Together We Grow Playgroup 2011

A place to Laugh, Learn, and Love...

Together We Grow is a "playgroup" program designed for children up to the age of 3 and their parent or caregiver. We work from a Christian foundation which encourages children to learn and interact in a positive environment.

At Together We Grow, children will learn about the world that they are discovering. This will contribute to their social, emotional and intellectual growth through use of various activities and engaging materials. Children will learn how to share and have respect for each other. They will enjoy activities together and also with their parent/caregiver. Children will have discovery time, art projects and stories. They will learn colors, beginning sight words, and songs. The class will share in prayer and enjoy snack time.

Together We Grow provides great interaction for parents/caregivers and children alike!

Together We Grow offers 13-session programs on Tuesday mornings, 9:30am - 11:00am. The fall program runs September through December and the Winter/Spring program runs January through April.

Haverford Township's Community Good Friday Service

Christian Cross by arbyreed
Good Friday Service
will be held on April 22 at 2 p.m.
St. George's Episcopal Church
Darby Road & Ardmore Avenue*

Sanctuary doors will be open for quiet prayer
& meditation
beginning at 12:00 noon on Friday.

 The centerpiece of this year's service will be a dramatic reading of the entire passion narrative from the Gospel according to Matthew by three lay readers. The congregation will also participate in this reading, drawing each worshiper into the experience of Jesus' suffering.

A special meditation will be offered by the Rev. Dr. Peter B. Doghramji, a resident of Havertown and currently pastor of the Armenian Evangelical Church of New York City.

Singers from various churches in the township will come together to form the joint choir, and will present an anthem as well as lead the congregational singing.

Let others know about this, and plan to attend as part of your observance of this all-important time in the Christian calendar.

PLEASE NOTE: Choir members should be present at 12:30 p.m. for a rehearsal. Bring a black folder if you have one; black robes will be available at St. George's. Clergy should be present no later than 1:30 p.m.. Liturgical vestments (if you use them) should be plain black.
