February Song in Children’s Church

This month in Children’s Church we have been singing the song “We Believe” by Newsong.  We have been given the chance to actually sing in front of the church if the kids can get the song down.  Once you hear 50+ kids singing the lyrics to this song you will say “WOW, I believe!”  So in an attempt to help, here it is with the lyrics.

Fall Festival Help Is Needed!!

As we get closer to this years Fall Festival on October 31st, there are a few things that need to be completed! There are games to cut-out, paint and construct. With that being said, I need your help. This Sunday afternoon we will be working on some Fall Festival preparations.  A jig saw, skill saw and a drill would be great to bring as well for some of the following items:

  • Need to cut-out a rainbow from a 4×8 sheet of plywood
  • Need to paint the rainbow (not with skittles).
  • Need to construct a KerPlunk style game. Directions will be provided.
  • Need some minor maintenance on a putting green.

If you are wanting to help with this shoot me a quick email back at steveblackston@mvbaptist.org and come on out Sunday afternoon around 3:00 ready to work!

Appalachian Trail Copper Basin Crisis Center Mission 2014

Ladies and Gentelmen,

Here is the details for the Copper Basin Crisis Center Mission Project that we are doing this year.  We will be going to the Crisis Center on Saturday, December 6th.  We will be leaving the church at 6:00 AM since this is a 3 hour trip.  The goal is to have things setup and going by 10:00.  We will be leaving around 4:00 and coming back to the church.

There is a form shown below that will allow you to sign-up and select what you would like to do while at the Crisis Center.  I need each person to sign-up with a position prior to going.  If a family of 4 is going to go, I need 4 people to have signed up.  This way I will know how many seats we need on the bus.

One last thing! We are going on a trip to help and minister to the people of the Appalachian area. We are not going on a trip to take photos of ourselves, post photos onto social media or exploit the lifestyles of the people in the area. With that said, I am asking you not to take photos or tweet about what is done there. We will take a group photo while there for a reminder.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
