I can do all things through Christ who strengths me. Philippians 4:13
These are the Children in Action motto and scripture. Will join me in focusing on these as we prepare for our new program?
CHILDREN IN ACTION/MISSION FRIENDS
We are quickly approaching the beginning of our new children’s ministry program, Children in Action/Mission Friends! On Sunday, September 7th at 6:00pm, you are invited to attend a kick-off party! Mission Friends encompasses children 3 yrs to Kindergarten. Children in Action is for children 1st-6th grade. While the kids are enjoying fun activities and snacks, we will hold a parent orientation and registration. Please make it a priority to attend this meeting. Your child must be registered in order to participate in this program on Sunday evenings. There are many things that must be planned with the correct number of children in mind. Plus, we will need to order a vest for each child.
ONE MORE PLEA…ARE YOU BEING CALLED INTO CHILDREN’S MINISTRY?
Although there has been an inquiry here or there, we are still searching for people to take over the Pre-K/Kindergarten Sunday School class that Robert and I are now teaching. If you are interested but not completely sure if this area of ministry is where God is calling you, we can certainly attempt a trial run! Please contact me if you are interested in serving!
