Learning Center This Week


NIGHT OUT to RALLY FOR THE GALLEY:  The Newport Playhouse and Cabaret Restaurant is offering our church family a wonderful opportunity to raise additional funds for the Rally. Our own Audrey Singsen Perry, and her husband Jonathan, can offer us a night at the Playhouse. For every person that attends the evening event, a donation will be made to the Kitchen Fund. An evening at the Playhouse includes a full meal, the play itself, and a cabaret. It’s quite an evening!   About 25 people have signed up … if you would like to be a part of this outing, please call Megan asap, 401 439 8785.
CHILDREN’S WEEKEND IS FAST APPROACHING! (Can you believe it?) JUNE 3rd – 4th:
  • PIZZA PARTY: We will kick off the weekend (On Saturday, June 3rd) with our traditional pizza party, campfire, marshmallow roast (s’mores galore!), and glow sticks! The party begins at 5 PM and ends 8-9-ish.
  • SUNDAY WORSHIP: Our children’s weekend service is designed with the children in mind: children’s hymns, balloons, singing, acolyte awards, etc. This also happens to fall on Pentecost Sunday. Be sure to wear red!
  • ALL-FAMILY PICNIC: The CE Board will be asking for your help in making our Family Picnic fabulous. We will be needing salads and side dishes; grill meats, buns and dessert will be provided.
PICNIC HELP:   Don’t forget to sign up for our Family picnic – the CE Board needs your help in providing side dishes and salads. Please sign up with your favorite salad or side dish. The sign-up sheet is available on the opportunity table.
LOOKING FOR A GREAT BABYSITTER?   Our own Nursery caregiver, Becky Peckham, is looking for extra childcare opportunities during the summer months. Becky is an early childhood teacher, CPR certified, has her own transportation, and absolutely adores children! Give Becky a call at 965-2972 or visit her in the Nursery on Sunday morning.
LEARNING CENTER CLASSES will be on hiatus for the summer months. We will resume classes for the 2017-2018 year on Homecoming Sunday, September 10th.
SUMMER NURSERY: During the summer months the Nursery will be available for child care for infants through 2nd grade.
RELAY FOR LIFE: Our youth will once again be taking part in the Relay for Life, a cancer-awareness marathon walk and fundraiser on June 10th. The kids will be rotated on and off the track at Gaudet School and will nap at the church (or in the tent, weather permitting) as needed.
PEACE GARDEN: Now that we are experiencing warmer weather, we will resume our work on the Peace Garden. There is still much raking and clean-up to be done. Although this is a youth project, they need all the help they can get. Keep your eyes peeled for work dates.
SUMMER CAMP cannot take place this year due to our kitchen renovation.
LOOKING AHEAD: Here are some coming events you will surely want to add to your calendar:

June 3rd 4th      Children’s Weekend!!

June 10th      Relay for Life (Jr. High sleepover)

June 30th – July 5th       Youth@Synod, Baltimore, MD
