VBS FUN SHOP A GREAT SUCCESS
On March 10th Covenant hosted 30 people from 9 churches at a Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus Fun Shop training event. We had a great time learning how to have a successful VBS. We made some super decorations and learned techniques to utilizing VBS to help kids grow in God. A huge thanks goes to Valerie Christian and Victoria Herriott as our 2018 VBS Directors. They were instrumental in helping me gather, organize, and set up supplies for this event. We also had quite a hand from Kathy Dahlman, Jennifer Strouse, and Nita Herrington. And our littlest helpers: Brooke, Kate, Caleb, and Hope Herriott and junior helper Kamron Brice were awesome. The excitement on their faces as they helped put the finishing touches on our sets and decorations made it all worth it. Thanks again to all of you. I couldn’t have done it without you!
VBS IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK
This year’s VBS will take place June 4-7 from 9:00am – noon. It may seem like a long way off but we need to get things moving. Our theme is Shipwrecked and we will have a super-fun nautical adventure. Now is the time to save the date on your calendar and be a part of helping kids grow as disciples and possibly learn about Jesus for the first time. We need all sorts of volunteers including music, Bible story, science, missions, snacks, games, group leaders, group helpers, decorators, prayer warriors, registration, and more. There is a job for every interest. Our directors will be asking people to volunteer over the next month. Please prayerfully consider serving in this church-wide mission opportunity.
SAINTS ALIVE CHOIR TO SING MAY 6th
Our Saints Alive Choir, under the direction of Albert Herrington, will bless us in worship on Sunday, May 6th during both services. The children are working hard on some great new music, and we know you will be blessed in hearing them sing. We ask all of our choir kids to plan to sing in both services. Thanks to Albert for his awesome leadership.
FAMILY PICNIC TO CELEBRATE OUR SUPERBOOK SUNDAY SCHOOL YEAR
On May 20th the Children’s Sunday School Department will host a picnic on the playground. This is to celebrate a fantastic year of growing as disciples. We invite anyone and everyone to bring a picnic style dish to share and join in the fun. We will begin around 11:30am and invite people to join us as the late service concludes. The church will provide beverages, but we need you to bring some fun food to make this a great picnic.
