C.E. is hoping to start a "Divorce Care 4 Kids" program in the fall. It is in the very beginning stages and Pastor Jeff Little will be assisting.
There was C.E. Meeting on Monday, April 23rd at 6:30. Janet, Almeda, Amy, Tiffany and Pastor Darrell attended. Decorations, helpers, T-shirt design and the mission for this year were the main topics discussed. With the Shipwrecked theme, funds raised will benefit the "At the Lake Ministries" in Erie, PA.
Because of the Memorial Day holiday, our next C.E. Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 29th at 6:30. The VBS Curriculum will be discussed, so we need "all hands on deck" (no pun intended!). Anyone in a leadership role should attend. A crew leader training will also be held at the same time.
