Here's What WE're learning IN The Loft This Month!

We're going bowling THIS sunday, November 4 from 10-Noon!!
Why bowling?? Well, we’re always looking for ways to get our students out of the building in order to give them different opportunities to connect and build friendships with each other. Our hope is that our kiddos would have a strong sense of community so that they might have friends for their journey of faith! Bowling is a fun way to do that!
We only ask for $8 to cover shoes and lanes. Snack will be provided. (We never want money to be a reason someone doesn't go on an event like this, so let me know if you need us to cover your kid.)
If your child can't make it, then we'd ask that they stay in the service with you as there will be no one covering 4th and 5th graders outside of the trip.

1 CORINTHIANS 12:12-27
One Body but Many Parts
What part do you think you can play?
TRY THIS: Read Luke 5:17-26. Share about the needs you see in your family, school, neighborhood, or even something you’ve heard about on the other side of the world. Is there one thing that makes you sad and moves you to want to do something? Talk about things your family could do together to meet that need. Pray for that situation and then choose a time for your family to work together to help meet that person’s need.
The Jesse Tree
Preparing for Advent!
(11:00-Noon in the Gym)
Join the entire church family this day to decorate the ornaments you can use during the advent season!
The Jesse tree helps us connect the custom of decorating Christmas trees to the events leading to Jesus’ birth. The Jesse tree is named from Isaiah 11:1: “A shoot shall come out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.” Jesse was the father of King David. We adorn a Jesse tree with illustrated ornaments that represent the people, prophesies, and events leading up to the birth of Jesus. The ornaments of the Jesse tree tell the story of God in the Old Testament, connecting the Advent season with the faithfulness of God across four thousand years of history.
