We’ve had GREAT success so far with our VBS Move! THANK YOU for all you have done and will continue to do as we move into our final weekend and an AMAZING fall.
We have already put Parkview Kids donations into action by packing 3 Journey Bags for kids that went into emergency care this past week! We have reached 41 Journey Bags – we still need $5,000 to complete our goal of 100 backpacks!
Be sure to mark your calendars for our VBS Closing Night Program on Friday, August 28 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. We will be taking a final offering for kids in foster care and celebrating what God has done over the last 4 weeks. We will have a BMX Biker Show, a free hot dog dinner, inflatables and food trucks for purchasing dessert. Bring your entire family and celebrate with us! If you’d like to volunteer and help behind the scenes please let me know.
If you haven’t already heard there are some exciting changes to look forward to as we launch Parkview Kids this September!
Our Early Childhood Team Gathering is Monday, September 14th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm in the east lobby at Parkview. An email invite will go out next week. Please save the date as we join together to share a meal, connect, get equipped, inspired and of course unveil and hand out our NEW t-shirts!
Staffing changes – There will be some organization changes that will allow us to shift our structure to allow for central support for current and future campuses.
- At the Central level, Lisa Dorman will be programming director over Early Childhood for Orland, Lockport and all future campuses.
- At the Campus level, I will serve as Director over the Area Coordinators at Orland (Nursery (Garden), Preschool (Backyard/Clubhouse), Elementary (City & Alley), Special Needs, Green Team).
These internal changes allow us to be more focused and efficient with our time, energy and resources and produce a more consistent experience for kids and families at each campus.
What does this mean for you? You will not experience any changes except starting in September Amelia Goetschel and Carrie Lyons will together lead the Early Childhood Team and take over this online communication. Each will continue to be your main contact for overseeing scheduling for nursery/garden or preschool/backyard/clubhouse.
Please continue to be consistent and committed in your serving role. We need YOU! We will go back to 5 services AFTER Labor Day weekend. Starting Saturday, September 12th we will have a 3:45pm and 5:30pm service and Sundays will be 9:00am, 11:00am and 5:30pm.
Please pray for our teams as we undergo a lot of change in a short amount of time. We GREATLY appreciate YOU and all that you do for God’s little ones and our Parkview families.
You are more than you know!
BIG hugs and much love,
Acts 17:28, “In Him we live and move and exist.”
