Up Coming Events
December 24th: Christmas Eve Service at 4:00 pm. Parents and children meet together in the sanctuary for a specials service to remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus! We will not have nurseries open on this Sunday. You are welcome to take all children into the sanctuary. The Nursing Mothers/Crying Babies Room will be open in the Adm. Bldg. and will live stream the service.
December 31st: Let’s Go Lego begins in Kids Church! Mr. Bob will be encouraging kids to dig deeper into their Bibles as the New Year begins. The more they read, the more Legos they can add to their race car. We will have a grand finale race at the end of the series in January. Lot’s fun, competition and learning more about God’s Word!!!
January 14th: Awakening Love…At the Right Time Conference for kids & parents! Sunday 5:00 – 7:00 pm in the gym – This conference will be of great help to parents with kids from infants to teens as you begin to help your children grow in their relationships with the opposite sex. It’s never too early to plan to navigate these waters well! Come for a nice evening including dinner for the entire family. Youth & adults will enjoy hearing the heartwarming story of Malcolm & Sarah (Atwood) Fitschen as they tell of how they met, fell in love, and married through the slightly unconventional model of courtship. Their story is warm, human, inspiring, and they will quickly tell you that it’s HOW they met and fell in love that was crucial to a successful marriage. Childcare will be provided for the Creation Kids (Infants – 4’s) and King’s Kids (K – 5th) will enjoy their regular 2nd Sunday Night program.

Steve & I both enjoy working with the children and families at St. Giles. Our heart is to see our kids grow into mighty men and women of God who know and love Him intimately. I have had the privilege of serving on the St. Giles Staff since returning from mission work in Poland in 1995. I became the Children’s Ministry Director in 1997 and met Steve several years later at a Children’s Ministry Conference. We were married here at St. Giles and are so thankful for our church family. We enjoy spending time outside in God’s creation hiking in the mountains, walking on the beach or just relaxing in our own backyard and know we are so blessed in this great adventure with Him!
