Tuesday Tunes is a continuation of musical practice for kids who have finished kindergarten through sixth grade preparing for our AUgust 9 performance of "Down by the Creek Bank." We will practice from 10:00-11:30 a.m. followed by a sack lunch on the playground and time to play. Please be sure and mark your child's lunch with their name or bring their siblings and join us for a fun time! Lemonade and water will be provided to drink each Tuesday. If you are available to help chaperone one or more Tuesdays during musical practice, your help would be very much appreciated. Please see Candi Martin to coordinate schedules.

On Thursdays, we will meet for a free movie at Celebrity Theatres. Popcorn and drink cost $4.

Family Night after VBS is our opportunity to invite the community in to see their kids sing and talk about what we've learned during VBS. After a short program, families will be invited to play games, take advantage of our playground, and get to know each other better. Please make plans to join us!

Wednesday nights we will continue our series on learning truths from God's Word through candy. This past Wednesday, we talked about how bubble gum is great and has lots of flavor, but for a very short time. Then your're ready to toss it out and move on to something else. In the same way, when we pursue things of this world to bring us happiness; we discover those things are fun for a season and then the need becomes evident again. Only God can bring us true joy, peace, and happiness. (Jayson blew the largest bubble out of our boys and Maggie won the girls' contest.) Bring those kids to learn truth by examining candy in relation to the Bible each Wednesday evening!

Thank you to all of you who attended our Kids/Youth ministry safety training! What a great group of people you are to spend that extra time with us. If you work with any child under the age of 18, this training is mandatory to serve in our church - this includes every Sunday School teacher, kids church teachers and assistants, DIGG leaders, Praise Kidz leaders, Cook’s Kids Club workers, camp chaperones for all ages, mission trip leaders, even our games time volunteers and bus drivers! If necessary, we will offer the class again on April 19 immediately following the morning service. Please contact the church office to let us know you will be attending. Thank you for serving the body of Christ and your willingness to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to do a great job!


Every parent wants their son to become a "super man" who acts with Godly character, so start him off with some real-life superhero training at Bravehearted Boys! By the end of this action-packed experience, your boy will be begging to do it again. Through fast-paced games, activities and movie clips, he'll learn:

  • He has "superpowers" from God!
  • How to tackle "villains" like temptation and peer pressure!
  • That God's Word is his superhero training manual!
  • Why mom and dad make awesome sidekicks!
  • It's more than a fun event. It's an unforgettable connecting experience you can't afford to miss!

Cost: $15 for father & son, $5 for each additional family member.

Cook's Kids - February 2015


Cook's Kids started the year with our January Cook's Kids Club. Each child worked to memorize Jeremiah 33:3 and will be responsible to quote it in February. Each month, we will work on different scripture passages and every child who can quote all six in June will be awarded a special event to attend. Our next CKC is on February 13 and we will be focusing on showing love to others. Be sure an make your reservations before midnight, February 8.


Kids-church-156x133We will launch our new Kids' Church on February 8! Our kids will have an exciting time to dig deeper into the lesson of the week that was introduced in their Connect Group. Be sure and send your first through third graders to this time designed especially for them. If you enjoy working with kids, this is an opportunity for you. We still need four teams to work in Kids' Church so we can have an eight week rotation. See Sharee, Rebecca, or Penny if you are interested in helping.
