Children’s Sunday School
October 17, 2021

We have in-person Sunday School each week at 9:45. We are so excited to be back in person to learn about Jesus together! We hope you join us.



Fall Festival/Trunk or Treat
October 31
12:00-2:00pm in the Courtyard and Parking Lot
Get a head-start on Halloween. Come for church on Sunday, October 31 and stay for the Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat. Enjoy a light lunch and then have fun playing a variety of trunk-or-treat games. The grown-ups will have fun talking to each other and trying to figure out how to get their kids to give them the "good" candy.

Costumes are encouraged, but not necessary. Invite friends to join you and it will be even more fun!

Contact Susan Hale (susanh@fumcallen.org) or Trish Morehead (trishm@fumcallen.org) if you have any questions.
Fall Festival/Trunk or Treat
Help Needed
October 31
12:00-2:00pm in the Courtyard and Parking Lot
The Children's Ministry is in need of help with this year's Fall Festival.
Here are a few of the ways you can participate:
-Host a trunk (check with Trish and Susan for ideas, if needed)
-Help prep food on Sunday morning
-Help serve food
-Donate candy (the bin is in the Labyrinth)

Contact Susan Hale (susanh@fumcallen.org) or Trish Morehead (trishm@fumcallen.org) if you would like to volunteer or if you have any questions.
Sunday school is going strong! We hope every child will join us from 9:45am-10:45am on Sunday mornings.

Nursery and preschool Sunday school classes meet on the nursery hall.

Children in kindergarten through Confirmation are dropped off in the Large Group Area.

On Deck students and Confirmands are dismissed from their rooms to meet you.

Children in kindergarten through 4th grade need to be picked up in the children's area.
Last week we talked about the Local Church. We also discussed ways we can participate in the life of the church, particularly by helping with the Fall Festival.

This week the students will prepare a Scripture presentation for Children's Ministry Sunday. They will also have the chance to eat a donut with their faith partners.
Worship Readiness

Last week the kiddos stayed in the sanctuary through Children's Time. They did a very good job. They get better every week! We returned to our room, listened to the Scripture being read to us, recreated the order of worship on our whiteboard, and, of course, had a snack.

We will continue to increase the amount of time we spend in worship so that we are ready to stay in the sanctuary for the entire worship service by the time our class finishes on November 21.
The Children's Creative Playday school year has begun. Please pray for the students, teachers and parents.
Children's Creative Playday is now enrolling for 2021-2022 school year. There are limited spots still available for children 18 months to 6 years old.

If you are looking for a safe place for your child to play, to be in community with loving adults and other children, and to learn socially as well as academically, contact Trish Morehead at trishm@fumcallen.org or 972-396-7575 to schedule a tour.
