2019-2020 One-Stop Registration is Now Open!!
Greetings Grace Families! I am so thankful for all of you! I hope you are having a great summer and ready for the fall activities. The One-Stop registration link has been updated and we need every child to be registered for the 2019-2020 activity year which kicks off on Sunday, August 18, with Blessing of the Backpacks during the 10:30 a.m. service!
Child(ren) Register here!
We will be adjusting our faith formation strategy this year, investing in more hands-on activities and using less packaged curriculum material in response to leader feedback from prior years. We have been doing this throughout our summer months and this has worked out great. You can also expect your child(ren) to have dialogue regarding the scripture/topic that you hear in the service because we will be connecting our 9:15 a.m. children’s faith formation up with the worship schedule. This is going to be so exciting and I look forward to seeing what God will do!
We are happy to have our electronic check-in system up and running and I would like to ask ALL parents to ensure that they match up to their tags and check out with an adult leader each time we meet. To assist with this, we will have one check-out door and a leader will call your child(ren) to come and meet you at the door, so that we can streamline this process.
I am also looking for additional support for our children’s programming on Sunday morning. It would be extremely helpful if we establish a rotating team so that each person can serve once a month or less if possible. Serving more is also welcome! Adult volunteers register here and complete the Safe Gatherings Training and background check process.
I am sending many prayers for you and your family as you spend time together and enjoy the end of summer. Please take time to pray for each other, as we have others that need our prayers and support at this time. If you have specific prayer requests, please let me know. It would be my honor to pray for you! Contact Chamus Burnside-Savazzini, Director of Children’s Faith Formation, (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
