CHILDREN’S ACTIVITY BAGS for church time for up to age 10 are labeled with your child’s name and hanging at the coat rack in the foyer. The kids’ bulletins are designed more for older children who read and can follow along with the morning’s sermon but any effort your child makes-placing the sticker, coloring or working on an activity page will earn them rings toward their six prize Adventure Pal Pins. Please return the bag to the hooks following the service to be checked each week. Contact the office with any questions.
