ONGOING SUMMER MINISTRY WITH OUR YOUNGEST
Sheep of the Good Shepherd will take a break for the summer months after June 9th and will be gearing up for continued ministry this fall. This summer, there is a need for volunteers who love Jesus, love kids and and would like to get involved with a pared down (from SGS) children’s ministry as well as with our nursery. We need smiling faces to enjoy music, Bible story, and art with our kids on Sunday morning. Curriculum and supplies will be provided. Email email@example.com if you are interested.
CROSS TRAINING- PREPARING FOR AMESBURY DAYS
Amesbury Days provides a unique opportunity for us to BLESS our neighbors and community. This year, we will be partnering with some of our neighbor churches in town- the Rock Church, Market Street Baptist Church and Holy Family Parish in the participation of several Amesbury Days Events including Kids Day in the Park and the Block Party (June 27th).
From May 19th to June 23rd during Cross Training, we’ll be preparing teams and plans for our formal participation in events like Kids Day in the Park, the Neighborhood Block Party (June 27th), and other summer opportunities. We will be exploring informal ways that we can get better acquainted with and connected to our community in meaningful ways as we look at the year ahead. We will also be covering these events and involvement in prayer.
We’re on the Move!
