From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere. Thing 1 and Thing 2 request you to register for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday extravaganza happening Friday March 1, 6:30-9:00 pm. He would like you to bring a friend and come dressed as your favorite Dr. Seuss character - prizes to be awarded. You will become part of his favorite stories for a night. All characters, old and young, big and small, tall or short, are encouraged to register in the narthex at church or online by Wednesday, February 27 at  Adult and teen volunteers sign up too.

The cost is $20 per child, with a family maximum of $50. If you’ve already completed a registration form for the 2018/2019 program year, please email by Wednesday, February 27 to let us know your child(ren) will be attending.

First Friday is a kids' night out program designed to give parents an evening to themselves. Volunteers provide creative and exciting entertainment for the children in a safe and fun atmosphere at the church. First Friday is for children aged six months through 12 years.

All children in our community are welcome, whether or not their families attend Little River UCC, so spread the word and make your plans!
