Making it work: Being a Faithful Christian in a Crazy, Busy World- during Camp ROAR, I had the opportunity to get a glimpse into how busy your lives are. Between work, kids, church, house, and any other responsibilities you face, your priorities and focus are constantly pulled in different directions. So, I asked myself, how are parents supposed to be faithful Christians when they are so stressed out, busy, and overwhelmed? We are going to be putting on a short class this fall which will take a holistic approach to how we care for ourselves so that we can be more fully present to our kids, spouses, and other responsibilities. This is what I need from you: Tell me two things you wish you had time for. Mandalavallee@gmail.com
Looking toward the fall we are going to have several new initiatives specifically for families! Youth Group is going to look different: we are working on creating a hands-on, family focused, 5:00 service on Sunday nights. Can you imagine: sleeping in on Sunday and still getting to church? Having dinner with your family every Sunday Night and still learning about Jesus? Eating dinner DURING church? Participating in small group conversations every week without having to add an extra meeting? I am so excited to get this going! I hope you are too.
And we will revamp the monthly Friday night young family gatherings. Big 3 Dinners will be back. This fall we are going to be focusing on making church accessible. We want to know what works and what does not. What ideas do you have which can make things work better for your families? What things are we not doing that we should consider adding? Thinks about these questions and come ready to get to know each other as well!
Have a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing summer with your families. And remember to rest!!

7/23 Preschool Teachers Wanted!
I wonder how many of you have watched our children file up the center aisle before the children’s sermon on Sunday mornings and smiled to yourself. How many of you look at those children and think about your children or your grandchildren? Do you feel like you have missed out on helping to teach some of the kids in your life about Jesus? I know some of you do because we have spoken about it. I am looking for two people to join the Preschool Teachers this year. You will be working alongside veteran teachers; you will always be with another teacher and maybe even a teaching assistant. This is your opportunity to lead and to teach the next generation of Christians. They need you!
