Ok, so I fell off the blogging wagon for a few weeks! Isn't life like that sometimes? It's been a busy and exciting time from Palm Sunday and our Redemption presentation, through Holy Week to a glorious Easter and a fun spring break!
The Honor classes for parents and kids got off to a great start last night! Thanks to everyone who participated! I am looking forward to learning with and from you! I'd also love to hear about "honor" in action at your house.
Next week, I will jump back into our Sunday morning review from children's church even though we won't be tying that into Wednesday nights because of the Honor classes through May.
I am so excited that our new Sr Pastor will soon be packing to head this way. I have always had high regard for Mark Lindstrom since our college days and am looking forward to serving with him and under his leadership. I believe that God's has more great days in store for our church, and I feel so blessed to be a part of this church family!
I won't usually do this, but I would like to mention here today that we have several ministry opportunities available with the Grace Kids during Sundays and Wednesday nights. Some of our teachers have had some life changing events happen in the past few months, others have been teaching for a while, there are babies on the way, and I also like to give our teachers the summers off when possible. I need your help to do this! If you, or someone you know, might be interested in serving God by loving His kids, I would love to chat about the possibilities and get a ministry application into your hands. Also, please add this to your prayer list. It is vitally important that we have disciplers for our Grace Kids if they are going to "grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus" (2 Peter 3.18). For the right people, working with kids will revitalize and change your life!
Okay, I think I'm all caught up now!
Wait, one more thing . . .our Spring Family Camp-out is coming up May 14-16 at Davy Crockett State Park! This is a great weekend for families with kids of all ages. $15 per family covers all of your Saturday meals and other activities through the weekend. Some of our plans so far include kickball, a Scavenger hunt, our silly camp-out auction, and much more! Each family is responsible for their own campground fees. I will be happy to talk details with you if interested.
Okay, now I'm really done! Enjoy spring with your family! The things that have to get done (laundry, grass, dishes) will get done - make time for the important stuff!
You are loved!
