6-21-17 CMUMC Updates

WOW!! If you have missed the VBS pictures I’m posting on Facebook, let me just say it again … WOW!!! Brandy Davis has created an AMAZING Vacation Bible School Ministry and this year, 54 kids are excited about catching the amazing wave of God’s love!  (Last year we had 45!!)  We also have 30 volunteers (17 youth and 22 adults, last year we had 30!) and it is soooo exciting to see our youth work with solid role models to SERVE our children!
 
This is one of the most IMPORTANT outreach ministries we do because it gives kids the experience of learning about Jesus in a loving, safe, supportive environment that they’ll REMEMBER all their lives!  And to run a successful ministry like this takes ALL HANDS ON DECK and I want to thank EVERYONE because this truly has been an event where so many people have done something to help!  Whether you’re leading one of the 6 stations (6x a day to 6 different groups!), working in the kitchen (serving snacks all night!), acting as team leader or helper, Gage has been an AMAZING puppeteer, Kelli has done  great job with the music, if you brought supplies, helped with SET-UP … YOU ARE ALL TRULY INCREDIBLE!
 
I also want to say a SPECIAL thank-you to the amazing MEN who have been so terrific!! Jamie, Jay, Joel and Jason have worked so hard and it’s EXCELLENT to see good men be such great role models!  THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!!
 
VOLUNTEERS PLEASE WEAR YOUR 
TEE-SHIRTS TO CHURCH ON  SUNDAY!!
 
VBS MISSION PROJECT … the kids at VBS are collecting their loose change (ann they’re bringing $$ from their own piggy banks!) for the Methodist Children’s Home in Waco. This home provides residential and foster care for kids, and each team is competing to see which of the 6 teams can fill up their sand bucket the most!  If YOU would like to throw in YOUR loose change (or bills or checks!!) please bring it Sunday … it’s SUCH a great cause!
 
THIS SUNDAY NIGHT THE FUN CONTINUES … the 10 Commandments WATER BASH, Sundays, June 25-July 23, 5:30-6:30
(Brandy is a SAINT – be sure to tell her so!!) This Sunday night kids in K through 5 will come for a lite dinner at 5:30 then have a lesson on the 1st 2 commandments … they should wear their bathing suits UNDER their clothes because after the lesson, it’s ALL WATER FUN!  It’s ALWAYS better with friends so be sure your kids invite their besties!
 
THE CREW MEETS SUNDAY NIGHT, 5:30-7:30 …
The CREW also meets on Sunday night and their activities/dinner will be completely separate from the kids. This is an age where it’s MUCH BETTER with friends so … Brenda has a GREAT surprise for the person that brings the most friends!
 
THE CREW … Lock-In, Friday, July 21st, 8pm – 8 am
Our youth have worked sooooo hard during VBS that we’re going to treat them to an AWESOME night “in” … stay tuned for details and tell friends to SAVE THE DATE too!
 
SUMMER IS FLYING BY and we continue our sermon series on the EXODUS … this week we look at how God delivers the Isrealites from bondage (10 plagues) so you’ll want to read chapters 5-13.  You can also always listen to sermons you missed on the website (I record them at home so the sound quality is better!).
