Last night was the last night at the Seminary!  I know the children are excited to be in their new surroundings because when I asked them if they remembered any news I gave them last week, it was the first thing they said.  So if you happen to start driving to the Seminary next Wednesday, I am assured that your children will tell you that you are going the wrong way!  We will be doing some light housecleaning this coming Saturday.  We also need to get a start at putting together the Nursery, which will mean some cleaning of toys.  If you have a few hours beginning at 8am, please join us.  You will get the first opportunity to see our new home! 

We introduced the 10 commandment song last night.  It won't be long before you will hear them singing or humming the tune at home.  I pray you will take this opportunity to teach the commandments to your children.  We can do it for you, but it is proven that if the teaching is done by you and reinforced by the church, it will leave a much greater impact on their lives.  If you did not get a copy of the handout resource for teaching the commandments, they will be available at the check-in table.

1ST COMMUNION REMINDER:  The first instruction class for 1st communion will be Wed., February 4.  This session is for any 4th or 5th grade student upon parental discretion.  If you have a younger child who you feel is ready, or an older child who has not received 1st communion yet, please speak with Pastor Rich.  It is required that a parent(s), or guardian, be at the session with the student as they will receive homework to complete before the last instruction session on February 25.  The 1st Communion Celebration will be held on Sunday, March 1, 2015.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for the Go4Gold Family event to be held on Friday evening, February 27th, from 6-8pm.  There will be a sign-up on the Sunday connection card coming soon!

See you soon at our New Home!
