MARCH 2021

  The marvelous thing about learning style is that every teacher can help to provide a warm prevailing breeze to lift all those “Kites” and help them soar.  Sometimes the strings may get tangled up, but now we can understand how a little more dimension and space can keep them free and flying.

Pizza Fundraiser

How does fundraiser money get used?

          We know that parents may question the reason for fundraising campaigns and we know that they may become burdensome. We want you to know how much we depend on the proceeds and how much we appreciate your loyalty and participation.

             Proceeds from this fundraiser will enable us to add a fresh layer of play sand on both playgrounds. Our Little Caesars Pizza fundraiser earned $750.00.

DELIVERY DATE: WEEK OF MARCH 8th – Thank you for your participation…enjoy your pizza!!!!!

 

N.C.L.C. Pastor’s Corner

March is here already!  The days are getting longer.  It has been quite a different winter for us all.   I hope you and your family have had an opportunity to spend some quality time with each other.   

This month we are in the season of Lent.  Lent is the 40 days before Easter when we think about how God demonstrated His love for us by paying the price for our sin on the cross. There are all kinds of emotions connected with this season:

  • Sorrow that such a sacrifice was necessary because of our sin
  • Wonder at the depth of God’s love for us
  • Gratefulness for God’s willingness to go to such lengths for us
  • And many more …

I put some materials in each child’s folder at NCLC to help you and your family take some time to reflect on why Jesus sacrifice was necessary and how willing God was to pay such a price for us.  He must love us a lot!  You can get those materials and some supplemental pictures at NCLC website (nclckids.org).

The children will be singing the song “Hosanna” this month in preparation for Palm Sunday which is March 28th and Easter is April 4th.  It is a fun song.  Even the younger toddlers enjoy it.

Your child will be bringing home pictures they have colored and possibly a craft project relating to the story they have heard.  Please ask them about the story.  It will help them remember. 

Because of the continuing situation with COVID, we will not be having chapel with the children for Easter.

Upcoming Events:

If you do not have a place to celebrate Easter or the events of Holy Week leading up to Easter, we would love to have you join us.  Not sure of all of the times for the following services yet, but they will be listed on our website at Community-Chapel.org

  • Palm Sunday, March 28th – Service at 9am on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/communitychapelNH
  • Maundy Thursday, April 1 – online
  • Good Friday Meditations, April 2nd – online
  • Easter Sunday, April 12th – Possibly outside in the parking lot

A Request:  If there are any changes in your family, please let me know.  Changes in the family, even the loss of a well-loved pet, can deeply affect a child.  We would like to be aware so that we can help your child through this difficult time.  And, I would like to pray for you and your child and help you in any way that I or Community Chapel can help.

 

Nancy’s Notes

When the weather is too cold or icy to go out at recess, I like to make our music and movement classes even more physically active than they usually are. Today we played our hand drums as usual, making the sounds of snowflakes, raindrops and thunder. Then we turned up the music and became a marching band, playing our drums and marching to John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever”. We tiptoed for the quiet parts, while I pointed out the flutes and other woodwinds, and then we stomped through the loud trombone and other brass sections. Our favorite part was listening for the piccolo part that sounds like a little bird! Some of the teachers played along as the audience, waving to our parade as we went by.

Looks like our spring songs will have to wait, but we will be ready for them when spring finally returns.

  Happy Singing!

Warmly,

Nancy
