We had a wonderful time at our Women’s Retreat at Lighthouse Christian Camp in August! Thirthy-three women attended. Dr. Joyce Wagner challenged us in the morning, I spoke at noon, and Dr. Gina Teresi shared in the late afternoon. I have been hearing great things from the women who attended; they felt like they had time to stop and connect with the Lord and each other.
I also want to encourage you to come to an Open Forum on Women’s Ministry here at Pearce. We want to share what is happening and hear from you as well! The forum will be on Tuesday, September 22, at 6:30pm in the Friendship Center.
Also, save the date for a Women’s Brunch on Saturday, November 7, from 10am-noon. Dr. Deana Porterfield, RWC President, will be our guest speaker.
Pearce Kids’ Ministry will be in full swing later this month. Check out our Kids’ Ministry schedule for details.
I want to highlight what the kids will be covering in Sunday School this fall. From September through the end of November, our kids will be covering three units from the book of Genesis:
- Unit 1: THE GOD WHO CREATED US
- Unit 2: THE GOD WHO CORRECTS US
- Unit 3: THE GOD WHO CALLS US
Kid’s Worship begins on Sunday, September 20, during the 10am worship service. Parents can sign-in their kids before the service (at the back of the sanctuary) and sign them out in Parmerter Chapel. To allow the kids to participate in intergenerational worship, children not be dismissed until right before the sermon. The message during Kids’ Worship will be geared for kids’ from kindergarten-4th grade. Remember to check the Kids’ Ministry schedule for dates: we will not hold Kids’ Worship on holidays or on Communion Sundays. We want the children to be part of the whole service on these special Sundays. Kids’ bags will be available on the Sundays when Kids’ Worship does not meet, and Children’s Moments will be offered during the service.
Camp Wednesday and Collide 56 start up on Wednesday, September 16. We are looking forward to another great year of Wednesday nights, where our kids are challenged to live for Jesus through stories, games, prayer, and fellowship.
Thank you to all who have joined the Kids’ Ministry team! Please be praying for our children, their families, and our ministry leaders. Pray that in all that we do and say, Jesus would be at the center and that our kids can be nurtured and challenged in a holy, healthy community. If you have any questions, please contact me!
