Some great kids’ programs planned
The Children’s Ministry Staff will be busy in January. Jan 6-10 they will be in Daytona for the children’s programs for the Southern Union Ministerium. We are expecting 250-300 kids.
Jan. 16-19 several of us will be attending the Children’s Pastors’ Conference at Coronado Springs at Disney. This is the premier training for children’s workers. We are blessed that it is Orlando.
For those who were at the fall convention, you are aware of all the give-aways that I share. Well, I am on my third box for the next events. There are some really, really good items to be given away.
Be sure to get your Year End Reports in. I will attach the form. They must be received by Jan. 31 in order for me to submit the information to NAD
Background checks for everyone working with kids and teens will be REQUIRED BY THE FLORIDA CONFERENCE AS OF Jan. 1. You can get the forms at http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/resources-2/resources-unrestricted/
Send them to Patty, Florida Conference, PO Box 2626, Winter Park, FL 32790. The forms must be accompanied by a check of $10 per person, made out to the Florida Conference. You don’t want to find yourselves coming up short of staff in January.
I have a donated keyboard in my office. I want to find a home for it. The specific of the key board are : Yamaha PSR 330, music cartridge port, recording ability, over 250 instrument sounds, memory, portable stand,
It comes with specific requirements: must be used for Children’s Ministry, must be really needed and will be used, not put in a corner, must be picked up at my office. If you do not need it or will not use it, do not call me. The donor wants this to go where it will be used for children. Call me if you meet the requirements.
I have updated the lending library with several additions. You can find the lists at http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/resources-2/library-by-subject/ and http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/resources-2/library/
I must now get this sent and posted. I will probably not get the attachments posted for a few hours or even a day or two.
Until next time, God bless,
Florida Conference Children’s and Family Ministries
