Friends,

Time is passing so quickly.  Are you ready for VBS?  I am not, but I am working on it.

Last week I told you about our grandson’s graduation.  This week I am showing you a pic of the graduate and his Mommy.  Love them!

So cute!! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really have been working on VBS.  We start on June 11 so there is not much time left.  But There are great people working with me so I know it will be a fantastic week

If you are doing VBS, be sure to get background checks done on all your staff.  I will attach the necessary forms.  Feel free to ask if you have any questions.  You can also find the forms at http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/resources-2/resources-unrestricted/  Our church is doing SKY.  What are you doing and when?  I have attached the VBS report for this year.

I have mailed out the poster and flyers for the fall convention.  Yours should be in your mailbox really soon.  I have also mailed the flyer for Go Fish For Kids.  Churches in a 50 mile radius of Port St. Lucie will receive an additional mailing with registration forms for GFFK.  Remember that this is a free event.

There are still many library items that outstanding.  If you have signed out a library item(s) and have not returned them, please do so ASAP.  I have requests I am unable to fill.

Don’t forget the free resources available this coming Sunday at the FLA warehouse.  The time is 12-3.  The warehouse is on the back east corner of the campus.  Many items are big and won’t fit in a car.

Father’s day is right around the corner.  I will be posting a few crafts your kids can do for their Dad.

Now to post this on the website and add the attachments.

Until next time, God bless.

Friends,

A lot has happened since I last communicated with you.

My home computer died and I have been working on getting the replacement-a laptop-caught up. Totally wiped out my iPod library.

My office laptop went crazy. Now I am trying to get that replacement up to par. I had backed up most everything, but still a hassle to get all the programs installed. I have had to contact several companies to activate the “one computer only” programs. So much fun.

We really did have fun when we went to Birmingham, AL to see our grandson graduate from Kindergarten. We spent a couple days just enjoying the two boys. I would attach a picture, but that is on my home backup drive.

If you are interested in a great Children’s Ministry convention, KidMin by Group is still offering their early bird pricing. It is in Chicago Sept. 28-Oct. 1. I would love to meet you there. Here is the link. http://group.com/childrens-ministry/kidmin-conference   It is not cheap, but well worth the cost. And being in Chicago, I get to spend a couple days with my daughter at Andrews after the event.

Father’s Day is coming. Here is a sight to some great ideas: http://fatheringadventures.squarespace.com/blog/2012/5/23/to-just-be-with-you-dad.html

I recently found some Scripture cards in Pintrest. I will attach them to the website email. They have a scripture for all 26 letters of the alphabet. Good for kids to learn the Bible while they learn the alphabet.

We are working on doing a VBS next summer for homeless families. We will be coordinating with the Youth department. Our plans are to have a VBS using this year’s program. My next step is to find a place. I am looking a finding a hotel that serve homeless families. We will be in the Orlando area. It has the highest percentage of homeless families in the nation!! If you know of a place, let me know. I will begin actively searching in a couple weeks.

Now for the Tampa Bay Rays game on July 15. A lot has been happening. Pedro Perez has worked out a program with them also. There are different seats and different prices. Our drill teams will be performing pre-game. That is if we sell enough tickets. I have attached both flyers. Spread them around your church!! Let’s make this a great day for our church families and let others know we exist. But especially come out and support our young people. This is quite an honor for them.

The flyers/posters for the fall convention will be ready soon. I have them almost finished then need them printed. I met with the hotel this afternoon. They are giving us a good room rate. We have reserved a block of rooms. Since we are having the convention at Florida Hospital, you will need to make arrangements for housing, but we are doing our best to get you the best accommodations and the best rates. More on that next week. The dates are Sept. 14-16.

Now to get this posted so I can go VBS shopping! US Toy, here I come.

Until next time, God bless

Indigo Christian Jr. Academy…a CREATION Health school

by on May 07, 2012, under Education

Indigo Christian Jr. Academy, in Daytona Beach, FL, has adopted a new way of doing things. Take a look at this video on how a school can take the C.R.E.A.T.I.O.N. Health principles and infuse every area of school life. It’s an exciting thing that’s happening at ICJA. Please pray for them as they continue to work to share the GOOD news of God with their students, parents, and community.

National Day of Prayer

Friends,

I hope you take a few moments for special prayer for our country today.  And every day.

I am a day late, but was in meetings most of yesterday.  Progress made at both meetings.

The other night I was at the Marketing Committee meeting for our school.  It was decided that we would have a VBS this year!!!   I am so excited that my church has taken this step.  It has been many years. We have only been members at this church for a year so it is not because I have been neglecting my duty!  I was asked to be the VBS Director so I have something to do in my spare time.  We decided to do SKY.  So I get to practice what I preach.

I still have……

12 in 12 family edition books available

A few digital copies of K! Magazine.

I just got my copy in the mail, which means the digital copy will be available soon.

Two weeks from today we will be at our grandson’s Kindergarten graduation.  A major milestone in the life of a little boy.

My husband returned from Costa Rica somewhat discouraged with the situations of the 2 families we sponsor.  We are pondering ways to change the approach.

I have been quite remiss in getting the volunteer info from Church Volunteer Central out to you.  But I am now up to date-from Nov.!  I will be posting it the news page with this email.

The site is http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/news-2/

Don’t forget the following dates:

May 19-Special Children’s program in the afternoon at Belleview Church-for children of surrounding churches

July 15-Florida Conference Day at Tropicana Field with the Tampa Bay Rays

Sept. 14-16-Go Fish Leadership Convention at Florida Hospital Creation Conference Center.

Oct. 20-Go Fish For Kids at Midport SDA Church-for kids from the surrounding churches

Oct. 21-Go Fish For Kids at West Palm School-a school day

Oct. 22-Go Fish For Kids at Sawgrass school-a school day

Now to get this posted.

Until next time, God bless
