Searching for a Director of Children’s Discipleship

We need your help to find our new Director of Children’s Discipleship. Are you connected with an organization, like a parenting club or a PTO, where there might be someone who is looking for a job working with children? Maybe you know someone with a teaching degree who is looking for something outside of the classroom, or a stay-at-home mom or dad who is looking to go back to work. We invite you to send this link to our job posting to anyone who might be interested, share it on social media, and post it on community message boards for preschools, playgroups, and other organizations where you are a member. We trust that God will provide us with the right person, but we need your help to get the word out!

Scholarships for Summer Camps

Sometimes the early bird really DOES get the worm! The United Methodist Women want to encourage our children and youth at the church to participate in one of the summer camps at Chippewa or the Institute at Baker University. The camps themselves offer an early bird discount of $20 and the women will offer scholarships for anyone who fills out our camp form. The early bird registration deadline is May 1st. The scholarship is for youth or children who fills out the form by April 23. You can learn more about the camps by clicking here.

SO, you’ll want to look at your busy summer calendars and decide soon if one of the many fun weeks offered is something you want to do. Camp information and the scholarship form are available at the front desk and upstairs at the children’s table. We will take all of the forms turned in by April 23rd and divide up the funds available.

Turn in your scholarship forms to the front desk by April 23rd.

New Children’s Sunday School Check-In

We have a new check-in procedure for Children’s Sunday School. Check-in is now in the Celebration Room. Melissa Evans will be stationed at the wooden kiosk at the northeast corner of the Celebration Room, and kiddos will be checked in via computer. A nametag will be printed for each child, and the parent will receive a corresponding label. This parental label will contain unique identifying numbers for each of the children they will be picking up, and must be presented in each room to pick up your children.

We’ve moved the check-in to the main floor since we have children attending Sunday School on both floors of the Mulvane Building. We are grateful to the Children’s Renovation Team for this more secure and streamlined process that interfaces directly with ACS.
