Greetings everyone! There are some really great things happening within our youth ministry programs!

VBS Update:

Save the Dates! Our VBS program will be at Lee Church from July 8 to July 12 from 9-11am. The theme is “Everywhere Fun Fair-Where God’s World Comes Together”  The children will be learning about how we can be good neighbors, even to those who are in different countries! We have several volunteers already signed-up, but we need more help! Many hands make light work and you don’t have to teach! Whatever your gifts are we can use them! If you are available and able to help out, please contact Linda Martin our wonderful VBS coordinator at linda.c.martin at comcast dot net or 6zero3-77five-046five.

Sunday School News:

Christian Education has decided that we will combine our CE volunteer appreciation day and Children’s Sunday. We will be working with our children throughout April and May to put together the worship service. Each age group will have a specific part of the service. Teachers will be mailing out letters explaining the specific details.

Our planning has led us to June 23 as our Children’s Sunday worship service. This way we can celebrate our youth ministry as a combined church family at 9:30 am! We will practice with the Sunday school children/ teachers on June 9, 2013 at 9:30 am. Look for some special surprises for all those who help with developing our children into God-loving people through CE.

Sanctuary Renovations will impact the Sunday school classrooms. Classroom 1 (k-2) will be moving to the Music Room when worship is moved into Fellowship Hall on May 26. Otherwise all the other classrooms will remain the same.

We were able to collect $25.00 as a group for the One Great Hour of Sharing on Palm Sunday. Thank you to all those families who contributed to the mission. I know that next year we can beat that number!!

Don’t forget to sign up to help with Summer Sunday School! We will be offering Sunday school for 6 weeks over the summer starting on July 21. This is a one-room classroom setting and will give us an opportunity to continue to minister to families. The sign-up sheet is in Fellowship Hall.

Youth Group News:

As I write this for the Open Door, we have yet to participate in the Big Day of Serving! I will have the youth share what they did and how it has opened their eyes to the needs of our neighbors in the next Open Door.

We have taken some time to help with cleaning up the garden area in the front of the church and will be assisting Hillary Myers in some planting to make it an attractive place to enjoy God’s creation!

Upcoming Dates and Activities:

May 4, 2013 Big Day of Serving

May 17-18 Assist with Plant Sale

May Christ dwell in your heart so that you can share His love with others!
