Fall is in the air!

I'm loving this cooler weather! Aren't you? Fall is in the air. Life Groups are off to a good start. We enjoy ours on Friday nights. Linda Trapp is doing an excellent job teaching Revelation to the LTC kids. The rotation classes are going smoothly.

Just in case you didn't know, October brings a busy month for our Children and Family Ministry. Firefighter Sunday is a couple of weeks away. The elementary kids will be putting together a craft at the Kid's For Christ event in a couple of weeks to give to the firefighters. At the same Kids For Christ event, I'm hoping to have some special people come talk to the kids about safety issues, being bullied, and how to respond positively.

The end of this month is the kids favorite holiday (besides Christmas). We have Sunday evening October 31st blocked off on our calendar to have a Trunk or Treat at the church building. While it will be a lower key event than some previous Fall Festivals, it will be a "safe place" for your children to trick or treat and give us adults a much needed time to eat candy and gab, which is some of ours favorite activities!

The Parent Link newsletter will have the final details and calendar. It will be available at the Family Ministry Kiosk on Wednesday night.

BTW, don't forget those cheap dinners at KWCOC on Wednesday nights. My kitchen has a sign in it that says, "Keep the Kitchen Clean. Eat Out". KWCOC makes it possible to avoid that least favorite task of cooking and doing dishes while having fun with friends all for one low, low price. And ... the best deal of all, your kids are ready for Bible Class when dinner is over!
