We are glad that you have joined us this morning for our services. If you are visiting with us for the first time, we would love for you to fill out a visitor’s card so we can have a record of your visit.
This is a remarkably busy time of the year at our church. If you are looking to get plugged in, now is the time. We have several trips and activities coming up and there are several things you can do to help. We are planning for our vacation Bible School that is coming up soon. We will offer classes for all ages, including Adults, so come and enjoy this time of fellowship and Bible Study. Now is a great time to get involved in a Sunday School class. I am sure we have a class to fit your needs no matter the age or learning level. Please think seriously about coming and joining a Sunday School class. We also offer midweek services throughout the year. Youth and Adults still meet at 7pm through the summer and Awana (kids 3 years old through 6th grade) will start back up in August.
As we head into camp this week, I thought I would share what we will be teaching the kids. We will be focused on seeking the Lord, with our theme being “Treasure Seekers”. As we go through the week, we will be discussing seeking the greatest treasure, which is the Lord. We will teach these kids that seeking the Lord brings the greatest value to their lives far more than any earthly possession can ever do. We will move on to possessing the treasure they seek. It is so much more than a treasure hunt. When they seek the Lord, He will be found and is available to all who diligently seek Him. After they possess the Lord, we will be teaching them to share what they have found. I think we as Christians fall short in this department. The Lord is the one thing that we can share and never run out of. We need more people sharing Christ with a people who are desperate for Him.
Will you please pray for our camp this next week? Pray that souls will be saved and set on fire to serve the Lord and share Him with the world that is desperate need of the “Good News” of Jesus Christ.
Thank you for supporting our kids in this wonderful time of church camp!
There is a meeting tonight at 5 pm for everyone and their parents that are going to church camp. If you are going or if you have a child going, please be here at 5 for the camp meeting. We will discuss a variety of things concerning camp including departure and return times as well as what to bring and what not to bring to camp.
Thanks to everyone who helped with fried pies this past week. The money raised from this fundraiser goes to fund the summer trips. All trips are funded by fundraisers like this and does not cost the church except for the use of the bus or van. Again, thanks to all who helped and to those who ordered pies.
