We are working on a desert! Next week we will add pyramids and camels. What fun we had together! Traveling by caravan, we stopped at the oasis for water and doughnuts.
Church is fun….it is where we learn and where our friends are!

Safety For Our Youngest Disciples:
Adult Worker Training
Children Safety Training
Our insurance company has recommended that all persons who will work with children, take a class in “Child Abuse and Awareness and Prevention Training”. With this in mind we have put together a class on Sunday, September 18th at 12:00 pm with a pizza lunch and program. Training should run about 90 minutes and is the same course required of all YMCA staff prior to employment and renewed annually. It is a video facilitated course designed by the YMCA and its insurance company, Redwoods.
How to Use an AED
We have an AED located outside the sanctuary but does anyone know how to use it? Hands- On instruction in the care and use of an AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR will be provided on Sunday, October 9th after church for about 30 minutes. There will be videos and hands-on training certified by the American Heart Association. This is not a full CPR certification class but that would be an option at a later time.
An epic mock naval battle between two pontoon boats manned by FUMC youth, parents, and friends occurred at Lake Watauga last Sunday to mark the end of our summer youth activities. Battle was intense as participants fired water balloons and blasters in a fight for Drenched Glory!

KIDS CAMPING DAY
Sunday, October 2nd, 2016
A day to play in the church yard and cook your own lunch.
We will learn about the nomadic people in the bible, Have Sunday school in the tent! A full day of games, learning, and just plain fun! We will be located on the Sparger Road side near the playground, as we are learning about
many Old Testament stories.
What do I need from you? A portable fire pit, or a dug fire pit, some extra hands when we cook if you have wee ones, and a sense of excitement as we experience shepherding, drawing water, cooking over a fire,
and welcoming guests into our home.
Children learn kinesthetically, they learn best by using their own bodies and their hands.
This great day of fun will lay a foundation for Bible stories for years to come. Feel free to invite a friend but make reservations.
