- Additional information on the curriculum--including sample lessons--can be found at its website, iamrocksolid.com.
- ANY questions, concerns, or ideas are VERY WELCOME. Please contact Kristen, even if it is just to introduce yourself!
- The ASUMC Children's Ministry launches on Sunday, November 7, 2010 with all of the children and youth developing and rehearsing this year's Chirstmas Play. Play rehearsals will continue each Sunday in November.
- The Christmas Play will be presented right after the 11:00 am worship service on Sunday, December 12, 2010.
- Sunday School begins with the telling of the stories related to Advent and Christmas on Sunday, December 5, 2010.

immediately following the 11:00 service.
