As parents, we see children grow every day. But, this time of year, we particularly notice the way the world grows around us! This Sunday, Lambs (ages 0-3) will experience seed-planting, bee-buzzing, wild flower fun in a faithful way, meeting for the last time until Story, Song & Snack begins on June 7. Older children (preschool-GR 5) will work with Melissa to prepare a special celebration for our teachers, at the 11:00 am worship service on May 17. Youth (middle school and high school) will also be preparing for May 17 events.
You are invited to ECLC's first ever Empty Bowls~Full Hearts event on Sunday, May 17. Confirmation youth in grades 6-8 will be serving soup & bread, following the 11 am worship service. A silent auction, selling the glazed bowls made by ECLC kids youth & families, will raise money to be given to our ministry partner's food shelf at Community Emergency Service. Please contact Kelly to help. Thank you!
