April Preschool News

Spring! Let's hope the weather will start getting warmer, so we can enjoy being outdoors more. For this month in preschool, the 3's will be learning about ''Signs of Spring,'' and the 4's will be learning about ''Insects & Bugs.'' During Jesus Time, both classes will learn the following stories: ''Jesus Dies on the Cross, Jesus Comes Back to Life,'' and ''Jesus Helps Thomas Believe.''

Both classes will enjoy two field trips this month. The first one will be at the Ela Public Library to get a behind the scenes tour as well as enjoy some special stories and a craft. Then at the end of the month we will be going to Heron Park to help clean it up and enjoy some play time. In addition, this month we will begin to work on getting ready for our final Spring Program which will be held on Monday, May 21st from 6:30 till about 7:30. All friends, family and New Life members are invited so mark your calendars!

Finally, I will have my final parent/teacher conferences on Sunday, April 8th during the evening and on Tuesday, April 10th right after school during the day.

    New, Online Giving Opportunity at New Life

    One of the features that came with New Life's accounting software package is access to a secure, on-line giving portal. This allows anyone to give to our church using a credit card, debit card or ACH transfer (we're still working on PayPal). You can tag your gift as a one-time or recurring donation, endowment contribution, preschool tuition or parking lot gift - and also pay the credit card fee in advance if you so choose. Both an immediately printable and an eMailed receipt are generated for your records. Gifts are recorded directly into New Life's accounting software, which are then acknowledged by our Treasurer and Financial Secretary. you wish, you may include a copy of your receipt in your offering envelope, or mark the back ''online''.

    You may join us as we bravely face the 21st Century after our Lord's birth by clicking the ''Give'' button on our website, or going straight to this page.
