Early Registration Deadline for Getaway


Attention Parents, Grandparents and our Moreland Family:

LOGOS is Moreland Presbyterian’s Tuesday night program for kids in 1st through 5th grades.  At LOGOS, kids learn worship skills through song and bells, deepen their understanding of the Bible, fellowship with other kids and adults from the congregation and, above all, have lots of fun!!  LOGOS is held 5-7 pm on Tuesday nights from October through March.

We would love to hear from you this summer:

  • If you are new to LOGOS and considering enrolling your child for 2017-2018.
  • If you can support our children and this ministry by volunteering as a table parent, cook, dishwasher or program assistant. Especially needed for next year:

Shopper:  Shopper will pick up items from Costco, Cash & Carry, etc. on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday prior to LOGOS and drop them off in the church kitchen. Menus and quantities are already planned.

Food Prep: Prepare cooking ingredients by washing and chopping (lettuce, tomatoes, grapes, etc.), and filling condiment containers when needed (sour cream/salsa/ketchup/mustard, etc.). Time expected approximately 1 hour on Tuesday afternoons sometime between 1-4. This role helps our cooks to be able to get dinner on the table for a large crowd in an hour.

Please email Beth at if you would like to help or if you have any questions about LOGOS. Registration forms will be available in August.

Thanks!—LOGOS co-coordinators Beth Schnyder and Heather Dohrmann
