21:5 PROJECTS | July 29-September 1 | Making All Things New

Visit the Outreach desk this morning to look over the available projects. Talk with the representative at the desk if you have questions. Let’s all get involved as we reach outside our walls and bless our community! Revelation 21:5 And the one seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new!” Then he said to me, “Write it down, because these words are reliable and true.”

If you are interested in participating in the Camp Gilmont project, please sign up in the foyer or online today! There is a waiver that must be signed and returned, so extra time is necessary to get you ready to go. It should be a lot of fun for everyone!

LIHN Training: We also want to highlight the opportunity to receive training to serve in our ministry to those who are temporarily homeless through our ministry partner, Longview Interfaith Hospitality Network. We will have three separate opportunities for training: August 12, 19 & 26. Training will take place in room 118 of the Adult Education Building, and you only need to attend ONE of the classes, not all three. Sign up at the outreach desk today or online at the HUB.

Promotion Sunday | August 19

Promotion Sunday | August 19This is an exciting day when we “promote” the kids to their new Sunday morning classes! From nursery – kindergarten, the child’s birthday must be before September 1 (like the school districts) in order to move up to the next class. In the elementary, the kids move up with their grade levels in the 9:00 am Life Groups, and in 123 and 456 Churches at 10:30am.On that Sunday evening at 5:00pm, parents can register 2-year-olds through 6th graders for the new Awana year. Then plan to stay for the hot dog supper to celebrate! We look forward to a great year of learning with your children!
