Children’s Ministry & Milestones

June 2021

Jill DeCent Children’s Ministry Coordinator

The trees are blooming, pretty pink and white flowers everywhere, warm sunshine, and green grass-Summer is al-most here, and we are reminded how absolutely beautiful God’s creation is! We are winding down another year of Sunday School, with the last session on Sunday, May 23rd. We will celebrate with outdoor fun, and Ice Cream treats for Sunday School participants and their families! Although there were a few ups, downs, and all arounds, we are very blessed with our Sunday School teachers and volunteers-this ministry would NOT function without you, so shout out to James and Lindsay Freese, Ricky Aulie, Linnea Laffin, Jenni Kannel, and Tammy Freeburg-your kindness and faith leadership truly impact the lives of children’s journey and growth in Christ Jesus, thank you! Also, a HUGE thank you to our nursery workers and volunteers so far this year: Karli Nixon, Lily Peterson, Jeni Kannel, Tammy Freeburg, and Jill Mattson. As a reminder, Busy Bags are back, and available for children to use during ser-vices. These will truly be a blessing during those Summer church services, when Sunday School is not in session. They are located in the back of the sanctuary. And now, for the highlight of your Summer…..drum roll please……VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL! VBS will be held on August 2nd-5th, 5:30pm-7pm, and will be the traditional “Family Style” as in years past. This means that the whole family is encouraged to attend. Nursery will also be available for families with infants. The theme is “Rocky Railway”-Jesus’ Power Pulls us Through! Look for regis-tration forms on our ILC website, the church office, or on the table next to the door as you walk in to church on Sun-days. Registration is due by July 1st, to accommodate for supply ordering. Come one, come all, MANY volunteers will be needed for this event. Please contact Jill DeCent if you would like to volunteer. God has been so good-I just feel so blessed to be part of this church and Ministry. Happy Summer, and God Bless!
