SHINE: K – 5th grade Coordinators: Amy Daw, Beth Wickham
Presently, we are not meeting in person due to Covid. Our plan for 2022 is to meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:40pm – 6:45pm at the church. SHINE is a program designed to teach children about worship. This program is an extension to what was formerly called Children’s Choir. The children will be invited to participate in some of our Worship services sharing songs or other things they have learned. In addition to singing, children will experience playing instruments, acting out Bible stories, learning scripture, arts and crafts, working with puppets and hopefully have lots of fun while learning how God would have us love and serve. Until we begin meeting in person, we are delivering materials for children to use at home.
