Thank you so much for your overwhelming support of Children’s Ministry and for appointing me as Children’s Director! I am so excited to continue on this journey that God has been calling me to for quite some time. Many fun and exciting things are in the works for the summer, and I want to fill you in.
We averaged 95 students in attendance each day, which does not include our member volunteers’ preschoolers and nursery-aged children. Thanks to the 27 adult volunteers and several youth, over 100 children heard the Gospel each day! A special “Thank You” to Tonja Adams, VBS Director! She served tirelessly from about February through this past week, ensuring that through prayer and seeking God’s will, VBS would be a success…AND IT WAS!
We have 12 campers and 3 sponsors attending MetroCamp 2014 at Riverbend Retreat Center in Glen Rose, July 2nd-6th. Thanks to the many love offerings given and your participation in our fundraiser breakfast, the cost is going to be minimal for each camper. Thank you, church family, for your financial support! Even more important than your financial support, I want to ask you to pray for each person attending camp. Please begin to pray now that God will shape and mold each heart in preparation for the message he has for each participant. If you would like a list of names, so that you can pray for specific campers, please contact me or the church office.

On Wednesday night, we will continue our study on “The Armor of God” and the importance of having “fitted feet.” (Ephesians 6:15)
