Events and News for the week of May 25-31st:
Matthew 6:33-34 NIV
 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. …
Yesterday Angela Smith was announced as our new Children’s Director!! This is a paid position and will be supervised by the PPR Committee who have pledged full support to her and promised to help her in all areas to enable her to be successful in ministering and directing our children. The PPR drew up new guidelines in February and have given the director all power and authority over all areas of children’s ministry. She was chosen over another candidate who interviewed three weeks ago. Thanks to the PPR for their time, effort, professionalism, and allowing God to lead this process. Pray for Angela, the volunteers who work in this area, and the children.
The Primetimers are going to the Woodbridge Inn in Jasper on Wednesday the 27th. They will meet at 10:15 am in the morning at the church. This trip is open for anyone in the church. For more info, contact Jean Harris!
The Children’s Area is progressing along nicely! The paint is on the walls and the area might be completed before the week is out! Some ladies are buying furniture for the area this week. Soon there will be stories of Jesus and the sound of little ones enjoying the area.
The new ladies fellowship group is meeting at Pete’s Coffee in Buford on Tuesday’s at 6:30 pm. They are studying Mark. All ladies are invited. For more info, contact Karen Bitler or Vickie Garner.
The Administrative Council met this past week and wow is there a lot going on at our church and more things to come! We walked out the door at 9:30. These folks are truly about selfless service to others and Christ. I echo what Kathy and Sara said in church Sunday about the Board having fun but being serious with the business of God’s church. They are dedicated to furthering God’s Kingdom and being the church God has called Bethlehem to be!
