YESTERDAY'S QUIZ: What is a "gittith"? (From Pat King)Oh! I know this one! Yes, I do! Are you ready?
So, the answer is, you forgot to use spell-check, and this is what you ended up with!
No? then how about this (according to a Jewish site):
The word Gittish signifies belonging to Gath. It probably denotes either a stringed, musical instrument (usually believed to be a zither) or a kind of music derived from Gath, where David sojourned for a time during the persecution of Saul, 1 Samuel 27:1-7 . The word Gath also signifies in Hebrew a winepress. This word is found in the titles of Psalms 8, 81, and 84.
TODAY'S QUIZ: What Psalm was set to the tune of "The Death of the Son"?

ST. JOHN'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS CHILDREN IN WORSHIP AND WHAT WE PROVIDE FOR THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES!!
We love kids and St. John's and we love having them in worship with us. We love hearing their voices and seeing them enjoying it all. Please bring them! We want to see them there even when they're a little squirrely. Here are some things that we provide for all of our children on Sunday mornings!
- Busy bags- These are bags filled with fun things to play with and things to color and draw. They are hanging on the coat rack near the door.
- Activity Sheets- Along with the bulletins for the adults there are activity sheets for the kids. Sometimes adults like to use them too.
- A "cry" room. If your kids get too restless and antsy and you need a break from trying to hold them down or keep them quiet, the room right next door "the overflow" is reserved for you to take them. The wall is insulated and mostly soundproof so use it as much and as often as you want. Soon we will have some toys and things to calm them down.
- Children's messages- During all of our worship services at which there are enough kids present, pastor has them come up front to teach them the lesson of the day. They usually get a little treat when they come up.
- Sunday school- After our first service at 10:15 and during the 10:45 service a Sunday school teacher will take the kids to a Sunday school room and teach them a special lesson after the Children's message.
Spread the word and let your kids and grandkids know about this!
