** June 2018 Announcements

**Special Reminders/Announcements...***

1. New Children's Ministry Policy - All kids (nursery to Grade 5) need to be picked from Children's Ministry Program.
Please check the "Canaan Kids Sunday Children's Programs" page if you need to know which classroom to go to.  Pick up time is a great opportunity to meet other parents or touch base with your child's leader/teacher.  Thank you for your assistance to pick up your child/children on time.    

2.  New Children's Ministry Rules
We recently introduced new Children's Ministry Rules to kids.  We hope these new rules help kids remember the different ways they can positively interact with peers and Children's Ministry leaders.  
Please know that if a child consistently has a difficult time with following the rules, then a parent will need to "shadow" the child for the next couple of classes to help with behavior.  Thank you for your assistance.  
 
3.  Be On Time and Prepared!
Our teachers/leaders appreciate you bringing your child to children's ministry programs on time and prepared.  Being on time shows your child/children that worshipping God is important.  Being prepared allows your child to fully participate in activities with necessary supplies.  Being prepared can include all or any of following: light mess-free snack, jacket for cooler weather, tithe/offering, and Bible (for grade 2 and older kids).

4.  Help "RESCUE" VBS Summer Camp with donations?  
Please check out the VBS donations board (church fellowship hall) to see how you can help with lending or donating much needed supplies.  Last day to drop off items is now July 1.  Thanks!
