ChildrensTableSmall200nu

All children are invited to gather at the Children’s Table following the anthem for a quiet activity to help them engage in and experience the gospel message. Along with a craft activity they will find Children’s Bulletins in two different developmental levels containing activities relating to the day. This Sunday, January 7, at the Children’s Table create your very own star as we remember the magi and the special star that they followed to Jesus. For more information about the Children’s Table, contact Teri Skakum, Child and Family Coordinator, at teri@165.227.34.127.

Thank you Foodfare!

Parking is available in the Foodfare lot across from the church, on Sundays UNTIL 1 pm.

The deadline for bulletin submissions is Wednesday at noon.
