June 2014 Newsletter


June 2014                                                                                                                                                          
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

The Lord set his Love upon you and chose you.. Deut. 7:7b

The JN Nativity Special: Combined Growing in Grace Program!

Our precious angel girls!
Mary Had a Baby...Yes, Lord!

We had a wonderful time performing in the rec room for each other today as all of our combined Growing in Grace classes had a joined assembly! Each class sang a special tune (infants and toddlers sang "Jesus Loves the Little Ones Like Me" and "This Little Light of Mine", two's sang "Ring Ring Ring the Bells" and "Jesus Loves The Little Children", the three's sang "Baby Jesus" and the four year old class performed the story of baby Jesus through the song "Mary Had a Baby"!).

At the very end, all of the students joined together to sing, "Go Tell It On The Mountain". It was a wonderful performance and all of the classes took their roles very seriously! =) Please enjoy the photos below and let us know if you would like any high resolution images for printing at

Have a wonderful and blessed holiday!

The program opened with prayer. Even our little students take this time very seriously!

The Advent Season is Upon Us!

The Advent Season is Upon Us!

Season’s Greetings!

Advent is upon us and during chapel time this month we are looking forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
This first week we’ve learned of the Good News to Mary. She was going to be the mother of the promised Messiah. We talked of promises and what they mean when given. God promised to send a Savior who is Christ the King and he always keeps his promises!
Next week we will be finding out the “rest” of the story. The children are eager to hear more about Mary & Joseph’s trip to Bethlehem. Also we have been learning some new songs and finger plays to celebrate the season. The children love to sing and move to the music used in chapel time. It is such a pleasure to see them engaged in such joyful praise and worship to our Lord and Savior.                                                                                                                                                  
Happy Holidays,
Ms. Bev
