November 13, Family Craft Day

As part of our outreach to the larger community, the Christian Education Team will be sponsoring a Family Craft Day on Saturday, November 13th from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. We are in need of helpers to welcome the families and to work with the children. The Thanksgiving-themed crafts will be simple (no experience necessary), and it will be a good way to get to know some of the younger families in the area. Please talk to Lori or Sarah, or call the church office, if you’re interested in being a part of this fun event.
