The countdown has begun for VBS 2018!! Decorations are beginning to go up, and things are beginning to come together! The call for superheroes has gone out far and wide! With all that said, we still need reinforcements! We are looking for some amazing men and women to help greet these future superheroes (and their parents) at the door, as well as help with registration! We are also looking for individuals willing to help the guides as they lead the kids from station to station, and assistants to help in the stations as well… especially in recreation and crafts! There is no teaching involved, only lending a helping hand! If you think you would be interested in helping in any of these areas, please give me a call at the church, or get with me Sunday morning! Please don’t forget to be praying for the teachers, kids and parents throughout the coming week!
On Sunday June 24th, we will be hosting “Superpals & Pancakes with the Pastor” in the Family Life Center. Everyone is welcome! Children and their families that came to VBS are invited to come back for this special post VBS breakfast. The children are welcome to wear their costumes for this event (no full covering face masks please) and will be performing their VBS theme song on stage that morning during worship. This is a great opportunity to potentially help families that come in during VBS find a place to plug in. Everyone in the church is invited… even if you were unable to help with VBS. Please try to be there to meet and greet these families and make them feel welcome! Breakfast begins at 8:45 a.m. in the Family Life Center!
Looking ahead, July 7th from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. Ron and Missy Harbert will be hosting a swimming party for the Children! This is a family event, and parents are invited to stay and fellowship as the kids have fun swimming! A meal will be served. I will be sending home more information in the next few weeks!
I appreciate everyone’s hard work and support so much! We couldn’t do it with out you! Thank you for letting God use you in mighty ways!
That the next generation may know!

BS is just under two weeks away, and we still have a need for leaders! We are looking for someone to teach the music class for the younger (Pre-K to 1st grade) and a recreation leader! These are such fun classes to teach and easy too! If you would like to teach either of these classes, please get with me a.s.a.p.
This year we will be the only ones doing a super-hero themed VBS, and because of this, we are hoping to have a really “SUPER” TURNOUT AND WILL NEED ALL THE HELP THAT WE CAN GATHER! Also, this Sunday, I will be sending out prayer sheets to begin prayer for VBS. I believe this is an important way to begin preparing for this amazing community outreach!
This coming Friday, June 8th, we will be hosting our first Summer event! Our ‘Parents Night Out’ will begin at 6 p.m. in the gym. We will be serving pizza and watching the movie “Moana”. Parents are asked to pick up their children at 8:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 23rd at 10 .am., we will be holding a Baptism class for children and their families. This class is to help new believers to understand what it means to follow through in Baptism, as well as take a tour of the baptistery area. A light lunch will be served.
For more information on this or other up upcoming events, give me a call at the church!
That the next generation may know.

If you are interested in taking part in this years Superhero VBS, please attend the meeting on Sunday, June 10th at 5:30 p.m. in the Children’s Choir room. If you did not make it to the first meeting, please try to attend this one so that you can receive instructions.
