Dear Hancock Families,

With June comes the end of our regular Children’s Program and Programs for Youth as we usher in summer months and vacation. We will celebrate our year of learning on June 21st with an all age event for children in the CE Commons and the End of Year Luau for JYO kids in the Upper Room. Then everyone will join in the traditional Sundae Sunday fellowship hour.

During the summer, Eliza Duncan with adult and youth volunteers will continue offering childcare for infant and toddlers along with activities for children through 3rd grade (older children are welcome as helpers.) Children are welcome and invited to stay in worship with their families and kids pew packs are available in the entry at the front of the sanctuary.

This summer we are seeking adults and families to be Family Hosts on Sunday morning.

Please consider signing up for one Sunday, and help welcome children and families to summer worship at Hancock. Look for the sign-up sheet in the Commons, or email Sarah Felton,  sarah@manasas.com; or Sarah Kuli, sarahkuli@comcast.net, Co-Chairs of the Christian Education Committee.
