Friends,

Changes, yes, changes are coming.  I have put off telling you, but now is the time.  Many of you are already aware that I am retiring.  Yes, retiring!  My husband and I are looking forward to being able to minister in other ways and other places.  I am retiring from my job, but not from my passion for children’s ministry.  May 1 is the official date of my retirement.  Until then I will continue with my responsibilities such as VBS workshops, Camp Meeting, and of course, with the move to our new office location.  There will be no time for boredom.

I am thrilled to introduce the next Children’s and Family Ministries Director for Florida Conference.  Judy Smith will be continuing the ministry beginning April 1.  Many of you know Judy from her years of dedicated volunteer ministry to children and families.  She has been a valuable member of my volunteer staff.  I know you will be blessed by her ministry.

Upcoming events:

Vacation Bible School Workshops-two identical workshops on March 22 and 23.  The cost is FREE!  3-6 PM at the conference office. 655 N. Wymore Rd. Winter Park, FL.  I have attached the updated flyer.

Creation Kids Workshop-A VBS based on Creation Health.  March 15, 3-6 PM at Florida Hospital Creation Conference Center.  I have attached the flyer.  Hope to see you there.  Now you have many choices for VBS.  Which one shall it be?

Campmeeting-April 10-13 at Camp Kulaqua.  Reserve your accommodations at http://www.campkulaqua.com/CalendarOfEvents.aspx#April

I have received and posted the mp3’s from Children’s Pastors’ Conference.  You can find them at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/copyrighted-resources/  This is for Florida Conference members only.  If you need the password, email me with your name and church.

I will now send this, post it on the website, then add the attachments.

Friends,

I wish to welcome those of you who are just joining us.  I finally added all those who gave their email addresses at the Sabbath School workshops.  You can always go to the website to check out back emails.  http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/category/children-family/

We had a great workshop at Miami Temple this last Sabbath.  It is always exciting to see people interested in our children and ministering to them.

We also had a training for our young people at GMAA on Sabbath and Sunday.  Darren Casteel and family did a 2 day intensive training in puppetry and face painting.  This is in preparation for outreach ministry  for Impact Miami this coming summer.

Vacation Bible School Workshops are coming.  March 22 and 23 we will be having identical workshops.  The hours are 3-6 PM and the workshop is free.  We will be featuring Weird Animals by Group.  Come and join the fun.  The flyers had given the address of the new Conference office location, but it appears that it will be at our current location-655 N. Wymore Rd., Winter Park. 

Campmeeting is coming!!  April 10-13 at Camp Kulaqua.  Make your reservations soon.  Lodging is filling up.  Great kids programs are planned.

Group Publishing is having a children’s ministry workshop in Jacksonville on April 26.  Check this out.  The cost is $29 per person.  I will be there.  This training is a great enhancement to GraceLink learning styles.  And it is fun!  http://www.group.com/childrens-ministry/workshop-tour?utm_source=CM_WorkshopTour_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Learn&utm_content=Jacksonville&utm_campaign=CM_20140211_WorkshopTour&email=childminflorida@gmail.com I have already registered and hope to see you there.

Friends,

I hope all of you have been warm and powered up this winter.  We were in North Carolina for a few days last week and got to walk and drive in the snow.  They had record cold temperatures, too.  It was 2% one morning.

We haven’t been in that cold temperature for a long time.  The we were privileged to go to our 6 year old grandson’s birthday party.  They grow up so fast.

Upcoming events:

Sabbath School Workshop   Feb. 8 at Miami Temple 2-5 PM.  Hope to see you there.

Vacation Bible School Workshops-two identical workshops on March 22 and 23.  The cost is FREE!  3-6 PM at the conference office.  Not sure at this time which location-current or new office.  I will let you know when I know.

Campmeeting-April 10-13 at Camp Kulaqua.  Reserve your accommodations at http://www.campkulaqua.com/CalendarOfEvents.aspx#April

Would your church like to host a parenting seminar?  Biblical Parenting will be in central Florida May 28 and 29.  Here is the info I received from Scott Turansky from Biblical Parenting: We have a great opportunity coming to Orlando on May 28 and 29 where we’re offering our seminar for free to the church. They would just pay the $250 and we would charge the attendees $20 per person or $25 per couple. We’re already doing an event on Friday evening at the Forest City SDA Spanish church. We’re looking for two more churches.

If you are interested, contact Scott Turansky  at scott@biblicalparenting.org  You can’t beat the cost.  Their seminars are so helpful to parents, grandparents, and hope-to-be parents.

Background checks—Have you done yours?  If not, please do so now.  You can find information at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/free-resources/  The compliance date is long past.  This is REQUIRED by Florida Conference for all people working with our children.

You can now get the children’s version of our 28 fundamental beliefs in pdf format ready for printing.  They are titled FUN-da-MENTALS.  You can find them here: http://kidsministryideas.org/content/fundamentals  And while you are there, check out the rest of the site.  Great information for Sabbath School teachers.

I have a lot of attachments.  Do I dare post all of them?
