the student/senior pass for $5. Children five and under are free.

Basketball, Poms and Dance Parents: Please take a look at your child’s game schedule and sign up for two or more games to help out during the home games. Shift times are listed on the sign-up sheet. If you like to watch your child play, then please sign up to help out for games before or after they play that particular evening. Thank you. Mr. Lustila
