Pastor Jen's Corner:

Pastor Jen, Training Depot's Chaplain, has found a great resource which walks your family through the Advent season as we prepare for Christmas! Advent is a time of anticipation, expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Watch the video below as Pastor Jen introduces Advent and this awesome resource. To get started on this week's Advent readings with your family click here to download!

Below is a devotional link that you can click on to share Jesus with your family.
I pray this Family DEVO is a blessing to you and your children. Each devotional includes activities, a blessing to speak over your children and a Take the Lead segment where you can introduce them to the lesson that will be shared at our church this coming Sunday.

Family devotional link for this week is: https://youtu.be/ptMZvP4gROg

We'd love to have you join us if you do not already have a church home. If you do have your own church home, this is still a devotional that you can enjoy together as a family. Our church has age appropriate Children's Church for children ages 3 years old thru Pre-K called 'Treehouse' and 'Clubhouse' is for children ages Kindergarten thru 6th grade. There is also a nursery provided for children 2 years old and younger.

Christmas Drive Thru Nativity at FW 1st: Your family is invited to join us this weekend for our annual drive thru Nativity on Friday thru Sunday evenings, Dec. 3-5 from 6:30-9pm. Remain in your car as a narrated CD guides you thru live scenes telling the story of Jesus.

Angel Tree: Each year we put together an Angel Tree benefitting House of Hope's Share the Love holiday assistance program. Our Angel Tree is set up in the front main hallway. Be sure to stop by and select an angel to bless this Christmas season. Please bring all gifts unwrapped and place them in the large boxes near the tree. Gifts must be turned in by Wednesday, December 15.

May the Lord bless you as you share your Fatih@Home! We pray you each have a Merry Christmas Season as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior!

Parent Info:

*REFERRAL INCENTIVE: Training Depot is growing! It is our desire to continue to thrive and prosper. Our mission is to minister to as many in our community as possible; therefore, we have set goals to continue to grow as a ministry. We are seeking to partner with our current parents to help increase our STAFF as we prepare for the 2nd Semester of this school year and the upcoming summer months. We are implementing a Referral Incentive that will be available through the end of March. Any current family that refers a potential STAFF member to Training Depot and that person is hired and decides to sign on as a teacher with us, you are eligible for this program thru the end of March. Please note the new teacher needs to include your name as a referral at the time their employment begins. After they have been hired and completed their initial first two weeks of training, you will receive $100 tuition credit towards your weekly tuition. After they have completed their first 3 months of employment and are an employee in good standing, you will receive TWO FREE weeks of tuition.  

*BE THE LIGHT Spirit Shirts: We had several parents asking for 'Be the Light' Spirit shirts after the order was received. We currently have these sizes: three 3T, one 4T, and 10 youth small are available for purchase in the Training Depot office for $12 each. Come pick up a SPIRIT shirt for your child! Usually the last Thursday of the month is our Schoolwide SPIRIT day then we wear our spirit shirts and bring canned food for House of Hope.

*Celebrating our Teachers at Christmas: I wanted to make sure that each of you know about our PURPLE Teacher Binder. This is located on the bottom shelf of the credenza outside the Training Depot office. It contains all of our Teacher's Favorite Things! These are divided into classes with small tabs showing each section to find your child's class. You are welcome to just pull out a sheet with your child's teacher's name on it or snap a picture of it. Thanks for helping us show our teachers how special they are to us!!

*NEW TD Bookkeeper: Our new Training Depot Bookkeeper is Deanna Canelos. You can reach her via email at tdbookkeeper@fwfnca.org or via phone at 817.297.7003 ext.111. We are excited to have her with us and she will be happy to help you with anything regarding the financial side of Training Depot.

*Weekly Tuition Payments: Tuition payments are due each Friday prior to the upcoming week's attendance. You are welcome to pay on Monday of each week but your payment must be received by Monday at 6pm in order to avoid a late charge of $25! Please make sure that your payment is not made a week late. If you would like your tuition to be made through auto draft payments, you may pick up an Auto Draft Form in the TD office. Thanks for your cooperation with this!

*BREAKFAST: Just a reminder that breakfast is over at 7:30am each morning. If your child arrives at 7:30 or after, they'll have to wait until 9am snack to eat their breakfast.
