Frontier Valley Elementary Thanks You

We want to thank you for all the support you and your community have provided to Frontier Valley this year. The teachers have so appreciated the donations of snacks. We have been able to stock a snack cabinet in the office for students and each teacher also has a supply of snacks in their classrooms. It has also been wonderful to have backpacks ready with supplies for students who need them. Your church community has made such a difference for our students this year! Hope you are having a great week!

We’re Going to Have Soooo Much Fun!

Preteens, would you like to have fun while enjoying the beautiful nature God created for us? Sunday, October 2nd we will be meeting at Lone Creek Farms (3879 N State Hwy 83, Franktown, CO 80116) from 2:30 – 5:00pm. I am hoping to get a group rate. To help with the costs, the Children’s Ministry will pay for half of the entrance fee. I am charging $13 for each person. You can pay online with a credit card here or cash and check in person. It is helpful to have an idea on who is planning to attend in advance. I know that sometimes schedules can be tricky, we will of course welcome last-minute plans! Please let me know if you are planning to attend and if you need help covering the cost.

Hospitals and other care facilities don’t notify churches if one of their members is there. Likewise, we need to know if someone is interested in a visit from a pastor, church care team member or Stephen Minister. Please let us know so that we can visit and pray with those who are most in need.
