Learning Center This Week


THANK YOU!  to everyone who made this past weekend possibleWe had a blast.  Twenty-eight people came for the pizza party and campfire; five people stayed ALL NIGHT for the camp out; and EVERYONE came to the picnic.  Many thanks to Pastor Jill for presiding over worship; Peter Davis, Melissa Woolverton and Ellen Davis for the beautiful music; the CE Board for the wonderful picnic; the “grillers” for the delicious burgers and dogs; and to all of you who contributed to the buffet table at the picnic.  The food was amazing!


OLD TESTAMENT lessons were a hit this winter and we will revisit them in the 2018-2019 church school year.  We finished our spring study with Joshua, and will resume with the book of Judges in January.


LEARNING CENTER classes are on summer hiatus until Homecoming Sunday, September 9th.  The Nursery will be open for children in 2nd grade and younger every Sunday morning. Also, if you have an older child that can’t seem to sit through worship, Miss Megan is happy to take him/her into the Learning Center for games, art, and movies.


ACOLYTES are needed for the coming school year (September ’18).  Please talk to your children about their interest in this most important responsibility.  We usually ask for children in 3rd grade and older, but there is also the matter of height (keep that in mind).


CONFIRMATION CANDIDATES will be working through the summer on their studies and requirements.
We’re anticipating a fall celebration of the Rite of Confirmation.


PLEASE KEEP all the children in your prayers over the summer months.  They are so precious to all of us.


FREE TV:  The Learning Center is in possession of two TVs that need new homes.  These TVs are no longer needed in any of the classrooms.  If you are interested, or you have information on how one disposes of perfectly good TVs, please contact Miss Megan


VACATION:  Miss Megan will take some vacation time June 10th – 16th.


OBERAMMERGAU 2020:  It’s not too early to start thinking about attending the Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany in 2020 (United’s 325th anniversary).  Presented by the townspeople of this little town, the play has been presented every ten years since 1634.  Oberammergau is a tidy little village nestled in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps.   What a great way to celebrate our 325th year!
