Christian Ed. May Council Report 2015

Christian Education

Vacation Bible School We have volunteers who have stepped forward as leaders in Crafts, Games, Music, Story Telling, and Snacks. We are still in need of people to be on the decorating committee, a Challenge Leader, assist with crafts, music helpers (who can also be helpers to the crew leaders), and more crew leaders, a leader in the early childhood level, and finally clean up on the Friday. With a number of volunteers having very young children we will also need to provide day care and will need someone to oversee that service. Those who help with VBS and share their time and talents are blessed with so much more from the children they meet and the God they serve. Continue reading

Library Corner

A number of books have been put in the library and I’m not sure where they have come from, if you donated books or are donating books please let me know so I can process them properly.

A Shelter of Hope by Tracie Peterson- Is a story of a young girl whose life shadowed by the cruelty of her father and having been deprived of her mother’s love she sets out on a journey to find hope and a future. I am currently reading this story so I can only tell you that I find it very sad that she starts out in the story not able to trust God’s word as true because of the cruelty of her father. How can she believe” in God who hadn’t seen fit to keep her mother alive and neither had He rescued Simone from a fate worse than death.”

We are asking for  your help in reading or crafting with the children only 1 or 2 times during the summer  months. “Many hands really do make light work.” Continue reading
