What’s Happening in Children’s Ministries (Feb 17, 2019)

Happy Tuesday! I hope all of you are looking forward to the long holiday weekend. Please remember that there is no Sunday School, Communion Classes or Children’s Chapel this Sunday as we are giving our volunteers a much needed break before we head into Lent! But, there is still church at the regular times and Kid’s Club is open, so come on out to church on Sunday!

Lots of church news to share…

St. Paul’s Directory Family Photos
We need your family in the photo directory! If you missed our photo sessions last fall, you still have an opportunity to have your photo taken and to be a part of the St. Paul’s Photo Directory. The signup is available online https://booknow.appointment-plus.com/yclxe0ge/. The dates of the portrait sessions will be February 18th and February 19th. These sessions will take place in the chapel. Each family/person that sits for a photo will receive a free 8×10 from Lifetouch. If you have any questions or would like to help with this fun exciting event, please contact Jill Cole at jillco0405@gmail.com.
