Activities for Children and Teens
Christian Education News
Our regular Sunday school year is rapidly coming to a close, but it has
been one full of fun and promise. We have welcomed six new babies to our
nursery since last summer and we still have at least one more on the way!
Because of this exciting population boom we are in need of Nursery help.
Many of our parents would love to leave their babies in the safe and loving
arms of one of our congregation members for an hour so that they may rejuvenate
their spirit. If you would be willing to work one or two Sundays a month,
please see me, one of the CE superintendents or Jeannine Page-Tear.
Do you love children, but prefer to work with ones who are past the infancy
stage? Not a problem - we have children from toddler age through high
school. We are also looking for teachers for our elementary age students
for the fall. We have a great curriculum written by PCUSA and will give
you all the training, help supplies and support necessary to make the
experience enjoyable for both teachers and students.
Graduation time is right around the corner! If you know of a church member
who is graduating from high school, college or other institutions of higher
learning, please let me know or call the church office by May 23rd, so
that we may include them in our Graduate Recognition Reception on June
June 13th is our Teacher Appreciation Sunday. We will be honoring those
who have devoted their time and efforts to your children and students
throughout the year. It is also the last regular class before we begin
our summer program the next week. We are planning a trip to the Detroit
Zoo following church on the 13th. We will probably meet together for lunch
then head out together. Watch the bulletin and the next newsletter for

D.O.G. : Disciples Of God (Son of) Mans
Where ideas are shared and thoughts are
The young people that make up the FPC Youth Group are
unique individuals. They center themselves on the belief that Jesus Christ
is their number one mentor and that through Him, they cannot be shaken.
Our group is open to all young people. You do not have
to be a member of our congregation to participate in our activities. Whether
you have known Christ for some time, or you are looking to see what He
is all about, there is a place for you.
As Disciples Of God we strive to:
Become followers of Christ and leaders in our society
Give our time when and where it is needed and wanted
Inform others and spread goodwill in our communities
Develop a better future for our church family and our
Enjoy the fellowship of our peers
Our activities range from outreach to hospitalized children
to sleeping in boxes. Some of the things we do consist of:
Meeting for times of fellowship
Taking part in worship services
Visiting sick children
The D.O.G.s normally meet on the second and fourth Saturdays
at 7 pm, but many special events are added to the schedule. Contact Joelle
Page or Mike Cavin for more information.
