**Kid's Worship Journals — We have a new resource to help elementary-aged students to follow along with the worship service! These laminated "journals" are available inside the children's worship bags in the narthex, with extra copies on top of the stand for older children to use. They are designed to be reused week after week, so please remember to return them with the stickers and clothespin after church. We hope they are a blessing to your family's worship!
