The theme this week is Oktoberfest so bust out your dirndls and lederhosen!!! And get ready for some fun Oktoberfest Festivities! It is a Week 2 so that means that Jr High will begin upstairs in the Knox Room and Sr high will begin in the gym. After dinner the 1 – 3’s will be upstairs and the 4- 6’s will be in the gym.

This week we will be having our annual fire drill so be prepared to evacuate upon hearing our “bell” sometime between 5:05 and 5:10. Safely guide your group outside to congregate on the far side of the parking lot. Keep everyone together and ensure no running. We will return in once we have considered everyone accounted for. This means any classes during Period 1 or 2 will be slightly shorter than usual. Also, the kitchen will NOT evacuate, Heather will go over the fire policy with the kitchen staff so that we can ensure everyone understands what to do in case of a real fire. You may want to take your attendance list with you so that you can be sure all are present and accounted for.

We are off to a great start everyone – thanks for your dedication to and preparation for our Ministry. Together we are stronger and we are practicing our ability to stand in community with each other so that we can go out in our broader world using our gifts and talents as best we can for all that God has called us to do!

Have a great week – see you Thursday!
