3 Things To Make The Backyard Fun!
1. Make sure you incite laughter in your classroom.
2. Make sure you don’t take yourself so seriously.
3. Make sure when parents pick up their children and ask, “Did you have fun today?” that the answer is “yes!”
We are starting a new memory verse this month! Check out all the fun activities Lisa Dorman put together and worship songs here: https://parkviewec.wordpress.com/category/curriculum/
Speaking of fun, we will have our Early Childhood Team Summer Celebration this Thursday, June 12th from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Orland Campus. If you did not respond to the email invite please do so by Monday. THANK YOU!
Let’s Celebrate! Meet our Volunteers of the Week….Diana, Caleb and Crista Harmon!
The Harmons started serving in December 2009 and now serve every Sunday at 9am in our purple and yellow rooms. The Harmons are great at making sure everyone feels welcomed and loved. They are incredibly dependable, thoughtful and create an unforgettable experience for the children. They are great leaders! Thank you, Diana, Caleb & Crista, the best is yet to come!
Did you know our Early Childhood Team is made up of over 400 people and three different types of teams;
1. Team Members/Team Leaders/Coaches
3. Standby (people who are only available to serve during the holidays and summer).
Praise God for ALL of you!!!!
To keep everything running smoothly we have put Service Coaches in place within the last year. Our service coaches oversee the entire ministry during a service hour and are there to help YOU. Please save their cell number in your phone. I have very limited access to email, phone and texts on the weekends. If you have a last-minute emergency and you are unable to fill your important role for the weekend and cannot request a sub using our on-line scheduler (it doesn’t work if it’s 48 hours before your serve date) PLEASE contact your Service Coach below, it’s extremely helpful.
Saturdays 5:00pm and 3:45pm (We have two coaches for Saturday, they currently rotate every other week)
Jen Christensen 815-534-0947 (Jen is ON for tomorrow, June 7th)
Carrie Lyons 630-306-8861
Sundays 9:00am Lorie Creedon 708-280-4368
(Lorie coaches every other Sunday morning, she is off this Sunday, June 8th, so in her absence contact Jill 708-257-8868)
Sundays 11:00am – Tonya Hoots 815-955-5035
Sunday Nights 5:45pm – Adrienne Trent 815-302-1163
The next time you serve make sure you, as the leader, have fun! You set the tone. Fun is good!
My prayer is that we will be a a source of strength and encouragement to everyone we meet along the way. Especially those we meet in our Backyard hallways and classrooms. : )
Make it a great day and I look forward to seeing YOU soon! THANK YOU for being a part of what God is doing at Parkview.
