Wednesday After School LinCt
Beginning September 15th!
Faith Formation at OSLC has a new name - LinCt! We are now offering faith formation on either Wednesdays after school (for Kindergarten – 6th Grade) or Sunday mornings (for ages 3 – 6th Grade). Parents of kids in K-6th Grade can pick either Wednesday or Sunday LinCt.
Wednesday LinCt is held after school, with transportation provided from school to church, and will include choir, snacks, recreation, and faith formation!
Choir is fun at any age, but we want to assure you that choir time is not your traditional choir rehearsal. Our choir time is filled with much variety: we sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and learn about worship! The Children’s Choirs sing once a month during Sunday Worship. Each year we learn and perform a Children’s Musical for the Congregation as well. It is so much fun to see the children use their imagination and creativity to learn about their voices, each other, our church and the world.
OSLC leases a “church” school bus, which will have an orange sign with the initials OSLC by the bus door. The bus picks the kids up from Jefferson and the Middle School, and brings them directly to church. The Kindergartners will take a bus from Washington to Jefferson, where one of the older children will meet them and bring them to the Jefferson Cafeteria to wait with the rest of the 1st through 4th graders (who are supervised by an adult OSLC member/Jefferson employee). Our Middle School students are picked up first, and then the bus picks up the Jefferson group.
When the kids arrive at church, we take a few minutes to enjoy a snack together. We have a rotating snack schedule that we will be sending you. We ask that each family brings treats for the choirs once or twice a year. We do our best to have your child’s snack day scheduled around the time of their birthday, if during the school year. If your child has any food allergies and/or requires the use of an EpiPen, please note it on the registration form. After our snack time, the kids are either in choir with Shannon Stuckey, or in faith formation with Pastor Kathy or Lindsay Medina, our Education Ministries Coordinator.
The children will be ready to be picked up at 5:00 p.m. in the Social Hall or outside, depending on the weather. Please make sure Lindsay knows that you have your child with you when you leave. We want to make sure all kids are accounted for and safe. If someone other than a parent will be picking up your child, please let Lindsay know before LinCt begins that day. Families are invited to stay for our Wednesday evening meal, which begins at 5:15 p.m. (suggested donation of $2 per person).
Registration forms are available in the Social Hall, or you can sign up here for LinCt! If you have any questions, please contact Lindsay!
