Hello again all! Just wanted to let you all know that Sunday, August 20th, will be promotion Sunday for the children’s department! We will be moving on up to our new classes, as well as promoting a few “Children’s churchers” into big church. On that Sunday, we will take a moment to welcome these kids into the congregation and present them with a Bible and a special notebook to help them learn how to listen to the sermon, take notes, and learn as much as they can! We will also have sheets available beginning that Sunday if there are other children who would like to begin keeping a church journal on their own as well or if refills are needed! Each week, the children fill their journals, they can show their updated notebooks to their teacher during Sunday School and receive a small prize or candy. This is a big step for these children, and I hope you will join me in encouraging them to grow in God’s Word!
Saturday, August 26th will be the swim party at Ron and Missy Harbert’s home. The fun will start at 4 p.m. and will go until around 6 p.m. Parents are invited to stay and swim, as well as help watch the kids. Children who cannot swim should bring floaties or life vests for swimming. Come enjoy hot dogs and fellowship!
We are looking for a teacher for Sunday nights to teach the 1st — 4th graders. This is a fun class on Sunday nights and we are looking for someone who wants to go crazy and help the kids to creatively look at God’s Word. We want kids to learn that God’s Word is an adventure and encourage them to dive in as well as share it, too! If you are interested, or know someone who would be a perfect match, please let me know! Sunday evening classes will be starting again soon, and I would love to have the spot filled soon!
Finally, we will be having a Fall Festival meeting/preparation day on Saturday, September 16th. I know it is still a ways away, but I want to give you time to start the wheels a turning”!
That the next generation may know,
