Children’s ministry is looking forward to resuming programming during both the 9:00 and 10:30 services as we head into September.
If you haven’t been with us in a while or just need the reminder here is some information related to classrooms and age groups and safety precautions for our Nursery and Sunday school programs
- Babies and Toddlers 6 weeks – 3 years: Nursery Care in rooms 116-117 throughout the entire service.
- PreK – Kindergarten: Sunday school in Room 115
- 1st – 3rd Grade: Sunday school in Room 202
- 4th – 6th Grade: Sunday school in Room 201
Kids in PreK through 6th grade meet their teacher in the Narthex. After the service, parents pick up their children from the assigned classrooms.
Children and teachers in all Sunday school classes will be required to wear masks and regularly sanitize or wash their hands regardless of vaccination status. We will keep a minimum of three feet of space between each student. As the weather cools we will make every effort to bring our lessons outside when we can. We ask that you do not bring your child to church, Sunday school, or the nursery if they show any symptoms of Covid-19 or they have been recently exposed to Covid-19. If you have any questions or concerns about our Covid-19 protocols please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to presenting our third graders with bibles on Bible Sunday, September 19. If you would like your child (in third grade or older if they have not yet received a Bible) to be presented with a Bible as part of the Bible Sunday service, please email Emily@dayspring-umc.org with your child’s name and which service you plan to attend. If you would like your child to be presented with a Bible but aren’t quite ready for the in-person experience, email me and we can figure something out either online or a small group meet up.
We are looking forward to bringing together our Dayspring families for a movie night on the patio on September 11. We will open the event at 6:30 so you can get set up and the movie will begin at 7:00. There will be snacks, sno-cones, and some other fun activities. This event is free and open to anyone. We will be watching Luca and sharing in a fun, safe evening together.
Finally, WE NEED SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS!!! If you are inclined to help at either service even if it is just one or twice every other month, we would love your help. There is no preparation involved everything you need for your lessons will be in the classroom you simply need to show up and spend an hour exploring a cool story with some awesome kids! Please email me if you are interested or would like more information!! Masking is required of all Sunday school teachers regardless of vaccination status.
