December 2014 Newsletter

Dear Joyful Noise Families,      
                             
Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s hard to believe we are looking toward our Christmas celebrations already!

The alphabet Bible stories continue to be very well received by our students and currently we are on letter J, for Jesus, which coincides with our Christmas nativity stories. 

Growing in Grace will take a short break through the week of Christmas and return to regular weekly class schedules in January of the New Year.

All classes have been working on special songs and finger plays for our special combine chapel on Dec. 17th. The children will celebrate the birth of Jesus through music and a short nativity play. The staff and students love to join together in praise and worship.

Thanksgiving blessings to everyone!           
Ms. Bev

November 2014 Newsletter



Dear Joyful Noise Families,

WOW! I can hardly believe we are going to be heading into November and looking toward Christmas and the end of the year.

 The alphabet Bible stories have been going very well. The children are beginning to recognize when the alphabet letters match their name, or that of a friend.  We’ve had some exciting Bible stories which have included lions, fishermen and even a fiery chariot! 

We ended October with The Pumpkin Parable and the” Pumpkin Prayer.”     The children learn how the farmer cleans out the yucky inside of a pumpkin before carving; God cleans out our “Yucky Stuff” and makes us new inside and out! So we can let our lights shine like the candle in the pumpkin.

 On Thursday Oct.30 the four year class came to for a special outdoor chapel time and pumpkin treasure hunt through the woods. We enjoyed apple cider, and donuts. Then the children had time to run around play, make a craft, and find a pumpkin in the yard we were thankful for the great morning we were able to enjoy together.

God’s peace,         
   
Ms. Bev

Dear Parent’s & Families,
                   
Our weekly chapel time is coming to a close for the summer months.  As warmer weather approaches many more outdoor activities and field trips are being planned by our teachers. 

Growing in Grace for our three’s, and four’s classes will be finishing by the end of June. They will resume; with new stories, themes, and craft activities in September.

The two’s, toddlers, and nursery students will continue having Growing in Grace chapel time on a reduced schedule or with combined classrooms.

As we finish out the month of June we will review and share our favorite Bible stories from the past year, sing, and thank God for all his blessings!

Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.  
--Psalms 96:2

Have a super summer,

Ms. Bev

May 2014 News



Dear Parents and Families,

“I will praise your name for you have done wonderful things.” Isaiah 25:1

Wonderful things have been happening with our students as we share and learn about the love of Jesus during our “Growing in Grace Chapel Time.”
 One day we enjoyed a “Big Picnic” of bread and fish, just like Jesus did in the Bible story Feeding the Five thousand.  The children had to share their basket of food with a friend just like the little boy in our story shared his lunch.
We spent time studying and learning about the many miracles Jesus performed while he was here.
During Lent and Easter we opened the Resurrection Eggs and retold the story of Jesus death and resurrection. We waved our palm branches and sang "Hosanna to our King". We discussed how Jesus continued to appear and visit his followers after his resurrection our students knew Jesus was alive. 
As we finish our study of the Life of Jesus, we have learned along with the disciples that Jesus is going to return to Heaven, and we remembered His words: “I am with you always”. Matthew 28:20
Our students have been learning to let Jesus into their lives and be the King of their hearts.
Grace and Peace to all our families at Joyful Noise,
Ms. Bev

March 2014 Updates: Shine your light!



Dear Parents and Families,

In our Growing in Grace chapel time our students have been learning about the life of Jesus. During chapel the children discovered Jesus grew up as a child just like them, and when he was older he performed miracles and taught everyone about God’s love.

Our students have been enjoying new songs and finger plays to coordinate with our Bible stories.  They are letting their lights shine brightly for Jesus.
One of our recent stories was when Jesus was baptized and a demonstration with the Baptismal font proved to be a captivating point of interest for all the classes.
We as we continue through the months of March and, April the children will see Jesus’s power revealed through the miracles he performs. Christ ultimate power will be witness through his death and resurrection as we look forward to Easter. 
It is truly a joy and a blessing to be able to share the love of Jesus with the children of Joyful Noise.
God Bless all of our families,
Ms. Bev
