June is busting out all over!! There’s a lot going on at the ROCK this month and throughout the summer, highlights are below:
Our summer Sunday morning schedule will begin June 15th. And that’s when we want to give our faithful servants a high five thank you!! If you have been on our schedule to serve 2 Sundays or more this year, you should’ve received an email from me giving you a high five from us and asking you to enjoy the summer off. In order to fill those large shoes our faithful servants have left, we’ll need others to serve this summer in their place. Got a Sunday or two or five to spare? Sign up HERE to help fill in!
Also on June 15th, since our summer numbers dip (which we have seen start already), we combine our Sunday classes into one class per age group (ex: 1 class of 2nd graders) and that class will meet in the ‘A’ room for that grade. Stop by a welcome desk if you have any questions about where your child should be headed on Sunday morning.
In addition, we’re going to start following a new small group/large group curriculum on June 15th, called Orange. If this summer’s pilot is a success, we’ll see more of Orange in the fall. Orange is what you get when you combine red with yellow. When you paint with red, you get only what red can do. When you paint with yellow, you get what only yellow can do. When you paint with orange, you get new possibilities and vibrant outcomes. We know that family and church are the red and yellow – it’s what we’re going to try to do together that will make our teachings so much more impactful, because they’ll be orange. Watch for new take homes and a fresh look to Sunday morning lessons at the ROCK. Let us know what you think!
We’re off to a fun week at Camp Chestnut Ridge June 23-27 at the same time that MCC is holding it’s first camp of the summer for preschoolers. (contact Stacy Harrell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on either of these offerings)
We’ll be back with a new crew at Camp Chestnut Ridge August 4-8th and will hold a servant training session for the fall on August 17th – all teachers and leaders need to plan to be here for this one – Orange is bringing fun, new changes you’ll want to be prepared for!
Move up Sunday will be August 24th, at which time we’ll “graduate” all of our kids to their next grade level, even though many of the year rounders will already be in their new grade over the summer. Enjoy popsicles on the playground with us after church that morning!
