John 9:35-41

35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

36 “Who is he, sir?” the man asked. “Tell me so that I may believe in him.”

37 Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”

38 Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.

39 Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”

40 Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, “What? Are we blind too?”

41 Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains. (NIV)

The Helping Hands Ministry encourages you to send some “sunshine” (i.e., a card) to let them know that we are thinking of them and are keeping them in our prayers.

 * There is an unstaffed nursery for babies located on the same floor as the sanctuary that may be used at any time.

* For the 10:30 Worship Service, we have a staffed nursery downstairs in room 1 for children up through the age of 3.

* Feel free to use the downstairs nursery even if it is not staffed.

* Both nurseries have a closed circuit TV through which you can watch the worship service.

Jr. Church (8:15 & 10:30 Worship Services)

 * We offer a Jr. Church program during both morning worship services downstairs in the social room for children age 3 up to and including 6th grade.

 Should my 3 year-old be in the nursery or Jr. Church?

 * If your child is going to turn 4 before September 1st, your child should be in Jr. Church.

* If your child is going to turn 4 on or after September 1st, your child should be in the nursery until the first Sunday in September of this year.

* If you would like your 3 year-old to be in Jr. Church before he/she is supposed to be in Jr. Church, then you need to stay with your child during Jr. Church each Sunday until a leader says it is okay to leave.

Sunday School (9:30)

* We have classes for children (beginning when they are old enough to walk), youth, and adults. If your child is not old enough to walk, feel free to take him/her with you to your class. For more info, please see either the Sunday School brochure or the Welcome Packet. They are located in the pew rack and on a table in the hallway.

 Want to know more about our church?
