Young 5’s Weekly News


October 24, 2016



We have a pastor!  Pastor Scott Eberlein has officially accepted the call to Open Arms and he will begin working the end of November.  We look forward to getting to know him and his family.  

Halloween Party Info:  Children can come dressed in their costumes but please have them fully clothed under their costumes.  Please provide a labeled bag for the costume to go back into.   I will be meticulous when I take the costumes off to be sure all pieces are in the bag.  You will need them that evening.  J

This week we will be learning about the letter Pp.  P makes the sound we hear in the beginning of pumpkin (and pastor).  We will be doing a lot of pumpkin activities on Thursday this week. Thursday will also be PAJAMA DAY. We will also be playing with pumpkin playdough, puppets, puzzles, and many other fun activities. 

Parent/teacher conferences will be Wednesday, November 2 and Thursday, November 3.  Please sign-up this week. 



Jesus Time

          We will learn about Joseph (Jacob’s second youngest son) and his brothers.  Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him because he was his father’s favorite and he had dreams of them bowing down to him.  They threw him in a pit, sold him as a slave, and told their father he was killed by a wild animal.   This was all part of God’s plan though.
