Nursery and Church School
This Sunday is registration Sunday. There will be refreshments set-up in the Church School hallway for teachers, children, and all parents (Nursery through 6th grade). Please find on-line registration HERE, or come and register in-person. We will gather for a very brief presentation and explanation of this years’ plan for registering and supporting the start-up of our programs – Nursery through 6th grade. It is important to have everyone there to participate and to ensure a smooth beginning. Thank you!
Frank Van Atta
We welcome Frank Van Atta, our new Music Director, to St Michael’s Church this Sunday! We are excited to have him join our community and to add his gifts of music and spirit to our worship life! Please welcome Frank, help him to feel at home here, and know he is excited to be here.
Emily Norton, sister to Sasha and daughter of Allison and Greg, will receive the sacrament of Holy Baptism during the service. Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church, and celebrates God’s promise of abundant life.
Blessing of the Book Bags
Next Sunday, September 16 at the end of announcements, we will have a BLESSING OF THE BOOK BAGS for those young folks (or not-so-young) who carry their lives around with them at school in their book bag, backpack or briefcase. Bring yours in for a blessing at Church, and have a great year!
Confirmation Class Parents Meeting
After church on Sunday, September 16 we will have a Confirmation Class Meeting for the parents of all 7th and 8th graders who wish to be part of Confirmation Class. It is not required that one get Confirmed in order to take the class: this ideally is a process of discernment engaged in actively by children with their parents, and Confirmation Class can be a great help here. We will review the curriculum for this year, and discuss some changes we wish to make beginning in the fall of 2013. Parents of rising sixth and seventh graders will want to be aware of this conversation, so any interested parents please join us at 11:30 in the lower parish hall! Our first Confirmation Class will be the following Sunday, September 23, from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. in the lower parish hall.
