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.
“Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fullness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalm 16:11
