We want to encourage you to participate in Grandparent’s Day at Second Baptist on Sunday, February 24. We will focus together, as a church, on intergenerational relationships and celebrate these relationships through Grandparent’s Day.
If you are a grandparent and your grandchildren do not attend Second now is a great time to invite them! We will have some fun grandparent/grandchild activities before and during Sunday School, children singing in worship and also special worship bag activities for grandparents and children to use together.
Our Student Ministry will be involved in sharing their special gifts with grandparents and great grandparents in some of our Adult Sunday School classes at 9:45 and other activities are planned during the Well Service at 8:45 in the Family Life Center.
As a parent you can encourage participation in this intergenerational learning experience by inviting your child’s grandparent, or you could adopt a grandparent to invite. We realize that we have many children who live far away from their grandparents and are encouraging those children to invite someone from church that is important to them, so no children have to miss out on this day. We also realize that some grandparents have more than one grandchild at Second. If this is your situation, ask your grandparent to attend Sunday School with one and worship with another.
We will have some small breakfast treats in The Commons before Sunday School and a photo backdrop area for taking pictures. At 8:45am and 11:00am elementary children will attend worship with their grandparents. At 9:45am grandparents will attend Sunday school with their grandchild. Some of our elementary students will sing in worship and then be encouraged to worship in the pews with their grandparents. Before coming into worship, make sure that your grandparent stops by the worship bags to find an activity they can use to enhance their worship experience.
We are excited about Grandparent’s Day on February 24 and hope that each of you will join us. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
Peace and Grace,
Katie, Ben and Kathi
