Movie Night Wednesday!

Hey Gang!
We'll be the only ones in the building Wednesday, so bring your lawn chairs or bean bags and we're going to have movie night using our new projector (huge picture)! We'll have some popcorn and you can bring CARPET FRIENDLY snacks as well. We have always had a blast as these activities. Come and enjoy a movie with us if your folks are planning on being in town over Thanksgiving. I look forward to seeing you there.

Tonight's the Night!

It's here! Fall Festival 2012!

I need all the helpers I can get. Please consider helping out if you haven't already. Many events this weekend have left us short-handed. If you folks don't mind coming without you, we could use them too. We need to arrive at five and take care of the final stuff. Please try to get here on time.

Fall Fest in One Week

Hey Gang:

Fall Festival is next week, Oct. 26, 2012.
 Friday night we're on. I hope you can come and help set up Thursday night so we can be ready to go Friday. We are scaling back print advertising because it has not been as effective as the radio ads. Pray that God will help us reach kids for Him this week.
   Wednesday we will be in full-on planning mode so be on time. Keep bringing your candy and plan on being at the church around 5:00 p.m. Friday. You may wear costumes as long as they are appropriate, non-violent and you can work in them. We'll need you to stay and help clean up as well. Make sure your folks know that so we can get it all together quickly.

   I am counting on your assistance. If your parents would like to lend a hand, I need people to work security, help Chere in the kitchen and, manage incidentals. We want kids to be blessed, entertained and safe.
   I know you will do a great job. We could still use a few packages of balloons and we need pies for a pie eating contest. We'll buy them if we have to, but if your folks (or you) like to bake, that's great.

Pray for success...

First Draft of Shirts. What do You think?

Here's a draft of what I'd like to do with the shirts. The multicolor would be really epensive so we would probably need to go monochrome. Respond with comments or e-mail me.

Thanks for A Great Job!

Hey Y'all:
   Looks like Next Level Sunday was a success. People had a good time and enjoyed the lunch. We are in debt to our parents who came through in the kitchen. Mr. and Mrs. Miller and Mrs Johnson (and her daughters) were lifesavers. The food was hot and ready to go and we had lots of people lined up. I estimate 150 or more joined us for dinner and the huge cake was gone at the end.
   Singing was great and the musicians sounded wonderful. The offering was taken well and sound and greeters did a great job. We had plenty of help with set up and tear-down and when I made it home I dropped and slept for two hours! Thanks so much.

   and now.....Fall Festival!

See you tomorrow..

Next Level Sunday is Tomorrow!

Hey y'all:
   Tomorrow is Next Level Sunday where we will see to it that service is well-conducted and then offer a spaghetti lunch for our congregation and friends to celebrate five yeas in ministry. If yu have a job to do, please be at church on time (9:30-9:45 a.m.) for set up and special instructions. We hope to have an excellent service to Jesus tomorrow, and share the word of God. The only difference is that we will be responsible for every aspect of service.
   Please remember to dress appropriately if you are leading or serving. Thanks. Pray for me as I prepare the message for tomorrow and that God would use it to effectively transmit the message of Christ.

See you soon

Saucy Idea ...

Hey Gang:

   Could I ask you and/or your parents to bring a can or two of Prego Spaghettii Sauce to Next Level Wednesday? Marsh has a sale on it now, and Sam's has it in big, fat containers. The traditional variety will be fine.If you can't find that bring the mushroom variety. Some parents have already offered to make sauce and that's great, but I think we'll still need more  as backup. If you all brought one, we would have 25 or so jars of the same kind of sauce. Please e-mail me if you can bring sauce.

Thanks a ton!

If you are new to us, please get us your parents' email so we can keep them up to date on our projects and gatherings. Pray for God's blessings and continued success.

School supplies bin is out!

Hey Level Heads!
The bin for collection of school supplies is out in the atrium. We have already had a phone call from a parent who needs supplies for her child. Isn't it great that we have already, after only one year, been identified as a
ministry that offers this service? Let's hope this is a positive indicator that God is already blessing this ministry. Please bring school supplies to church for this ministry. Encourage your folks to pick up extra supplies when they shop this weekend. Let's "Love them back to school" again this year.

Servers look sharp and serve well for Seder Dinner Friday

     A big thanks to Next Level servers who showed up dressed up, and worked throughout the Seder Dinner last Friday Night. Though not everyone had a chance to suit up, many served. Folks were impressed with the service and the attentiveness. Next time up is the Daughter's Luncheon April 28. We should have another opportunity to serve well. Thanks again to Seth, Henry, Coop 2.0, Jacob, and Kelsey (did I miss anyone?) we really appreciate it.

One more time!? Not Mulch More to do!

   We still need to do a little more mulching to be done for Easter. Can I count on your rakes, shovels and pitchforks one more time? I know it's a lot of work, but you did a great job last time.

Thanks a ton.

I Need Men to Serve Daughter's Luncheon

Hey dudes!
   I wanted t remind you that April 28 is the Daughter's Luncheon. Since it is an affair for the ladies, we would like all the servers to be dudes. I need to know as soon as possible so I can finish getting shirts for servers. Can you let me know by Wednesday night when we meet?

Thanks... Fearless Leader

Nice work, Level-heads!

Thanks again for your help with the mulching! Dale tells me the church has never tried to mulch the entire property before because of the workload. You have helped make the project possible. If needed would you be willing to help again next Wednesday on a much (much) smaller scale?

Let me know.

Rakes alive! Ministry opportunity

Dale needs help moving mulch around. I thought tomorrow night we could bring garden rakes and gloves and help fix up the flower beds. The weather will be good. I just received the e-mail earlier so I know the notice is short. Tell everyone you know who might not see this and we'll try to help out tomorrow night. Also dress appropriately for working in the flower beds.

Holy Hoses!

No, I didn't misspell the name of the leader of the desert wanderers. I am just reminding you that we need to find old garden hoses to donate to the organic garden effort. If you have a hose that's as full of potential as it is of holes, bring it to Next Level this Wednesday and I'll get it to the proper people. ALSO! If you could donate newspaper (black and while pages only), it will be used for weed control.
See you soon

Thanks a million

Hey Gang:
Chere and I would like to thank you all for the gifts you gave us last Wednesday. It was quite unexpected and a great encouragement to us both. We love serving in the youth ministry and believe it is an important part of Emmanuel's contribution to children's and youth education. It is our pleasure to serve, but your gesture makes it all that much sweeter. We definitely feel loved.
   I hope to be on the blog more often. The press of new courses, family-wide serious illnesses and a loss of time kept me from the blog. I hope to make a better go of it from here on in.

In Christ
