Parents of Elementary-Aged Kids!

With some kids recently moving up into PowerLine, we now have spaces open for your kids to join the Incredible Islands Weekly Bible Challenges during your time away from church. For more details about this wonderful and FREE option for your children, please see Ms. Lucie. Also, if your child is currently registered but has forgotten his/her password, e-mail or call Ms. Lucie so she can reset the game and get your child involved. Reminder: they earn points during morning services which can turn into tangible rewards if they play the games during the week.

Reminder to all 2015 VBS workers that if you have not yet returned your orange Praise Assembly Staff shirt, please do so. We want to be prepared for the next time we need them.

Save the Date - September 20
