VBS At Christ UMC Is June 1-6

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Vacation Bible School at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, will be June 1-6 with two sessions:  Evening: Sunday-Thursday, 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Morning: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-noon.

At Weird Animals VBS, kids discover that Jesus’ love is one-of-a-kind. Weird Animals is a habitat filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us in the "Tail End" Friends section each day/evening (30 minutes prior to dismissal) because that’s when we’ll be having a daily celebration of Jesus’ love you won’t want to miss.

Register your children for this life-changing adventure with the church. 

The Ladies Supper Club for women over 50 will meet Tuesday, June 3 at 6 p.m. at J. Alexanders at Hamilton Place. Reservations are necessary. Call Ann Boleman at 855-870.
 

Join us for Business Women’s Lunch on Tuesday, June 10, 11:30, at the Sheraton Read House. We will discuss Career Roadblocks. Learn about common barriers we all come up against and how to overcome them. Free parking.

Lunch will be ordered from the Porter’s menu and the cost is $15.60.  Space is limited to 35 so register early.

Steve Ellison: Excellent Things Of Counsels And Knowledge

In Proverbs 22:20-21, God makes a significant statement while asking an equally significant question.  God asks,  “Have I not written to you excellent things of counsels and knowledge, To make you know the certainty of the words of truth, That you may correctly answer him who sent you?”  (NASU)    God has certainly written to us “excellent things ...

Bob Tamasy: Never Make Light Of The Importance Of Being Light

In my last post, I wrote about the indispensable, universal importance of salt for everyday life. We should consider light as well, very different from salt but also vital to life in all its forms – and similarly endowed with unique properties.  Among these are calorific (producing heat), actinic (serving as a catalyst for chemical reactions), and luminiferous (transmitting ...

Tennessee Business Expansions On Rise Across State

To a great extent, Bradley and Polk Counties have benefited from that investment.   From February 2015 to February 2016, Cleveland/Bradley County led the ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Public Defender And The Mental Health Court

I am holding in my hand a list of the names of 50 very real people who cost the taxpayers of Hamilton County a combined $3,037.090 in incarceration charges before July 2015. These people live in our county and I dare say it is not completely their fault that they were put in the county jail. Each has a professionally-diagnosed mental illness and today, most regretfully, the County ... (click for more)
