We will be using the Gym, Dining Room and the Great Hall for each PNO.

How old must children be to participate in PNO?
Children age 3 years (must be potty- trained) up to 5th grade are invited to attend.

How do I sign up?
You may register by filling out a Registration Form (one per child) which is available in the church office or download and print the Registration Form (see below).

The registration deadline is the Tuesday before each PNO offered. If the need to cancel occurs, cancellation must be made no later than noon the Friday prior to PNO and a credit will be available toward a future PNO (Sorry no refunds).

We will be serving cheese and pepperoni pizza at 6:00 p.m. for all age groups. We will be serving tropical punch and popcorn as well. We will maintain a peanut-free environment.
