Safe Sanctuaries Training
You may notice a few less people in worship today. That is good news! Over fifty adults who volunteer with children and students are in the building being trained to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children. As the leader of a camp for kids in the summer, I have been through the training. As a parent of a sixth grader and a kindergartener, I’m grateful for all the adults who are devoting two and a half hours in our children this morning!
Prayer Wall - WePrayOmaha.com
I want to encourage you to visit our new prayer wall. It is easy to access from a computer or mobile device and is a way we can support each other through prayer. I visit this site each morning and am finding it a great way to pray and connect with others in the congregation.
Pray for our Mission Trips
Our Belize Mission Trip is June 9th to June 17th. We have 15 people who will be providing medical, pharmacy, and optical services to men, women, and children in Belize.
Our middle school mission trip is June 24th to June 30th in St. Louis. We have 35 students and adults who will be serving and growing together.
Our high school mission trip is July 7th to July 15th in Savannah, Georgia. We have 64 students and adults who will be making a difference in the lives of the poor and elderly, forming friendship, and connecting with God.
Vacation Bible School
One of the highlights of every year is Vacation Bible School. Sunday, July 15th to Thursday, July 19th are the dates this year. Save the date! I encourage high school students and adults to serve our children and families by volunteering.
September 9th to October 14th – 40 Days in the Word
40 Days in the Word will be our fall sermon series and small group study. As a pastor, the most common question I get is something like this: “How do I read the Bible in a relevant way so that I can apply its principles to my life?” We will learn the Word, love the Word, and live the Word. New small groups will be forming and existing groups will be restarting. It will be an incredible experience!
October 21st to November 18th
We will spend this time celebrating what God has already done, embrace what God is doing, and dream about what God will do in us and through us during our capital campaign to purchase land and to resource God’s vision for our future together.
I hope to see you Sunday morning.
