Hey Parents & Caregivers Do you know that there are resources and opportunities for support for YOU at King Avenue?
Meal Train, In-home Visits & Wellness Ministries Did you recently welcome a new baby? Would it give you some relief to have a few meals brought to you by church families while you get settled? How about someone to come talk to you about new baby care and taking care of yourself? Contact Erin Kendall for more information on these resources. Parents’ Evening Out Take advantage of an evening of childcare once a month for children up to age 4 (and siblings up to age 9) so you can spend some  me together in a “time out” without kids to regroup and renew. Advanced registration is required. Details/registration on Realm.

Volunteers Needed
Does your child enjoy attending Worship Connections on Sunday Mornings? We are thrilled at the number of children that are participating in Worship Connections each Sunday! The classes are growing and the enthusiasm for learning is high– which means we need a few more volunteers to continue to offer this worship experience for kids up to Grade 3 during our 9am & 11am worship services. Just one Sunday a month or a willingness to be an on-call substitute teacher during worship is all it takes. Everything is provided to you and you are guaranteed to have fun! Please see Gwen DeRosa for more details and get started!

Real People Real Parenting Small Group
Join other parents and caregivers to discuss topics for Christian parents,  find support through each other’s experiences, and build stronger relationships with other King Avenue families. Join us on Sundays at 10am in the Fireside Room.
