Family Service Project / Christmas Homeless Care Kits
Join KidzMin after the December 6 10AM and 12PM services for a family friendly service project. We are currently collecting items to make Christmas Homeless Care Kits. After the services we will have tables setup in the KidzMin hallway for your family to assemble bags and write encouraging notes (all while keeping socially distant safe).
However, in order to accomplish this, we need your help gathering the following items (Click here to see the list). Donation bins will be located at the KidzMin Welcome Desk. We hope as many PCCers will join us meet this great need within our community. Questions? Please contact Amanda Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Child Dedications - January 31
The Bible tells us that children are gifts to prepare (and dedicate) as arrows for the Lord’s service. Our children belong first and foremost to their loving Creator who has designated us as temporary stewards. Furthermore, we as the church body are called to partner with all the families in our congregation to own the discipleship of each child. In essence, both of these (parental stewardship and communal partnership) are accomplished in public dedication.
If you would like to publicly dedicate your child to the Lord on Sunday, January 31, please let us know. All parents wishing to dedicate their children need to meet with a ministry leader to discuss the Child Dedication Study Sheet
prior to the service. If you have any questions, please email Edward Murray
Thank you all for your continued service and support of KidzMin. Please let us know if there is anything you need from us!
