We are collecting candy, chocolates, and other Easter Egg stuffables in front of the fellowship hall. Please bring a bag or two of Easter Egg Stuffables over the next week or so. We will be collecting until 1 week before Easter, March 20th.
Mark your calendar, Friday, March 4, we are having a very unique (then again aren’t they all) PARENT NIGHT OUT. We are doing our very own Drive-in Theater. Kids will make their own cars, and then will head out in the parking lot to watch a movie. A concession stand will be available, but the kid’s won’t need money for it.
Same start time as usual — 6:00 p.m., but we going to extend to 8:30 p.m. to allow time for the movie.
Same cost — None! Woohoo!
Same invite — All age kids are welcome. Nursery provided. Youth can participate and help as volunteers.
In place of the regular Youth Group and Bible Drill, we will be gathering at the Gilliland’s home @ 2116 Pine St. Texarkana, TX. We will gather from 5pm and stay until the end of the game! Or whenever your first child falls asleep, whichever comes first. Please bring a food or drink to share! The whole family is invited to come! It would be helpful to know numbers, so if you plan to be there so please let Aimee know.
February 14th: Happy Valentine’s Day!
For Valentine’s Day we are giving you a few hours to be the loving couple when you got married. Drop your kids off at Zoohaa Adventure Zone (1801 N Robison Rd, Texarkana, TX) at 3:30pm. Please bring $25+money for snacks if desired.
We will transport your children to church at 6pm where we will have a Click & Youth Valentine Party.
Pick up is at 8pm.
February 15th: Señorita Fiesta
Girls Day In was such a success we are having another one! Señorita Fiesta was designed by some of the girls of our church! There will be no meal but we will have snacks to munch on throughout.
They will be learning about Ruth and the main event will be a ‘Tom Boy Fashion Show’ and a ‘Talent Show’
They are invited to dress as anything they would like but the girls who planned this wanted to dress as boys. Also, your girls have talents and if they would like to share them, they are invited to come show it to us! Be it an instrument, a dance, a magic trick, a gymnastics act, a poem, or even a dish that they prepared at home to share!
February 19th: Bros Night In
For the past few months the boys have been asking for a time to themselves around the church and I finally caved! The boys will be having their very own Bros Night In. The Older Youth Bros and the Younger Click Bros will be having fun together.
Scheduled is a Bible Study on being Godly Men, a Nerf Gun War, Flag Football, and a Ping Pong Tournament to name a few.
It will be mainly chaperoned by Michael Gilliland.
Sundays through LENT
Also, throughout Lent, your children are invited to join in coloring a large coloring sheet cooperatively such as one below that will become Sacred Art for us to display in the Narthex. I have been contemplating different ways that we can have the Sunday Worship be more worshipful for the kids and this is one of the ways that I would like to experiment with the kids. Thank you for printing these for us Texarkana Digital Press.
I know it won’t be a very smooth transition at first, so please bear with us as we do this. The first Sunday (February 14th), we will be taking them into the sound room right before the sermon, and next week it will likely look a little different.
Hey Parents and Grandparents:
Dec. 4th will be our next parent’s night out. We’ve got a fun slate of Christmas activities planned.
Eat before you come, but we will have a snack. Children of all ages are welcome. We’ll have a nursery for the little ones and High School kids can be helpers.
Please let us know if you’ll be coming by Dec. 1, so that we have plenty of supplies, snacks, etc. Call the church office or click here to send me a message that you’re coming.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Rev. John Arnold
