It is time again for the Mother’s Day Luncheon on Saturday, May 9 at 12 pm. Everyone is invited: husbands, children, grandchildren, siblings, and friends. The theme this year will be TEXAS. Please share with us from where and how you or your ancestors came to Texas. If you have pictures please bring them. If you plan to attend, please let us know how many in your party in order to plan for enough food. You can contact Alana in the Church Office.
Starting May 31, on Sunday mornings this summer from 9:30-10:30 am at Christ during Cross Culture Thailand Vacation Bible School, children age 3 – Grade 5 will explore Thai culture, experience God’s love for all people, and get excited about their walk with Jesus. The Bible-based, faith-igniting crafts, drama, games, missions, music, and snacks at Thailand Trek will be a world of fun, an unique opportunity to learn more about Christianity in the country of Thailand and how we as a Church support the Thailand Children’s Mission. The Bible Adventures from God’s Word about Creation, and Jesus’ Death, Resurrection, and Ascension, will help the children discover that the God of this universe is real, love, forgiving, and forever. The youth will once again help with various aspects of the VBS activities during their Bible Study of The Story. Please contact Jordan for more information on how to get involved in 2015 Thailand Trek VBS.
