Vacation Bible Schoolpandamanialogolowres-s.jpg

August 1-5

Join the PandaMania with us the first week of August each day from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm, or get here early for dinner at 5:30 pm. At PandaMania kids will discover that God has a purpose and a plan for everyone and that he crafted each of us with his own loving hands. Pick up a registration form on the Youth Board and take an extra for a friend! Or send an email to Kerry Paisley at holloway.paisley@comcast.net or Cathy Welch at Cathy.Welch@affiniagroup.com.


Your Suggestions
         Sometime in June I would like to do a potluck dinner so that I can get to know the families and give them a chance to ask questions or share ideas with their new director. I would like to do this on a day where the most can attend, but I know June is a tricky month with graduations and family vacations, so reply to this email with the dates or days of the week that would work best for you.
         For 6-12th graders I would like to get a regular weekly Bible Study going, but again I need to know about the best availability; Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday nights? I'm thinking start about 6:00 pm and go for an hour to and hour and a half, ideas? Let me know so we can get things underway, thanks!

Milestone Ministry

The Milestone Ministry is a way of helping our families connect the faith in their homes, especially at important transitions in their lives.  Each Milestone event happens during the Sunday School hour with Parents and kids.  The Pastor leads the families through an event that helps them connect their faith at this important Milestone in their lives.  In worship, these milestones are celebrated with the entire congregation.
