Being Mortal – October 23 at 7:00pm

Being Mortal post 3a

What are CROP Hunger Walks?

Neighbors walking together to raise funds to end hunger in their community and around the world. Together – with different ages, faiths and backgrounds – we raise money and awareness to end hunger, one step at a time. With 1,500 communities across the country walking each year, we are America’s Hunger Walk.

Last year, SFPC had 8 registered walkers (plus about 10-15 more from SPFC who didn’t register but walked to support us) who raised $745 for CROP Walk. This is a decrease from previous years, so the Mission Committee will be reaching out to all of the church to participate in the 2015 Walk for Hunger.

Here’s what we ask from YOU:

Sign up to walk. Set aside 2 hours of your time on November 5, from 2:00-4:00. The Walk will be held in Mitch Park. Registration is in the Narthex.   If you are not able to walk with us, please sign up to be a sponsor. Sign up in the Narthex or talk to Cindy Thomas.    Ask family, friends, or other church members to sponsor your walk. Sponsors can choose how much they wish to contribute.  Walkers: Collect your sponsor donations and place in your Registration Packet.   Set a goal for how much you wish to raise/donate for CROP Walk.

¨        $50 can begin a community garden for families with a hoe, shovel and seeds.

¨        $110 can give emergency food supplies for a family of 5 for one month.

¨        $300 can provide 15 bios and filters that help prevent the spread of disease.

¨        $525 can provide seven raised planting beds with nutrient-rich soil and gardening tools

KIDS Club begins September 13th

 

Kids Club for K thru 5th grade will begin every Wednesday afternoon starting September 13th from 4:30 until 6:45.

Bible Study – Bible study nurtures youth and children into intelligent, obedient, and biblically-informed discipleship. In grade level groups, each class uses a curriculum that is designed to meet their unique needs and learning capabilities.
Worship Skills – Worship is essential and central to the Christian community. In Worship Skills young people learn about worship and prepare to lead in the Sunday morning service of worship. This is typically done through singing, bell, or speaking choirs, drama, or movement and dance.
Recreation Play – Recreation Play allows  young people to experience great fun at the expense of no one else. They participate in games and active play, do crafts, or experience the hobby or special interest of a member of the congregation. When we reveal ourselves in play, we strengthen friendships, and when conflicts occur, we practice our Child of God theology.
Family Time – Family Time provides a joyous, intergenerational celebration of personhood over a shared meal as young people experience being part of the family of God. Young people are assigned to tables along with one or two adults who act as “table parents.” The group around the table becomes a family as they share meals together throughout the year. Food is served family style. Conversation is purposeful. Life is celebrated!IF YOU LIKE, PARENTS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS, PLEASE JOIN US FOR DINNER– Just call the Church Office at 341-3300 for a reservation.
