August is a time of change for families. Summer is over, school has started, and everyone is getting used to new rhythms.
At North Decatur Presbyterian Church, we begin our Sunday School, Children & Youth music program, and Youth groups after Labor Day weekend–this year, they begin on Sunday, September 10th.
In August, you are invited to plug in at several special events in anticipation of our September “homecoming”:
- Sunday, August 13th, after worship (11AM – noon): Parent Orientation and Church School Registration for All Children & Youth Programs (including music); all parents and children who are curious about our full range of programs should plan to stay after worship to meet CYF Director Rev. Dr. Erin Reed Cooper. While parents learn about the programs in the Fellowship Hall, children (preK – 5th grade) and youth (6th – 12th grade) will meet Sunday School teachers and Music Director Huu Mai to learn about Children’s Choir and Youth Band.
- Sunday, August 20th, after worship (11AM – noon): All-Church Volunteer Fair (and Cookie Bake-off); NDPC’s many ministries and community outreach programs will have representatives on hand to introduce you to the dozens of volunteer opportunities through the church; how will you choose to serve?
- Sunday, August 27th, 11AM – 1PM: Spruce Up the Church; wear your work clothes to church because we’ll stay afterward to clean, paint, and polish; there will be something for all ages and abilities to do!
- Sunday, September 10th: Homecoming Sunday & Potluck Lunch; Early Worship resumes at 8:45AM, Church School Launch for All Ages at 9:45AM, Worship at 11AM, Pot-Luck Lunch to follow.
