CHILDREN and FAMILY NEWS

During the 11 am service each Sunday in Advent, Mr. Jimmy will lead the
children into the library for the children’s sermon time. We’ll be
presenting a series of Godly Play Advent stories and will return to the
nave during the Gospel Acclamation. Parents and any others wanting to
experience Godly Play are encouraged to join us.

November 23. Hope to see ya’ll for our first family drive-in style movie.
We’ll have a showing of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at 6 pm in the
church parking lot. Bring a folding chair from home and a blanket to keep
warm. We’ll be selling candy and other movie style treats (benefiting our
youth fund). This is open the entire FELC family/community. And bring a
friend or two!

November 30. Hello Advent. We won’t be holding formation classes for the
kids, but all children (young, old, or somewhere in-between) are welcome to
meet Mr. Jimmy in the fellowship hall for games, jokes, and snacks. 9:45 am.
