EASTER THANK YOU'S The Kids Ministry staff and Committee are so grateful we had the opportunity to host our Easter Family Event in the Great Hall and Parlor this year. It was a wonderful celebration as a church family to see all the children and their parents going from station to station talking about Jesus rising from the grave. We want to thank Howard and church leadership for saying YES to this crazy idea of us using the main church entry area on Easter morning. Also, we are so grateful to Dan Carter and the Parlor Sunday School class who were willing to move their class into the sanctuary for us. And we really appreciate Doyle, Hector, Janie and Linda for all of their help in set up and clean up after the event. You are humble leaders in this special church family! A BIG thank you to the many volunteers who came on Thursday and Saturday to set up, and those who came on Sunday to cover all the areas: greeting, welcome table, 8 stations, a photo booth, a café and final station of the big surprise celebration with streamers and LOTS of helium balloons. Yes, in the Parlor! JESUS IS ALIVE! ​ This year at our Rise Up with Jesus! Easter Family Event, families explored the following stations, collecting puzzle pieces at each station. They received the final piece at the climactic ending in the Parlor. Kim Talley led the final station and everyone celebrated that JESUS IS ALIVE!
