Due to our Safe Sanctuary Policy we ask that parents please do not drop students off for C.E. prior to 9:15 if you are unable to supervise them until C.E. personnel are available. We do not want children unsupervised, and often many of the C.E. team members are still attending church service at 9:00. We do make every attempt to arrive in C.E. as soon as possible, but want to be safe. Thanks for your cooperation with this.
Also, upon pick up, please meet your students at their breakout rooms. Again for safety, without prior permission, we will not allow students to leave C.E. without an adult or older sibling. If you have questions or concerns regarding these policies, please contact Renee Thomas.
We require a student participating in Christian Ed. to be registered. You can either pick up a registration form at the church or click on this Registration Link. This link will open the Registration Form in PDF format. You can print out the Registration form by right clicking on it once the file has loaded and choose the print file from the pull-down menu. Then fill out the form and drop it off at the church or return it during C.E. time on Sunday mornings.

Christian Education News
We have been very busy in Christian Ed! We just finished our “Journey to Mars” theme and will be doing a “Pumpkin Pie” lesson then believe it or not, we will start our Christmas curriculum “The Star.” We will be sending home Christmas songs very soon for students to practice.
The classes had an amazing time decorating the round bales for Halloween Hoopla. They all did a great job and looked fabulous! We took pictures of the day and they can be viewed in the slideshow for Halloween Hoopla on the Recent Events page.
Thank you to everyone who helped, decorated their trunk or participated in the events … It was a huge success! We had over 100 students go through for trunk or treating and 25 decorated vehicles. It was great to see so many new faces having such a great time. We had 5 winners for the trunk decorating. They were Rob and Karla Rands for the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang theme, Ryan and Holly Rands for the Wreck it Ralph theme, Jackie Wehrle for the Winter theme, Rosemary Collins for the Halloween theme and Chuck and Barb Weist for the Halloween and Older Couple theme (Did Chuck have a mask on or NOT???). To view highlights of the event check out the slideshow on the Recent Events page.
Thanks again to everyone who made it such a great event!

Christian Education Field Trip
We will be going on a special field trip on Sunday, November 19th to the movie “The Star.” This is the opening weekend for the movie and Platteville will be getting it. We will be going to the 1:00 (ish) time movie. We won’t know an exact time until closer to the date. The cost will be $7.50 and that includes admission, small drink and small popcorn. We HAVE to have the money in advance for this. Families are welcome to go and meet us there also. We are hoping to have a large group attend. If your child wants to go please let Renee or Sherry know as soon as possible.
Our Christmas program “The Star” will be on December 10th at the 10:30 AM service. We will have regular Christian Education that day so we can practice our songs and anything else that is needed. We will be handing out parts, songs and readings in the very near future. Please help your child at home with any part or song they have.
We will have a quick run through during class time on December 3rd and a full practice on December 9th from 9-11 AM. If your child will not be here it is very important that we know as soon as possible.
Jesus’ Birthday Party
We will celebrate Jesus’ Birthday on December 17th during Coffee Hour (9:00 AM). We will sing Happy Birthday for each month. When your birthday is in the month we are singing for you put as many pennies in the jar as your age (ex: 29 years old = 29 pennies). The students will go to their classrooms for a party until class is over at 10:25 AM.
