The kids have their own special fellowship area now (at the small brown tables in the back of the regular fellowship area) to eat, play games, and hang out. We will get a “Kid’s Corner” sign on the wall in the next few weeks. There are games back there to play at the tables or in the hallway. A new game will be added each week for the next month and recommendations are welcome. See Mrs. Heiser if you have a game you would like to see back in the Kid’s Corner and it might show up!
Is is time to start packing Christmas shoe boxes for children around the world, in partnership with Samaritans Purse. What a joy! If you have any questions about the shoe box ministry, please see Joyce Krull.
Please keep our Mexico Missions Team in your prayers. Pray for continued health and peace as they prepare for this journey and for the Lord’s covering while they are away. May their hearts and the hearts of those they server be impacted in a new way by the love of God! The team is excited to go down and server the people in Mexico and they are so grateful for your continued love and support along the way! They will go down as an extension of you, for the glory of God!
The Asante children’s choir from East Africa will be at Dayspring on Sunday, April 26th, 6:00 pm for a special concert. Please sign up if you are able to host some of the Asante children and chaperones while they are in the area on April 23,24,25 (Thursday and Friday night). See Amanda for host family information.
If anyone is interested in serving fellowship snacks one Sunday each month, please see Amanda. Serving snacks is a pretty easy job to do, but it is also a great chance to fellowship and serve here at Dayspring.
As many of you may already know, we will not be having a Seaside beach retreat this year. As Pastor Skip often says “God is up to something!”, and in this season it is something new. We know that the retreat has been a blessing to many in the past and we want to encourage anyone who desires to take a personal retreat to do so. Grab some friends, pick a location, and go! We are praying for God to lead us and bless each of you as we step into this next season. To Him be the glory!
Something New: We have several Dayspring Ladies Night events scheduled at the church starting April 17th. We will be sharing details about these events in the coming weeks.
If you have any questions, please see Amanda.
