Canoe Trip June 28th

Good Morning, Everyone!

Next Saturday (a week from today) is our canoe trip at Cave Country Canoes & we need to know if you’re coming! We’ve gotten a few RSVPs but we need to hear from YOU!!! Please contact us so we can reserve your canoe(s)! Once we get all of our RSVPs in, we can give you more details on the time & maybe carpool options. It will be a half-day trip, which is approximately 2-4 hours. Hope you can make it! It’ll be a fun day!!!

Mark Your Calendars!

Don’t you just LOVE adding upcoming events to your calendar? (I know, I’m a dork!) I love opening up my calendar, taking out my pencil & writing in the square provided, adding little hearts or stars…(Colin is rolling his eyes right now because he can’t believe I still use a paper calendar! It’s 2014! Ha!)

Well, Family Bible Church has a few great events ahead so get those calendars ready! First off, we will be taking a family field trip to the Blue River on Saturday, June 28th. Cave Country Canoes of 112 W. Main St. Milltown, IN will provide the canoes, and we will provide the excitement & laughter as we row down the river with friends & family. If you are interested please click here & let us know! More details will be provided later as we gather RSVPs & make reservations.

Secondly, we will have our 3 year celebration on Sunday, July 13th at the Danks house on Hahn Lake from 3pm-?pm. Bring out your swimsuits, towels, inner tubes, sunscreen, life jackets (a requirement for kids younger than 16), fishing poles, folding chairs, coolers of drinks and anything else you might need to have a fun day on the lake! We will be having a potluck meal, with FBC providing the meat. Families with last names beginning with A-L please bring an appetizer & dessert and those with last names beginning with M-Z please bring two appetizers. Come out to the west side on 8100 Azalea Dr. 47712 for some great fellowship & fun!

Looking forward to time together,

Megan Danks

Sunday’s Outreach-We Need YOU!!! June 1st 3-6pm @ Impact Ministries

Whether or not you can be involved in the upcoming VBS week which is June 2-6 each evening from 6-7:30pm, we’d love to have your help this Sunday for a community outreach! We will be meeting at Impact Ministries on 720 SE 8th St 47713 at 3pm to walk around the neighborhood passing out flyers & inviting kids to our VBS. We will also be inviting them to a cookout with hamburgers & hot dogs that we will be having at Impact Ministries at 5pm that same day. Please consider coming to help us out! If you prefer to stay indoors we will also be decorating the worship area that afternoon & could use help.

We will shine the light of Jesus & God will draw families to Himself as children hear the Gospel during VBS and lives will be changed by the power of the Holy Spirit! Come be a part of the fun!

VBS Planning PARTY this Sunday!!

It’s always a PARTY when we’re together, right? Come on out, Family Bible VBS Volunteers, (whether or not you’ve “signed up” yet, we need YOU) THIS SUNDAY, MAY 18 for our 2nd VBS Planning Event. This Sunday we will go straight to Impact Ministries on 720 SE 8th St. 47713 after church, eat Subway subs & chips at around 11-11:15am, watch Matt Lovell make a fool of himself as he teaches us the “moves” to one of the new VBS worship songs, then break up into groups (for approx. 30 minutes) to further plan for our upcoming Family Bible Church Mission Trip to downtown Evansville for the Impact VBS June 2-6th from 6-7:30pm each evening. Please plan to come out, we’ll have a great time!!!

Forgot to Mention…(concerning VBS Mtg this Sunday)

We will begin our meeting promptly at 11am at Impact Ministries on 720 SE 8th St. 47713. Don’t worry, we will make it as brief & well-organized as possible, we know you all have busy schedules. Molly McDonald will be in charge & is the queen of staying on task…Megan Danks, not so much 🙂

See You Sunday, Friends!!!

Love, Megan

Calling all FBC Family Members

We need your help with VBS this summer!!! Monday, June 2-Friday, June 6th from 6-7:30pm we will be holding a VBS at Impact Ministries. We are hoping & praying that this will be an all-church short term mission trip, which means we need YOU!

This Sunday, May 4th, after church, we will all travel to Impact Ministries for a training session where you will get to know your team & prepare/plan for the mission trip ahead of you. FBC will be providing pizza & chips & drinks, so all you need to bring is YOU! We will be doing the same thing, same time, same place on Sunday, May 18th so please mark your calendars! Also mark your calendars for Sunday, June 1st from 3-6pm as we will be “pounding the pavement” as Kelly Lovell termed it, passing out flyers about our upcoming VBS to neighbors, inviting their children to come & join us the next week.

For families with current 5th graders, these 5th graders are considered 6th graders during VBS week and we invite them to come to the training sessions as leaders & helpers! Please talk with your student about what areas they’d be interested in & let us know!

If you have not indicated an interest to us, here are the following options:

* Decorations/Crafts Team (decorate Impact on Sunday June 1st & work with kids on crafts entire week)

* Group Leader/Bible Verse Team (walk with students from rotation to rotation & help them learn their memory verses in small group time)

* Recreation Team/Clean Up (plan the week’s activities and play with kids outside throughout the week along with making sure the facility is clean every evening & thoroughly on Friday night)

* Worship Team/Snacks (learn the motions to the songs & lead them for the week along with being in snack area to get to know the kids & pass out snacks)

Please let us know where you are interested click here and we will plug you into a team!!!

Thanks & See you Sunday!
Megan (for VBS Team)
