Here are a few dates and items I would like to share with you all. For more upcoming dates check out the recently updated “Upcoming Events” page by clicking the link or selecting the page at the top of the blog.
Family Prayer Night
As we reach the end of our prayer and fasting emphasis we want to be intentional about finishing strong and with something to show for our time. This is one of the reasons we wanted to create a prayer event to help families start or renew their focus on praying as a family. This is going to be a fun and very interactive way to talk about prayer with your kids, but I also encourage you to see it as a tool to start regular prayer times with the entire family. For more encouragement about what and how to pray with your kids, check out Mark Batterson’s book, Praying Circles Around Your Children.
The Children’s Ministry is looking for several new volunteers in our nursery, preschool and check-in/security departments. One of our motto’s in Kidz Express is that there is no Jr. Holy Spirit. Even the youngest generation can form an authentic relationship with Christ and begin discovering their identity as a Son or Daughter of God. This is where you come in. Whether you have never served, have served in the past or haven’t even thought about it before, give the the KidsMin a Test Drive and see what you think. You can help lead the next generation down a godly life-road. Email Pastor Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven’t brought your kids to Express Cadres on Sunday nights now is a great time to start! Most Sunday nights throughout the school year we meet with your 1st-5th graders to go deeper into the Word than we can on Sunday mornings. We start at 6pm and go until 8 and have childcare available for infants-preschool as well. Check out the updated Express Cadres page for memory verses and other information.
Last spring we first introduced the idea of switching our check-in experience for families to an electronic system. We are now in position to start making that switch. In February you will be receiving more information as we move into a trial period and get ready to make the full switch in March.
