Parents! Summer Reading and Book Discussion

Parents and grandparents! This summer, Children’s Ministry will be focusing on honor in their Sunday morning classes. We will be using The Honor Club Curriculum written by Dr. Scott Tuansky and Mrs. Joanne Miller.  

To accompany this curriculum we are selling the parent resource book, Say Goodbye to Whining, Complaining, and Bad Attitudes…in you and your kids!  This book will be sold for $10 every Sunday in the Connector Hall from June 4th thru August 13th. Or click here to purchase your book online.

Parenting is the most important job given to us, but it’s hard and many times frustrating. Learn how to instill honor into your family life, and win the war on whining, bad attitudes, meanness, and bickering.

Pastor Matt Guertin and his wife Devon will host a discussion time on Tuesday, August 8 (childcare provided - look for registration soon). This will be a time to share your own thoughts and ideas on the book. Time will also be spent introducing you to several resources to help parents come together, and support one another during these childrearing years.

Questions? Contact Julie Hazlett here.

Simply Socials - Summer

Relationships are central to all God is calling us to be and do!

That’s why we’ve marked the month of July as Simply Social month! All month long there will be opportunities for you to be “simply social” and connect with others in this family of faith!

Here is what you can expect:

Sunday mornings – Summer treats under tents in the outdoor courtyard between services. Stay after worship or come early and make new friends while enjoying fun food and old friends too!

Simply Socials in homes - Throughout the month of July several members throughout the region are opening their homes (or neighborhood parks) for a variety of gatherings. You can choose from outdoor picnics, wine and cheese gatherings, dessert, tea/coffee and treats and others. We encourage everyone to register  here for at least ONE opportunity to be simply social while enjoying simple hospitality and fellowship!  

Food Truck Friday – Mark your calendars and join us on Friday, July 14th for another fun filled Food Truck event! Watch for a special feature for dessert too!

So – plan on hanging around on Sundays, plan on hanging with others at least once during the week and plan on July 14th! July is going to be a great month of coming together for HIS name sake!

Summer 2017 Respite Event (register to attend or serve)

Respite - Special Needs Ministry at Bay Presbyterian Church

As a church we host a free quarterly event that has made church more meaningful for families with special needs. It's called Respite, and it's a two and a half hour event (three hours for volunteers) that gives parents and caretakers a break from their everyday lives.

For some parents Respite nights are the only date nights they get all year. This means so much to the families that come that we don't want you to miss your opportunity to get involved in giving someone a much needed break.

At Respite, kids spend time doing all sorts of activities and it takes volunteers to keep those activities going. That's where you come in. Whether you're a teenager or a retired adult, there is a long list of roles that you can fill ranging from specialist roles to first-time volunteers with no experience. Anybody can find a place to serve, including you.

Our next event is Friday, August 4, and if you want to plug in and get involved in the life of the church in a new way, click the button to serve.

If you're a parent of a child with special needs and you want your child (and siblings) to attend this Respite event, click the attend button. (Please note: each child attending Respite needs a separate registration.)
