I love when the month of March comes around every year. The reason for this involves two things: the weather and time change. The weather starts to warm up and the days get longer. That means it’s only a few short days until summer! It also means spring break is right around the corner for most of us who are kids. For some of you that realization is not all that comforting. For others (mostly kids), you cannot wait! March also brings some of the best times of the year for basketball fans. That’s right, March Madness will begin and I know we all our hoping teams will win the championship (Go Duke!). So, whether you’re ready for March or not, it’s here with several changes. With that in mind, I wanted take a few short moments and remind you of upcoming events taking place in our family and children’s ministries at Rose of Sharon.
First of all, on March 10 and 11, we will be having our Marriage Builder Conference for all engaged and married couples. The topic will be focusing on God’s design for the marriage institution. We all know that marriage is one of the greatest things created by the Lord, but do we know what the design is of marriage? Because of that, I truly believe it will be both informative and challenging to your marriage and walk with the Lord. Therefore, if you have not taken the time to sign up, please do so as soon as possible. The cost is $40 per couple, and that will include several things: the conference fee, supper and breakfast, and the material you will be receiving throughout the two sessions. Childcare will also be provided for both sessions, which will be Friday evening (6-8 PM) and Saturday morning (9-11:30 AM). If you have any questions regarding the conference, I will be glad to answer them for you. You can sign up outside the Element Kids Room, at the Connection Center or online at rosbc.org.
The next event will be Kid Sunday on March 19. This is one my favorite events we do as a children’s ministry. We will be taking over the morning service on that day and doing everything from worship to ushering. If you have a child or grandchildren, we would love for them to come and worship with us. Furthermore, we want you to come as well. Our children love when they receive the support from those who are older in the congregation. Therefore, make plans to attend on Sunday, March 19 at 10:45 AM.
Lastly, we will be having the Element Kids Nerf War on March 24. This is purely a fun event for all of our children between the ages of 5-6th grade. It is also open to those who are not apart of the children’s ministry at ROSBC. Therefore, if you know of children or have grandchildren who would like to attend, they are more than welcome to do so. If you are an adult and would like to come and shoot Nerf darts at children, you are also invited! Sign ups will continue until March 22 outside of the Element Kids Room.
I believe that covers the month of March for the family and children’s ministries at Rose of Sharon Baptist Church. As always, thank you for taking the time to read this article. It’s a privilege and honor to serve you and your family as the children’s pastor. I pray you and your family has a great month of March in 2017.
