Another year has crept up on us. And a great year to be living in Florida where we don’t have to shovel snow.
Last week was busy and rewarding. It began in Monterey, CA for the NAD Ministries Convention. From there I went to the Children’s Pastors’ Conference in Orlando. The general session speakers were inspiring. The seminars were educating, and the friends were the best. I have ordered mp3’s of the general sessions and many of the seminars. I will post them once I get them. I have also posted the mp3’s and handouts for the KidMin Conference and the D6 Conference. Florida Conference members will find them on http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/copyrighted-resources/ The page is password protected but Florida Conference members can email me for the password. Just give me your name and church.
The Wilderness Sanctuary is coming to central Florida. I have attached the flyer. You don’t want to miss this. The dates are Feb. 22 to March 2. If you come for the VBS workshop you can also take in the sanctuary. It will be in Lady Lake.
Sabbath School Workshops may be coming to your area! This Sabbath, Jan. 25, we will be at the Jacksonville First Church at 7951 Lenox Ave, Jacksonville from 2-5 PM. This is for all leaders and teachers in Sabbath School from Beginners through Earliteen. On Feb. 8 We will be at the Miami Temple at 9175 SW 44th St, Miami from 2-5 PM. The workshop is free. You will receive great ideas and the chance to take home some great giveaways. But you can’t do that unless you come.
The staff has prepared great workshops for you. You get to learn, participate, and ask questions. And it is FUN!!
Vacation Bible School Workshops are coming to Florida. We are highlighting Weird Animals from Group. Also on display will be Wilderness Escape from Group and Galactic Quest from NAD and Review. Come and join the fun. We will be having identical workshops on Mar. 22 and 23 at the conference office.
April finds us in Campmeeting month. What can be better than spending a long weekend at Camp Kulaqua. Reserve April 10-13 for an inspirational and relaxing weekend. Children’s staff are busy putting together great programs for your kids.
Now to get this sent and posted.

I am hoping you had a great holiday season and are looking forward to a great year in ministry.
I managed to spend a quiet day at the office and actually accomplished getting the KidMin mp3’s and handouts posted on the website. I also got the D6 mp3’s posted but have not yet posted my notes. I hope to get that done soon. You can find them at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/copyrighted-resources/ You will need a password as access is only for Florida Conference members. Just email me with your name, church and email address and I will get the password to you.
This year promises to be another busy year. I will be going to the NAD Ministries Convention in Monterey, CA. I leave from there early in order to attend the Children’s Pastor’s Conference in Orlando. Sabbath School Workshops are on the calendar for January and February. Jan 25, we will be at the Jacksonville First Church and Feb. 8 we will be at Miami Temple. The flyer is attached. Share this with your SS teachers. Let me know how many from your church are coming so we will have enough materials. It is free!
March brings Vacation Bible School Workshops. There will be 2 identical workshops March 22 & 23. They will be at the Florida Conference Office which by then should be in the new location-351 S. State Rd. 434, Altamonte Springs. I have attached the flyer. Please share with your children’s staff. There will be no charge as there will be no meal. The hours are 3-6 PM. We will be going through a day of Weird animals and also featuring Wilderness Escape. If the NAD/Review/Advent Source materials are available by that time, we will also have a kit for you to check out. The title is Investigation Station-Galactic Quest. I have no further information at this time.
Of course, we cannot forget campmeeting! Join us April 10-13 at Camp Kulaqua. More information can be found here: http://www.floridaconference.com/campmeeting/
