Refuel Your Faith ... VBS ... Kid's Summer Programs
Dear Immanuel Family:
This weekend is big! As we celebrate Father’s Day, we also want to challenge every dad, every man, every Christian to REFUEL THEIR FAITH. So here is the plan.
To encourage us, inspire us, and equip us, we are excited to welcome back Stan and Maxine Toussaint. Stan will be speaking three times this Sunday – During Sunday School at 9:30 AM, in the morning service at 10:45 AM, and for the evening service. The time for the evening events begins at 5:00 PM with a CHURCHWIDE PICNIC featuring the grilling talents of Mike Henry. We are nearly sold out of tickets for the meal, so call to secure your place at the table. There will be some fantastic and fun music times and then a final message from Stan after 6:30 pm.
Pray for a wonderful time of renewal and rekindling of our commitment to be strong in our faith so that we will know God’s blessing and make an impact in the world.
And let me highlight two other important events on the horizon …
Our VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL will be June 25-28 (Monday thru Thursday) from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM. However, don’t miss out on the dinner to be served each night from 5:30 PM until 6:20 PM by Anthony and Raylene Nevi. It’s only $2 a plate … and first time visitors each free! Our theme for the VBS is IncrediWorld Amazement Park: A Thrill Ride Through God’s Creation. The curricula is written by Answers in Genesis, and we have classes for all ages including ADULTS! Bring the WHOLE FAMILY … even better, bring ANOTHER FAMILY as an outreach in sharing the gospel. You will have an INCREDI-WORLD time!
Also … get your children registered for our Kid’s Super Summer Bible Studies! The program runs each Wednesday from July 11 to August 29.
- For Grades 1-3 the study is called My Awesome Adventure which teaches the basics of following Jesus and what it means to be committed to Him. (Book cost: $5)
- For Grades 4-6 we are using a Kay Arthur study called Bible Prophecy for Kids which explores the truths about what God says about the future with the detective team of Max, Molly, and Sam (an amazing beagle). It will be fun and fundamental for our children’s spiritual growth. (Book cost: $5)
- For our pre-school and nursery kids, we have a special study time of The Lord’s Prayer planned using clear and simple instruction only with practical object lessons to captivate our kids hearts and imaginations. (No cost)
See Becky Henry for further details.
Looking forward to great times for God and His church this summer!
