Rocky Creek Children’s Ministry Update – March 1, 2018

Rocky Creek Children’s Ministry Update
March 1, 2018

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

Note from Joy Regarding the Kids’ Secret Mission Night
Join with other Rocky Creek families of children on Sunday evening, March 18, as we celebrate the ministry and legacy of North American missionary, Annie Armstrong. Not only will our event involve fun facts about Annie Armstrong, but we will also engage in secret family mission projects beyond our campus and will end up at Fuddruckers for supper to eat together while we give reports about our secret adventures. Our event will begin at 4:00 p.m. and will end at 5:30 p.m. Invite other families with children to attend this event with your family. Please sign up by Sunday, March 11, to give us time to make sure we have enough individual mission projects ready for family groups. Go to the link below to sign up as soon as possible.

Praying for you and your families.

Invest in College Students
Do you have an extra bedroom at your house where a student could come and hang out with your family on the weekends? We have 2 guy interns and several girls right now who would benefit by having a family “adopt” them on the weekends. If you are interested but are concerned about how all that might work, just call Joy Emery at 615-364-5235 to talk through the details. Rocky Creek has a suggested guideline to share with you regarding how to make this work for both your family and the student.

Can You Share a Devotional at Upward on Saturday, March 3?
Saturday is the last day of Upward games for the season. Would your family come to our fellowship hall at some time on Saturday to interact with other local families? I would love for our children’s families to take the lead in hosting the devotional time on March 3 for the entire day. It will be good for you to come and meet some of the families who have been coming to our Upward program and looking for a church home. It will also be beneficial for you to attend the end of season event on March 4 to welcome people to our campus that night. Please use the link below and sign up to share a devotional on March 3.
