Our Wednesday night Boost classes start tonight! I hope that school is off to a great start for everyone! One of the reasons we meet on Wednesday evenings to give you a Boost of encouragement and support to get through the week. There are classes for kids, teens, adults, and there’s childcare for three and under! My kids are excited when Wednesday nights are in session. There’s just a different feel to Wednesday evenings, a more relaxed- time to connect- kids hang in the gym-kind of time.
Typically in the past on Wednesdays, you would find me (Tracy) teaching in the Power Plant, but I am actually going to take six weeks and teach an adult class and I’ve asked my friends Kathy Bishop and Jeremy Smith to teach for me the next several weeks on Wednesday evenings. I am going to be facilitating the Intentional Parenting Class that will meet in the room right next to the Power Plant. It’s been something that has been on my heart for quite some time. There are other adult classes offered as well: Journey through the Bible, Financial Peace, and a couple others. We offer different classes for adults throughout the year, so you can find what works best for you.
5th and 6th graders! Starting this Sunday, September 8, Brian and Nichole Bash will be pulling 5th and 6th graders for part of the time out of the Power Plant. Everyone will still start in the Power Plant, then after some all group activities, Bash’s will pull the 5th/ 6th graders to do a cool time of devotions and lesson with them. You will still drop them off and pick them up from the Power Plant, but I think this time with the Bash’s will be really cool!
Kids Choir- Grandparent’s day- October 6- Amy Mead will be having a kids choir to perform on Grandparent’s Day. Typically we have all the kids in the Power Plant go and sing a song, we thought we would make it more open and try something new this year. If that is something your son or daughter really enjoys, please tell Tracy or Amy ASAP. J I always think that those performances do so much for a child’s self-esteem to see everyone cheering for them and smiling at them. Amy always does awesome stuff, so let us know!
Family Hayride- Friday, October 4, 6pm-8pm-Bring your family and join us for some smores and a hayride out at Brian and Nichole Bash's farm!
UPWARD SPORTS- Upward Basketball and Cheerleading registration will open here at the beginning of September! It is one of the most powerful ministries I know! Hopefully you can get involved this year with your child! I love Upward! J
Twice Blessed Sale- September 15-21, 2019- If you’re looking to make some friends or just find some good deals on your kids clothes, you will want to go to twiceblessedsale.org to sign up to volunteer to help! When you volunteer, you get to shop early! It’s totally worth it! J
Annual Volunteer Training- September 25 @ 5:45 pm, September 29 at 8:00 am- If you work in children’s ministry in any capacity at our church or if you would like to, please plan on attending one of these times. The children’s council will bring yummy food for you at each meeting, and we try to make it in one hour. This helps us meet our requirements of training and we would love it if you could make it!
Alabaster- September 29, 2019- Alabaster is a special offering we take twice a year where we collect coins to give to missions. This September our offering will go to help fight human trafficking. This sensitive topic will NOT be covered in Power Plant, we will leave that up to you as parents to cover. We will simply call it an offering to fight slavery, just so you know!
Revival-October 13-16, 2019- Every year our church brings in a special speaker and focus for a few days usually in October. On Sunday and Wednesday night of Revival, we have fun theme nights for kids! Stay tuned!
Christmas Musical- December 8, 2019- Save the Date! Watch for more information to come!
Baptism- the next baptism service is January 27, 2020- If your child is interested, please let me know. We will have a baptism class on Wednesday, January 16 in the Power Plant
Your kids are fun! Thanks for sharing them with me!
