What an amazing week of VBS!!!  We had 78 superheroes fly in to learn how we get our strength from God!!  A HUGE THANK YOU to the 50+ volunteers we had helping out.  We could NOT do this without your willingness to be a part of our craziness ;)  During the week we collected food items and built a “boys” skyscraper and a “girls” skyscraper.  Each day the items were counted to see who donated the most items.  After four days, our superheroes brought 385 items!!  The youth helped by taking all of this much needed food to the Ellis County Community Assistance Center.  Talk about being God’s superheroes in the world!  We not only learned about it, but lived it J  We ended the week with around 40 superheroes, in capes and masks, singing a couple of our VBS songs for worship on VBS Sunday.

To end this busy summer, the Children’s Advisory Board and Youth Advisory Board are hosting “Messy Church Games” on Sunday, August 13, 7-8:30 pm on the West lawn.  We thought a great way to wrap up Pastor Mike’s “messy” sermon series, AND enjoy one last summer fling, AND get messy……would be to invite the ENTIRE church family out for some good messy fun.  Bring your lawn chair & camera for fun socializing, taking pics and of course, gettin’ messy! 

The Education Work area is trying something different this year and having TWO New Beginings!  On August 20 we will hear from the leaders of children, youth & college students, thus Student New Beginnings Sunday @ 9:30 in the Sanctuary on Sunday, August 20.  The following week, we will hear from our adult leaders about all the the adult fall programming options, Adult New Beginnings Sunday on August 27 @ 9:30 in the Sanctuary.  Hope to see you all in church as we gear up for fall!!

Also on August 20 during both services we will be sharing a special blessing for all teachers, leaders and educators as they begin this new school year.  Don’t forget to bring your backpacks to church for a Backpack Blessing too!  A very special church tradition, is to give all of our incoming 2nd Graders their own Bible.  This will also take place during both services on August 20.  It’s a very busy day, but so important in the life of our church and in the lives of our children.  Please come be a part of it!

VIP date to put on your calendar…..WOW will begin Wednesday, September 13, which means KIDS CLUB!

Thank you for caring about the children of our church!

Blessed to Serve -
