6. Looking for a place to serve? We will begin a rotation of Youth serving in Children's Church in January!

  • This is a great way to serve the leaders and the kids who attend! There are two options for training this year. You will need to attend either on, or let Alisa know if you need to have another time set up for you.

  • Sunday, December 11th: Anna Hutchings, Sydney Beard
  • Sunday, December 18th: Hunter Landreth, Apsara Beard
  • Remember to let me know ahead of time if you can't serve on your day so we can find a replacement!

8. Parents, consider picking up a copy of Faith that Lasts: Raising Kids that Don't Leave the Church by Jon Nielson.

  • If you'd like a copy, you can purchase one at the church for the low cost of $5 per copy.
  • Copies are available on the book shelf in between the adult Sunday school rooms. First come first serve.

9. Parents, please consider helping us to fill out our Underground snack sign ups by clicking here

  • We are covered for the rest of the Fall, but there are still plenty of slots available for January through April
  • If you have forgotten your CCB login or password, you can click the link that says "Forgot username or password," or you can email Josh Huff and he will resend you your login information.
  • If you still can't get into CCB, but would like to sign up for snacks, just email me and I will figure out a way to get you on the list

10. Please turn in your 2016-2017 Medical Release Form! 

  • In case you hadn't heard the good news, these forms no longer need to be notarized! If you already turned one in, you don't need to do another one.
  • This form is mandatory for all youth under age 18 who wish to do any special events with our church from June 1st, 2016 through summer 2017.
  • This form must be filled out, signed, and returned to me!

In Christ,
