Instead of a Pre-K class, 4-year-olds will meet in the Nursery
Babysitters will show DVDs, read stories, and have coloring pages and activities on Jesus for them, and they'll also get to play and have fun together
For High School, instead of GIFT this coming year, they will participate in "Person of Christ", the catechetical session in Youth Group!
We want to promote our new Youth Ministry program and encourage our high schoolers to really get involved with the Youth Group...they'll meet weekly, and one meeting each month will include a catechetical session ("Person of Christ") which integrates the same theme that we'll cover in GIFT.
