We are going to continue Children's Church (during church service) through the summer, but we need people to help. There is a yellow sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for dates where you can take over the lesson. We can have a packet ready for you with coloring pages and crafts or you can do something on your own. The children love the NIV Adventure Bible which the church has about 6. The focus has been the books of the Bible and their stories, but if you have another idea that is fine.
Kim Coyle is heading up an 11-14 age range youth group. There is a signup sheet in Fellowship Hall for kids who are interested and adults or older teens who are willing to help out. See Kim Coyle with any questions.
Our church will be participating in a packaging event at Kids Against Hunger on Saturday, August 11th. Mark your calendars and plan on joining in this very rewarding activity. If you would like more information, please see Tracy Duvelius or Susan Cormany. Also, www.achildshopeintl.org or www.HungerNoMore.us . If you like, you may also start saving a tube of quarters to donate when we go.
The children of the Vacation Bible School kicked off their annual drive to collect school supplies for area school children. This mission project, started by the children, will help local children in the Little Miami and Goshen school districts. All the stores currently have their school supplies discounted prices. We hope you can pick up some the next time you are shopping and bring them to church and help “fill the bus “! We will be collecting until August 12th .
