Vacation Bible School Recap
During the week of June 20-24, we held our Vacation Bible School for summer, 2016. We had
close to 40 children come through the doors for VBS. Each one of them left with a smile every
day. I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped out this year AND to thank all
of those who participated.
Promotion Sunday: Sunday, August 28 from 9:30 -10:30 a.m.
Our annual Promotion Sunday Program will be held on Sunday, August 28th beginning at 9:30
a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. The morning will begin with a time of light refreshments. All
students and teachers are invited to gather in the Fellowship Hall rather than go to their Sunday
School classroom. After refreshments, each of our children and youth Sunday School teachers
will be introduced and new students moving up to a different class will be acknowledged. All of
our adult Sunday School classes are invited to participate in this program, too. All adult Sunday
School class teachers present will also be introduced. Please plan to join us for this special
Sunday Sundae- Sunday Evening Kick-Off Event
We will kick-off our Sunday Evening Fellowship for children and youth ministries with an
intergenerational kickball game and ice cream sundaes for all. (We will be having two kickball
games based upon abilities and/or age groups.) We are asking those who are willing to help us
with donations, needed toppings for the ice cream sundaes, such as whipped cream, chocolate
and caramel, cherries and peanuts, etc.). You may place all donations in the Children and
Youth Ministries Donation basket that will be in the Narthex. The evening begins at 6:00 p.m.
and ends at approximately 7:30 p.m. ALL children, youth and parents/adults are invited to join
us for this special evening.
Operation Christmas Child - November, 2016
It’s not too early to begin thinking about Operation Christmas Child, one of the events with
Sunday Evening Fellowship that all the kids look forward to. This program, sponsored by
Samaritan’s Purse, provides Christmas boxes for needy children around the world. We will be
starting to collect items for the boxes in the month of September. Suggested gifts are: small
notebooks, coloring books, pencils, crayons, washcloths, toothbrushes and toothpaste,
toothbrush holders, combs, small games, and stuffed animals; smaller items that would all fit in
the shoe boxes. The Children and Youth Ministry team has set a goal to collect for and pack
100 boxes. More information will follow in the next communicator.
Parent Consent Forms
All parents and/or guardians are asked to take a moment in time to complete a “Parent Consent
Form” for the up and coming year with Sunday Evening Fellowship. Bro. Eric will have these
forms during the kick-off event for Sunday Evening Fellowship on September 11. If you are not
present on the 11th, please secure a form from Bro Eric and complete and return the form to
him. If you have any questions about this form and/or the need to fill out the form, please
contact Bro Eric.
