It's with sadness that at last evening's meeting, the session received and accepted Karen Vida's resignation as Christian Education Director. Personally, I've appreciated her dedication and involvement during my time at Cove. She will be missed. The elders decided to begin looking for a replacement after the new session is installed.
Since we're about to move into the Christmas season, I think we all want to make sure our children have the chance to celebrate fully the birth of Jesus. To do this, we need to work together. We have a Christmas pageant scheduled for December 13 (program at 6:30, preceded by a dinner at 5:30). We've also discussed a parents day out for December 5. If you're willing to help with either activity or if you have an idea for something else we might do, please give me a call. Any time you can offer would be appreciated.
As a word of good news, TJ Smith has volunteered to work with our older youth. I know he'd also welcome any help you can offer and of course your prayers.
