Children, Youth, and Family Staff Update
This month, the personnel committee and pastors will finalize the position description for a fulltime Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministry. We hope to begin interviews soon. Our goal is to have the position filled well before the 2019-2020 program year begins in September. If you know of qualified candidates for this position, please share the information with them as it becomes available. Most importantly, please pray for the person who will come to us, and for all those involved in the search and discernment process.
Please take our Vacation Bible School Survey!
A couple of things have thrown a wrench in our usual VBS plans. First, the dates that PRLC families normally prefer for VBS (the first full week after school ends) have been filled with snow make-up days. Since the next week includes a holiday, we are proposing July 8-12 as tentative dates. We will need to rely heavily on volunteers In order to have a successful VBS, especially because we are currently without a dedicated staff member. It may be that a year off of VBS is what is called for, but if we have enough interest, we will continue. Please follow this link to take the survey, so that we can determine the feasibility of VBS this year. Thank you!
Congratulations to our nine 8th grade students who affirmed their baptisms at the Easter Vigil: Aaron Cornell-Maier, Einar Ogle, Zoey Hogan, Eliana Megargee, Trygg Magelssen, Carys Davis, Lindsey Wilder, Luisa Miller, and Sonja Miller. We will honor them at a banquet during Bread for the Journey on Wednesday, May 15. Come celebrate, hear a bit about their faith journeys, and help us welcome them into full participation of our PRLC community!
Newly Painted Youth Room
If you haven’t wandered around the church lately take a peek inside the Youth room and the Tower room. At our March confirmation retreat we had over 20 youth painting the Youth Room and the Tower Room to renew the walls and make the space their own! We had a fun weekend learning about God, playing sardines, and bonding as a group. A huge thank you to Kari VanSanford for designing and helping to paint our Youth Room Mural. The mural is a beautiful depiction of our baptismal promises:
- To live among God’s faithful people,
- To hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper,
- To proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed,
- To serve all people, following the example of Jesus,
- And to strive for justice and peace in all the earth
