Good afternoon!

I hope you are enjoying this great weather we have been having this week.  I am so excited to announce the upcoming ground breaking on the Kathleen Baskin Ball Memorial Garden which will take place on Sunday, April 22nd immediately following the 11am service. Construction will begin very soon after and this garden will be constructed in the courtyard area that many of our families love to play on in the afternoons after school.  Please keep children away from this area during the construction process.  It will be beautiful once it is finished.  Thank you so much for your attention on this matter J

Our bible verse for the month of April is “Noah listened and obeyed God.” Genesis 6:22.  We will be studying the story of Noah and the ark and celebrate all the animals God has created.  The shape of the month is diamond and the color is green.  The letters of the weeks are M, N, W, and X.  The children have also been practicing their favorite songs they have been singing throughout the year in music class.  Make sure you have on your calendar the upcoming Spring Program/Open House on Monday, May 7th at 6:30pm in the Suncreek UMC sanctuary.  All of the students of Suncreek Kids will be singing in this program so please plan to attend.  We will also be having the program filmed and you will have the opportunity to purchase a DVD of the program.  More details to come!
