The countdown is on!
By the time you read this it will be about….
17 days until the last day of school! Even if you aren’t in school anymore, there always seems to be some excitement associated with the start of summer activities and long, warm days ahead. Can’t wait!
34 days until the 5th Graders promote to the Youth Department! This is a time of mixed emotions for the kids, parents and church staff. (Chris is worried and I am crying….Just kidding!) Fifth graders will promote on Wednesday, June 6th with their first night in the youth group with Chris. I’m excited for these youth, but it is bittersweet sending them to the next level. So proud of them and what is ahead!
66 days until VBS!! Really? Yikes! Haha VBS is a touch early this year due to some calendar changes at camp, so please note that. All of our kids who are 4 years old through those who have just finished 5th grade need to get ready for our “GAME ON!” VBS week July 8-12 @ 6-9 PM each night. Adults and youth can sign up now to help in any/all areas, VBS shirts for the entire church family (kids to adults) will be able to be ordered soon (watch for the foyer display) and online registration for kids will be up and running at the start of June. Please start praying about VBS now as we prepare and plan—and mark your calendar for one of the best weeks of the summer!
73 days until Kids’ Camp! All of our kids who have recently finished 3rd-5th grades are invited to a time of fun, games, swimming & discipleship as we head to the Laclede County Baptist Camp in Stoutland July 15-18. Forms for camp will be on the bulletin board above the clipboard table soon and we want to have every eligible camper come with us to camp this summer. (Kids who have finished 6th-8th grades are also able to attend this associational camp July 18-21.)
79 days until Calvary Littleton VBS! This will be our second year with Calvary and we look forward to heading to Colorado July 21-21 to help run a four day VBS with our sister church. There is still time to sign up to join us on this important and fun mission trip—but do so by May 20th. See information forms in the church foyer or come and talk to me or one of the church staff.
That’s quite a countdown! I hope you all are having a great start to the month of May and that you will be in church each week to be encouraged through worship and interaction with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
