MISSION OFFERING:

The children collect both monetary offering and other items throughout the year to share with various organizations.   Be on the watch for how you can contribute.


END OF YEAR PROGRAM

A congregational potluck will follow the service dedicated to the SS and youth of First Eidsvold parish on Sunday, May 14, at 10:30 a.m.  SS will provide hot dogs and buns.  Each family is asked to bring something to share (casserole, side dish, salad, etc.)  It can be dropped off before the service begins. Children are asked to arrive by 10:15 and report to the basement.


MEMORY WORK

Please practice memory work at home between now and the program!  Most students have their work memorized....or are very close to it, so a little extra practice at home will be VERY helpful.  Students will be reciting their assigned work at the year end program on May 15th.
