We’re going for it. Things are looking better.
Cases are down. Vaccinations are up. We had in-person worship yesterday!
Here is what 3rd Grade Bible Retreat and Presentation will look like.
Each child can attend one of four mini-retreats at Lyle Lodge.
We’ll have worship, Bible games, s’mores, and group bonding, all in a safer outdoor environment.
Third Grade Bible Retreat (choose one)
Saturday, April 17, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Saturday, April 17, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Saturday, April 24, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Saturday, April 24, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Lyle Lodge — Registration required by noon on April 14.
Drop off and pickup will be at Lyle Lodge. (I wish we could all just hop on a bus at the church, but we’re not quite there yet.)
We would also love to have a few chaperones to help lead the games! (No previous seminary experience needed.)
Sunday, April 25
9:30 am Gathering
11:00 am Sanctuary Service
We invite all third graders and their families to join us on April 25 during the 9:30 am Gathering or the 11:00 am Sanctuary Service for the special presentation of Bibles!
This may be in outdoor services on 5th Street. If we are in-person in the sanctuary, we will make sure that your family is able to reserve seating for the service of your choice.
Attendance at the retreat or presentation is not required for your third grader to receive their personal Bible. The presentation is incorporated into the service. A link for the registration will be available soon.
We know this isn’t optimal. (Little about the past year has been.) But getting to have some semblance of a retreat, plus presenting Bible to our Third Graders will be a wonderful chance to affirm that brighter days are coming!
