The Sunday school did things a little differently on Easter Sunday (April 20, 2014). It was a wonderful morning spent with our church family with an Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast!
The Youth arrived bright and early to hide a multitude of eggs for our kiddos in preschool-5th grade. They had a wonderful time searching and while all that was going on outside, we were preparing a delightful breakfast downstairs.
It was a beautiful spring morning and all of that special togetherness was, of course, capped off with an outstanding Easter Worship Service in the sanctuary. We had a full crowd and choir, so many beautiful Easter lilies, and a service to treasure - in part because it was our last Easter service with Pastor Jones before his retirement this summer.
Yes, it was a blessed and beautiful culmination of Holy Week, and we're so thankful for everyone who was able to take part in that.
Christ is Risen!
On Palm Sunday, April 13, 2014, the Sunday school held its annual Bake Sale.
This year the kids voted to raise money for the Animal Welfare League of Laurel.
We are THRILLED to announce that we raised $431.65 for this wonderful cause! This is quite possibly our most successful bake sale, to date! What an incredible blessing it is to be a part of such a generous congregation. No matter what it is that the children of our church do, you support them - and so many other areas of our church. Thank you for your love, support, and generosity.
A HUGE thank you to all of our families who baked, frosted, and put together such delectable delights, without your efforts we absolutely couldn't taste such sweet success.
As we enter into April it's time to turn our focus to the Sunday School's next important event - the annual Bake Sale.
The Laurel UMC's Annual Sunday School Bake Sale will be held on Palm Sunday, April 13, 2014 before and after worship.
We hold this Bake Sale each year to raise funds for an organization of the kids' choosing. Our first year was all about creating "Sunshine Baskets" for the children's ward at one of our hospitals, next we raised money for ZooMontana, then we put the money back into the church for the new roof, and last year we raised money for the Jessie Rees Foundation's JoyJars. At this time the kids and I are still throwing ideas around about what we want the money to go towards, but we'll definitely be able to fill in that blank by Bake Sale time.
This is an event that could not be done without the parents and families of our kiddos, so please be sure to take the time to sign up on the clipboard in the education wing so we have some idea of what kinds (and how many) goodies we can expect.
So mark those calendars and prepare to bring your appetites and pocketbooks on Palm Sunday so that you can support our Sunday school's most beloved fundraiser!
Love & Blessings on your week,
