Youth Baptism will be offered on Sunday, May 10. As we draw closer to this date, I am asking each young person who has a sense that God is calling them to be baptized to fill out an information sheet including their testimony. I will need these sheets back by Sunday, April 12. I will be handing the sheets out to 5th & 6th grade classes on Wednesday night and Sunday morning, or you can just ask me for one.
Once I have your young person’s information/testimony sheet, I will schedule a time to meet with them to talk and pray about their faith journey with Jesus. If your child is not ready to make this step of baptism, I do not want them to feel pressured to do so. It is their journey with Jesus—some are ready now, some will be ready at another time in the future. Pastor Wally will be teaching on Baptism and Communion on Wednesday, March 18, during Collide 56 (6:30-8pm). I encourage all our 5th and 6th graders to attend, even if they are not ready to be baptized. It is a wonderful teaching time and a great opportunity for them to connect with the Lead Pastor of our church.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Preparation for this summer’s VBS Everest is well under way. We need you! First, we need you to be praying about this ministry and for the children that will fill our sanctuary July 13-17. Second, we need station leaders (teachers) for various stations. Third, we need crew leaders. If your heart is being touched to be a part of VBS 2015, please contact me or Julie Bailey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I would ask that you continue to pray for the kids ministry at Pearce. A lot is happening in our kids’ lives. It is a blessing for them to have a safe place to learn and fellowship. If you have any questions about Sunday School, Wednesday night kids’ programs, Kids’ Gym, VBS 2015, or the nursery, please let me know.
