SUNDAY MORNING YOUTH PROGRAMS

 

* Sunday morning classes are held for youth Kindergarten through the 8th grade.

* Nursery care is available throughout the morning

"Kids of the Kingdom"  [Elementary K - 4] Kids of the Kingdom is SJPC’s children’s program during worship services.  After the anthem elementary aged kids head to class to pray, worship and learn together.  We provide Christ centered teaching in a way that helps kids build foundations of faith as they begin to understand “the Big God Story” and how they are a part of much larger community of faith of past, present and future believers. Please join us for this fun, creative, God-centered class! Please note for the summer: KOK will resume again in the fall. The nursery will be open every Sunday. Young school age children (K-2nd) may either stay in the sanctuary with their families or join in the nursery for a Bible story and craft.  

"The Mix"  [5th - 8th grade] The Mix meets after the anthem during worship in the downstairs youth room. We will be starting up classes again in the fall. Enjoy your summer and be safe! Please call the church office if you have any questions.   

* High school aged youth are encouraged to worship with their families in the service, however, the Mix will tailor the Sunday School Lesson for all those who choose to be involved. 

                                                   


 

TREASURE HOUSE COLLECTION 

 

 

             

 

August is canned veggies month for Treasure House. Typically people associate canned vegetables with fewer nutrients, however, fresh and canned vegetables are almost the same in nutritional value! Fresh vegetables are the most nutricious when they are picked, and they lose the nutrition as they become old and rotten.  Canned vegetables, although occasionally precooked and processed, hold their nutitional value for year.  For those kids that turn their nose up to veggies, canned vegetables are easy to throw into the food processer and mix into smoothies, sauces and other gravies. Please remember to put a few extra canned veggies into your shopping cart this month and place them in the grey tub in the Narthex!  

Households with children are the largest demographic group accessing emergency food boxes (EFB). The average number of EFB's distributed monthly in Clark County has increased from 9,500 to 10,100 and 39% of those receiving hunger relief from this source are children.
