We are excited to announce an addition to our existing Sunday morning Children’s Ministry program. As you know, every Sunday morning for many years Jane Noteware and Sandra Strickland have taught our elementary Sunday school class at 9:30 a.m. and the kids love them! This great program will continue thanks to their selfless service and THEIR love for your kids! We are now adding Children’s Church during worship.

Confirmation Classes
October 6 through November 17
5-7:30 p.m.
Children and youth in 7th through 12th grades are meeting together for the next seven (7) weeks to understand what THEIR Credo is ~ What are their guiding principles and faith beliefs? This is a very important time in their lives, and they will have an opportunity to dive into some very deep faith topics and questions while exploring what their journey looks like. We will provide dinner each week, so please let us know if your kids will be there. Pastor Mike from Tinney Chapel and three of their kids will partner with us and we’ll be hanging out in the LOFT in the FLC this fall! If you need additional information, please contact Pastor Debbie at 903-342-6172, text 972-896-5254, or email debbie.a.lyons@gmail.com

Chrysalis Flights for Youth and
Young Adults (Walk to Emmaus)
What happens on the Chrysalis Weekend?
You will enjoy three days of singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and participating in small groups. Discussions center around fifteen talks given by youth and adult laity and clergy. These talks present the theme of God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in the Christian community and how it is expressed in the world. You’ll also discover how grace is real in your life, how you live a life of grace, and how you bring that grace to others. You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily celebration of Holy Communion and to understand more fully the body of Christ. 
You will experience God’s grace through the prayers and acts of anonymous service offered by the Chrysalis community. You will leave with an experience of Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grace-filled service and leadership.
