Join Children's Choir - Starting Wednesday, September 3
Our Children’s Choirs provide marvelous opportunities for growing in the Christian faith, developing musical skills and experiencing a wonderful sense of Christian community. And, of course, the children have a lot of fun while singing for the Lord! Rehearsals are every Wednesday night from 6:30-7:30pm starting on September 3 with a “Getting to Know You” meeting for parents and children. We welcome children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Sign up on the Connect portion of the bulletin on Sundays.
Back to School Blast & FX: Family Experience - Saturday, September 6
Do you wish your kids begged to come to church each week? Do you long to have a common language to speak to your kids about making the right choices in life? Is your family in need of a big dose of fun? Is you said yes, then come on out on Saturday, September 6. We will start together in the Wesley Center at 5pm for our FX: Family Experience. Using fun music, skits, video, and more your family will walk away talking about what happened. We will be looking at “Responsibility” and what in means in the lives of our kids. Following FX, we will all come outside to play together! Wear your swimsuit because we will be getting Wet and Wild! A jumbo water slide and more will be available. We will also have a good old fashioned cook out to close out our summer together. Bring a dessert or bottle of soda to share.

Sunday Connect Check-In Policy
Children and Family have incorporated a new security system for our Sunday Morning Connect Groups. Only parents and appointed guardians will be able to pick up a child. Beginning May 4, 2014, we will be using Check-in system for all Children's Sunday Morning Connect Groups.
To ensure the safety of your child, all children must be checked in by a parent or guardian. There are 3 convenient locations for checking in your children: The Flanders Counter, the Wesley Center, and near the doors of the Elrod Building. If you have not enrolled in the Check-in system please visit the Children and Family counter.
Tips for a successful Sunday Morning Drop-Off:
* All children 3rd grade and younger will receive stickers. Write your location on the child sticker and place on child, retain your pick-up sticker.
* If you lose your pick-up sticker, simply reprint at one of the Check-in stations.
* Leave your cell phone on vibrate, so we can contact you if your child needs you.
* Volunteers are here only until 12:15PM, please be prompt in picking your child up!
If there is another adult you wish to have added as a guardian of your child(ren), please email the Children and Family office at Childrens@clearlakemethodist.org.
