Upcoming Painted Hills Events
It's gardening Sunday! Please make sure the kids have a sweater and closed toe shoes. We will observe if the seeds we planted last month, have sprouted!
*BELLS ANNOUNCEMENT- If your child is a part of the Bell's Group, there will be practices starting at 9:30am on Dec. 17th and 24th. Please make sure they are there at that time so they will be ready for the performance during the service on both of those days as well.
-Remind your child to bring their change for the Heifer project gift they'd like to buy as a class. Our goal is buy a gift between $10-20.
-The youth are always encouraged to bring friends with them to Sunday school or youth events. When your child invites a friend to church, he/she and their friend will be rewarded!
A list is being put together of people who are connected to the church and who are either hurting, grieving, or not able to leave their homes often. Please join us in helping lift their spirits! This is an event for the whole family! On December 17th, we will meet at the church at 2:45pm and carpool to the different locations by following a map that will have all destinations labeled. There will be a song book to refer to and Don East is bringing his keyboard! At about 5:30 we will be back to the church for hot beverages and snacks.
*Parents: we still need a couple dozen cookies! Can you donate? Please let Bethany know!
**Please let Bethany know if your family can attend! We need a solid group of voices!
Upcoming youth events:
*December 17th, 2:45pm-6pm- Caroling to those home-bound and/or hurting
Parents and youth, please know that you can contact me anytime. I am a resource for the whole family!
