For the safety of our children and staff, please remember to not allow a person you don't recognize to follow you in through the facility doors. We have systems in place to ensure that unknown individuals must request access before entering. We have had an increased number of parents allowing people who don't belong in the facility to enter behind them. Anyone who does not have a child or employment at the Center must enter through the Church main entrance.

Classroom of the Month
This month we are recognizing our Kitchen staff for the spectacular job they do feeding our kids every day! Karen Endicott is our Kitchen Manager and has been with First Christian for 13 years. She has been managing the kitchen since January of 2016. She prepares delicious as well as nutritious meal for our children and staff. Shirley Luk has been an employee for 12 years and is a great support and help in preparing the meals. Timberly Tureff joined our staff a few weeks ago and has quickly learned the ropes.

A Message from the Children's Ministry Director!
On Friday, February 21, First Christian Church will begin a 10 session Marriage Enrichment class based on John Gottman’s book Eight Dates: Essential Conversations for a Lifetime of Love. Some conversations matter more than others in relationships. You connect and fall in love by talking. If you’ve been in a relationship for years, what conversations should you have to reinvigorate the connection and passion that first brought you together?
A happy relationship isn’t the result of having lots of things in common—as we often think. It comes from knowing how to address your core differences in a way that supports each other’s needs and dreams. Every strong relationship is a result of a never-ending conversation between partners. Eight Dates guides you through how to talk—and how to listen—in a way that will be beneficial for you as an individual and as a couple.
This monthly class starts Friday, February 21, at 6:15pm in room 116 at First Christian Church. The program cost is $50 per family, which includes the cost of the class book and materials. Child care is available upon request! Register for the class & sign up for childcare at www.fccedmond.org/register
Additional Friday Date Nights are: March 27, April 24, May 29, June 26, July 24, August 28, September 25, October 23 and November 20.
