NO VBS Work night This Wednesday!!
Note: New items needed for VBS, volunteers for Sunday school, and summer mission project
Our theme this year is Babylon: Daniel’s Adventures in Captivity. VBS will be the week of July 23-27 from 9am-12pm. Please mark your calendars now so that you and your children can be a part of this fun time of learning. Registration form is now available here.
We are collecting the following: baskets (all sizes), fringe woven blankets and rugs, boxes, and greenery (fake and real). You can bring them to my office and if you want them back be sure to label them. We also need toilet paper rolls and cereal boxes. We DO NOT Work Night this Wednesday!! But after this there are only THREE more work nights – WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
This week we continue learning about the Fruit of the Spirit which will take us through the end of July. Kid Kingdom will be looking at patience and Club 345 will be learning about peace. Thanks to Tiffany for leading Club 345 yesterday. TIFFANY WILL BE GONE THE NEXT THREE SUNDAYS AND I REALLY NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP WITH SUNDAY SCHOOL. If there are no volunteers then I will have to combine both classes which the little kids love and the big kids hate. Please prayerfully consider helping.
Summer Mission Project
We raised $115.00 yesterday for Food 4 Kids! That brings our grand total so far to $942.00!! Thanks to Ryan Bailey for volunteering. You did an amazing job!! Please take a look at your schedule and find the times your child can help. Our times are: 8:45am-9:30am, 10:15-11am, and 12pm-everyone is gone. The Sundays are: June 24, July 1, and July 8.
**I need child and adult volunteers to help this Sunday on the first and third shifts** I have the Lampes down for 10:15-11. Please check your schedule to see if you can help!!
Art and Music Camp
Our first art and music camp was a lot of fun even though we had some excitement with the power going off midway through. Make plans to attend this Wednesday, June 20. Because of the choir banquet the art class will be meeting in Room 102.
American Girl Craft and Activity Club
We had a great time at our first American Girl Club last Thursday and look forward to our next one. We will meet June 21, July 5, July 19, and August 2 from 6:30-8 each night in the Youth Hall. This is for incoming first graders through outgoing fifth graders. As always, I can use help on the club nights. Next week we will be reading the short story, “Kirsten and the New Girl” and making some pioneer crafts.
Our first Lego Club meeting was a blast! We used gears to make a simple fan and then made remote control cars that we raced. Make plans to attend our next club meeting on Thursday, June 28 in the Youth Hall.

If you have gotten an e-mail from MinistrySafe it is imperative that you click on the link, watch the videos, and take the quiz in order to work with Children or Youth in this church. It may have gone into your junk mail so please check there if you haven’t received it. This is a new program from the North Texas Conference designed to stop child abuse before it ever starts. Background checks are only effective if an abuser has been arrested (we will, however, still be doing background checks). This program will help you be able to identify abusive behavior in all its forms and even before it becomes physical. If you have not gotten an e-mail please let me know and I will get one out to you. You have to have completed this test prior to working at VBS – No Exceptions! We are working on developing an age appropriate program for youth younger than 17 who want to work at VBS.
Once you complete the test an e-mail will be sent to me with the certificate showing that you have passed.
This is who I have as having completed the training (besides me, of course):
