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?

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.
