Happy Mother’s Day

“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” (Proverbs 31:10) We are thankful to the Lord for the ladies of our church who love the Lord, live honorably, demonstrating their faith in their home, their community and their church. Today we honor all the ladies of our church family and guests who are with us with a special gift as you leave the service this morning. It is a small token of our love and appreciation for you.

Time is Running Out On Cardinals Tickets

Tuesday, May 21 we will have an evening of family fun and fellowship at Hammons Field to watch the Springfield Cardinals take on the Tulsa Drillers! Join us for a relaxing evening to kick start our summer season! You can purchase your tickets at the Info Hub or by selecting “events” on the Realm Connect App then pick them up at the Info Hub in the lobby. Tickets must be purchased and picked up at the church no later than next Sunday, May 19.

Countdown to Vacation Bible School

It’s just three weeks from today until Vacation Bible School with Steve Harney of Cool Kids Ministries. VBS begins Sunday morning, June 2 and continues during that evening’s Family Service, then nightly through Wednesday, June 5. Families are encouraged to attend this year’s VBS, which is aimed at kids and teens ages 3 through 12th grade! Steve brings mind-blowing Gospel magic, digital puppetry and ventriloquism all designed to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the truth of His Word. It’s not too early to register for VBS this year, which you can do at the Info Hub online or in the lobby.

Even though things will look a bit different this year, we still have a great need for many volunteers to help run VBS! There is a VBS Workers Interest Meeting tonight following the Family Service in the Chapel. Even if you can’t be at VBS, there are ways you can be involved to help make this a great year of VBS!

Memorial Day Picnic

Our annual Memorial Day Church Family Picnic is coming in just two weeks, on Sunday afternoon, May 26. Bring a full meal, enough for your family and some extra to share, and we will put it all together for a delicious picnic dinner. We will be meeting at Lake Springfield Northwoods Pavilion from 4-6PM. Bring your camp chairs, outdoor games, and let’s have a great time of fellowship together!

Camp Scholarships Needed

Kids’ lives are changed, and many get saved through the ministry of summer youth camp. The price of this summer’s youth camp has gone up considerably, and as a result, the need for scholarships is as acute as ever. If you would like to help a young person go to camp, add your gift amount to your regular giving (through Realm, the website or by envelop giving) and note that it’s for camp scholarships. Thank you for your investment in our young people.
