Eric has created a survey to help us get information on your child participating. You can fill out a paper copy in the packet or go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q5WMZ98 to fill it out. Eric will get that information and contact you if he has any questions. He will use the survey results to know which kids would like to audition for specific parts in the musical.
If you could mark your calendars now for Sunday, December 10th for our Christmas Musical performance. Also, December 9th, will be our dress rehearsal and we would love for you to mark this on your calendars now.
For all of our volunteers in children’s ministry, including nursery, toddlers, PreK, and Elementary- we have one training per year. We would really love it if you could make it! This year, we’re trying 2 different dates to make it possible for everyone to attend at least one of them. They will be Sunday, September 24 at 8 am and Wednesday, September 27 at 6 pm. There should be yummy food at both of these meeting times.
There is a Hayride coming up on October 11, from 6:30-8:30pm. It will be at Brian and Nichole Bash’s home. Parents and younger siblings are welcome! Please RSVP to Tracy so we know how many smore supplies to get!
Revival is always a special time for our church to connect with God. I challenge you to make as many of the services as you can. October 15-18 This year’s speaker is Jeremiah Bolich and he’s one of my family’s favorites! There is dinner in the gym on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. We always do some special theme nights for kids on Sunday and Wednesday of Revival. These fun nights for kids: Sunday, October 15, is Hawaiian Night and Wednesday, October 18, is Farm night with Joy Morse! :) The other two nights (Mon and Tues) are family services and I enjoy getting to sit with my kids during those.
NIGHT OF WORSHIP
A few parents have asked about a time when they can worship together with their children. This is an evening set up for everyone to worship together and bring your friends, your family, and definitely your kids! The date is set for Sunday night, October 29.
Upward Registration is now open! Early Registration ends October 31! Evaluations areNovember 13-15! I love Upward! :) All registration and info is at www.findlayupward.org.
I forgot to tell you in my email of important info yesterday, that the Power Plant kiddos are also singing on Grandparent's Day October 1. I love the song "Sparrows" by Jason Gray and love the message. The words to the song are powerful. I love the line, "You may feel alone, but you're not on our own." I asked Becky Burgard if she would work on sign language to go with this song, and she is so sweet and has agreed to help us with sign language for this song. However, the motions are a little bit tricky for us to get on Sunday morning in Power Plant. So, I had Olivia Rook video tape Becky doing the motions, and I'm sending you the YouTube link. If you could have your kiddo(s) try to be more familiar with this, that would be great and help us on Sunday Mornings!

Mark your calendars for October 1, Grandparents Day! Kids will be singing in both services!! If you could have your kiddos there on Sunday in the Power Plant at 9:10 am for first service and 10:40 am for second service, that will give us a couple minutes to run through the song real quick before we go over the sanctuary. (If you have a kiddo in kinder choir Susan would like them there at 8:45 in the sanctuary.) Also, there will be a couple of fun photo opportunities for familes in the foyer and near the check-in desk.
If you have any questions, please let me know! Call, text, or email me.
