Two things, nay, three things for you today: two notes and an applause.
Applause. I want to publically thank Leah Johnston and her team of volunteers for doing an incredible job putting together last week’s VBS. It was well organized, with lots of participation, and a great bunch of enthusiastic kids. I’m so pleased to see people taking initiative, catching a vision, and with a little bit of elbow grease, putting together something new and vibrant for the sake of the kingdom. May God bless all those who sacrificed some of their Spring break for such a great ministry. Make sure you take a moment to give these volunteers a high five for a job well done.
Note #1. We have a great resource for families and small groups that’s available for free called rightnowmedia. If you have ever needed a small group video study, or wanted to go watch some Christian media alongside your kids, we have access to thousands of resources that can be streamed online. The church subscribes to the organizations and then passes on the benefits to our members. The only thing you need is a user name and password and you can access the library. If you would like an invitation (or a new invitation) to join rightnowmedia, please send me an e-mail (jeff*rightnowmedia). To have a preview of the site, check out www.rightnowmedia.org.
Note #2. We are looking for volunteers to help “de-clutter” our present building as we prepare to move stuff into storage in the new section of the building. Also, we’re going to need some help painting the hallway near the offices. If you have some spare time and you like sorting through all sorts of junk, give Margo at the church a call and we’ll sign you up. Steve Johnston has also set up a volunteer list at the info desk for people who have different trades that they could offer as a service to the church. Many hands make light work... and it also helps make the project more affordable as we move towards our grand opening.
