Inside: 4th of July festivities, CPR training for children's workers, Tribute concert, and Christmas in July...
We had such an incredible week of VBS last week. Thank you to all of our many (68!) volunteers who worked hard all week to make this possible. We were able to host a total of 132 kids last week, and had 10 children indicate that they prayed to receive Christ for the first time. To God be the glory!
This Saturday is our community's Freedom Blast. Festivities start at 7:00 PM. We will have a tent and will be handing out free watermelon. Be sure to stop by and say hello.
Then, on Sunday, immediately following worship, we will have our annual church "picnic" (inside of course because we are in GA). Please bring a side or a dessert to share and come enjoy the fellowship.
Our church office will be closed for the holiday, and we will not have any evening activities on July 5. Enjoy the evening with family.
We have two different CPR and first aid training courses coming up (7/12, 7/22) for everyone in our church who works with nursery/preschool/children's ministries. We want everyone in our church who works with kids of any age to complete this training. The cost for certification is $25 (but you can still take the class even if you don't want to pay for recertification). [Bonus: They will also cover adult CPR!] You can contact the church office or fill out the connect card on Sunday to sign up.
Go ahead and mark your calendars for Friday, July 28. We are excited to welcome the Tribute Quartet to our church. Admission is free but we will receive a love offering for them. We hope that you will come enjoy a night of gospel music with us.
This year, we are trying something a little different...Christmas in July! The season leading up to Christmas each year is provides so many opportunities for giving while July doesn't have nearly as many. In an effort to spread things out, we are moving our Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection to July.
On Sunday, July 30 we will have our collection Sunday. Boxes will be collected and prayed over as a part of our service that morning. In addition to that, you can also pick up items for shoeboxes and drop them in the blue mission bin in the atrium. At 4:00 PM on July 30, we will have a packing party and pack shoeboxes with those individual items you have collected.
