Summer is a very busy time of ministry here in Tucson! We are preparing to host our International Bible Conference in just a couple of weeks. Then a few weeks, later in July, I coordinate our week of Vacation Bible School, which is always a highlight of the year for the children and families in our congregation. I have come to the difficult realization that it is unrealistic for me to keep up with weekly blog posts, as well as dedicate the time needed to plan and prepare for these summer ministries.
I have decided to take a break from this blog for the next two months. I know many of you are following my lesson plans on a weekly basis in your churches, and so I apologize for leaving you hanging. Of course you are welcome still follow the lesson schedule that I have posted. When I return to the blog in August, we will begin a series of lessons on Creation, which includes a lot of fun, hands-on, science activities.
I also have an exciting new ministry announcement to make! At the beginning of this year, my husband and I were asked to pioneer and oversee a new ministry for children in our congregation. We now have a Wednesday night Bible Hour called Quest 119. You can read more about it here. Children are divided into grade level classes, for engaging Bible Study lessons. After four weeks, we are already seeing the children grow in their desire to learn and know God's Word, which is incredibly exciting!
Currently, our team of teachers and I are developing the curriculum that we are teaching. It is a unit of study called, "What's So Great About Your Bible?" We plan to publish the curriculum, and make it available for you to purchase. I will be sure to let you know here on the blog when it is available!
I hope you all have a blessed summer. Thank you in advance for your prayers and support. I will still be active on social media, so if you follow me there, you can catch some ideas and stay connected. Otherwise, Lord-willing, I look forward to connecting you all again here on the blog in August! :)
