What else is ahead? Get READY – here we go!
For starters, the Sunday Education Hour (SPL Kids, Parents, Confirmation) will be on summer break after May 14th. However, you can join our Family Experience Sundays this summer (more info below).
SPL Littles will continue for 4-6 year olds during the 10:30 AM message time throughout the summer, as well as Nursery for children 3 and under.
LEVEL UP SUNDAY – MAY 14TH
All 3 year olds through 6th graders are invited to join us during the Sunday Education Hour on May 14th for Level Up Sunday. On this date, we will celebrate how far each student has come this year and transition them into the next grade level. We will especially celebrate our 6th Grade students as they officially say “Goodbye” SPL Kids and “Hello” SPL Youth! After celebrating students in the Great Room, we will form a tunnel to the Loft to cheer 6th Graders on as they make their way to Youth Group! (Oh, and there will be cupcakes!)
FX FAMILY EXPERIENCE SUNDAYS – FIRST SUNDAYS IN SUMMER
Join us the first Sunday of each month in June, July, and August for a family worship experience from 9:15-10:15 AM. A Family Experience (FX) is an engaging, once a month summer event where parents and kids experience music, laughter, and fun teaching about the character of God. This family shared experience will equip parents to begin spiritual conversations with their kids all month long as families take home a spiritual conversation starter kit to use throughout the summer months! Join us for our first FX on June 4th in the Great Room.
READY, SET, MOVE VBS – JUNE 13-15 FAIRVIEW PARK
Come together with the whole community and SPL at Fairview Park for this year’s VBS titled Ready, Set, MOVE! Families with kids can come participate in Live Music, Bible Story, Activities, Service Projects, and an amazing AFTERPARTY on June 13, 14, and 15th from 6:00-8:30 PM. We’re excited for Mimi’s Frosty Ice Cream Truck, Kona Ice, Inflatables, Foam Blaster, and more! Learn more at spldecatur.org/vbs

A FEW MORE REMINDERS:
SPL Kids Time (Sunday Education Hour) – Join us on Sundays at 9:15 AM for a mini-VBS experience upstairs that includes small group time to build relationships and pray, plus large group story, games, and music. We hope your kids can join us for the best hour of the week! Our offerings this year will go to support Feed My Starving Children. Our final gathering before summer break will be May 14th.
SPL Parents – Also at 9:15 AM on Sundays is a time for parents/guardians to gather in Room 122 for connection, guest speakers, and more. Join the SPL Parents Facebook group to learn more.
Play Dates at the SPL Field House – On the first Wednesday of the month at 9:00 AM (prayer and story at 9:30 AM), parents/guardians and their young children are invited to our safe, free, grace-filled indoor space for a toddler bounce house, balls, tunnels, and more. Invite your friends, because we want our building to be a blessing to Decatur!
SPL Littles – In order to offer support to parents through the transition from full-time Nursery to full-time worship, we offer a story, prayer, and activity time during the message at 10:30 AM worship for 4-6 year old children. These activities will be different than what’s happening upstairs during Sunday Education Hour, so 4-6 year olds are able to participate in both. Before worship (10:15-10:30 AM), participating families will check in near the Dining Room and grab a name tag.
Nursery – The Nursery is available for children 6 weeks – 3 years old during weekend and midweek worship services, the Sunday Education Hour, and F3 classes.
Kid Kits – Children big and small are invited to grab a bag of items to support their worship experience. Pick from sensory activities, coloring pages, books, sermon notes, and more. After worship, return your bag to the rack.
