Parents, this Sunday, August 31, is your last chance to pre-register your children for Sunday classes. What’s this about, you ask? We are switching our check-in system for all children’s classes to The City. That requires you to enter your kids’ names and choose their classes. The more that can get done ahead of time, the better for all. Please visit our new check-in area in the lower level on Sunday to provide this information. Rich Shipe will be there to walk you through it.
September 7th is the first Sunday for our new worship hours AND it’s our traditional “promotion” Sunday, when your kids may or may not be moving up a grade or class. So pre-registration also helps make these decisions prior to your arrival next week. Your assistance with this will eliminate wrong decisions and long lines for everyone on September 7.
Finally, as a reminder, if your children will be attending our classes, parents are asked to sign up to serve. A sign-up sheet for that is available in the check-in room.

Prayer & Praise
We praise God for the newest babies in our church family. Pray for these parents as they dedicate themselves today to raise their children in Christ-centered families: Dustin & Christa Berger, Jon & Evie Farris, Chris & Amy George, Dan & Katie Haecker, Josh & Bethany Johns, and Karl & Giovanna Phenix.
Continuing with our “Traveling Light” summer sermon series, Pastor Jack shared the historical importance and value of God’s Word. You can hear his message online. The series ends this Sunday, August 31 with the topic of “Christ’s Church”.
