Walk to Fight Hunger
Here are the new descriptions of our current
children's education by age group:
This year's Lancaster Crop Walk will be changing
location to our own neighborhood! Join our team
of walkers to raise funds and awareness to combat
hunger through Church World Service. 25% of
funds raised stays in our community to be used as a
resource shared through the Lancaster Council of
Nursery, 0-3yrs: Teacher Cheryl Gahring is glad to
care for our littlest ones. The room is located just
past the Hub, down the hall on the right.
Preschool/KG, 4-5yr: Dick and Sandy Cummings
will be teaching this class, with focus on God's love
for us and how Jesus teaches us to love one
another. This classroom is at the base of the stairs
that go down past the nursery.
The 5k, or 3.1 miles, will begin and end at the
Lancaster Church of the Brethren. Following the
walk there will be a celebration of food and
fellowship. We will have our forms on Sunday,
September 10 in the Gathering Space for you to
begin fundraising. In addition, Grandview plans to
be a water-stop on the new neighborhood route.
We would like to have several volunteers help with
hospitality during the afternoon as we welcome
walkers. Consider helping in this way too! For
more details, contact Grace Freeman at 717-4684027.
1st-2nd grade: This new class will meet downstairs
in the Fish Room with Jessica Kahler. She will be
helping our young ones to become developing and
emerging leaders through play, story, reading, and
discussion. Kids will be physically involved in
exploring the lessons through both tactile and
Chicken and Waffles Night
3-5th grade: Tim Riggs will continue teaching our
oldest elementary students in the Fireplace Room.
We continue to grow through the New Testament
this year, with attention to some of our
contemporary church saints and heroes. Kids are
involved in hearing Bible stories paired with science
experimenting, game playing, drumming, theatre,
and more. We hope they learn in ways that help
them to form their own faith and beliefs.
On Tuesday, September 12 at 6pm, Grandview will
unveil the first ever Chicken and Waffles night,
complete with scrumptious comfort food,
fellowship, and a rubber chicken-inspired game,
straight from the creatively goofy brain of Kirstin
Shrom-Rhoads. This event is for all ages. Don't
miss out on the hilarity of the games, the
deliciousness of the meal, and the joy of being in
community. Sign up at the Hub so that we can
prepare food - and T-shirts! - for all who wish to
participate in the fun.
While Youth Pastor George Swank is away, Youth
Group will operate differently than in previous
years. High School will meet during the 9:30
service on 1st and 3rd Sundays, and Middle School
will meet during the 10:45 service on 2nd and 4th
Sundays. As always, there will be snacks,
discussion, and games. Regular programming will
continue when George returns from paternal leave.
