A WORD FROM THE PASTOR:

I trust your Tuesday morning is going well for you! 

Congratulations to our 2016 Graduates! We will recognize them this coming Sunday during our morning worship service.

It seems as if our nation is becoming more and more perverse. It has been almost a year since the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. Now, it seems as if the Government is trying to force the country to even change our public restrooms from being strictly for a male or strictly for a female to allow for "transgender identity" individuals to use the restroom of their choice.

We are going to look at 1 Peter chapter 1:13 (and following) this coming Sunday to see what the Lord has to say to us about how we are to live in our day and age.

Finally, after the service this Sunday, we will have a brief business meeting to vote on Nominating's recommendations for some of our administrative committees. 

Grace and peace,

Pastor T

Good morning, friends! I cannot tell you how excited I am that you have decided to be a part of our VBS this year! I want to be a blessing to you, just as you are blessing so many others, so please know that I am here for you. If you have not already picked up your teaching materials from the office, please do that this week. 

 

Some things you will need to be thinking about...

1. The Bible stories. THIS is the most important part of VBS. Please make sure you have read over the stories multiple times and can retell them without reading from your book.

 

2. Decorating your space. I am scheduling a VBS prep/decorating day, Saturday, June 4, from 9am-12pm, and after church Sunday, June 5, to finish up last minute details. If there are any extra materials/supplies you are needing, let me know ASAP so I can get them ordered.

 

The room assignments are as follows:

Pre-K 3's- CEC Green Room

Pre-K 4's & 5's- CEC Yellow Room

Completed K - 2nd Grade- Panda Room

Completed 3rd - 5th Grade- Redbirds Room

Crafts- The Bridge

Missions- The Library

Snack- Conference Room

Music- Kid Town Central

Recreation- East Lawn (Outside)

 

3. Please click here to register as a volunteer. I need everyone who will be helping to do this.

 

4. Finally, send me your t-shirt size so I can order your official "Submerged" t-shirt!

 

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. Again, I am happy to serve alongside each one of you! :)

 

Blessings,

Christi
