M*A*R*K Club: Music and Recreation for Kids begins
Sunday evening, September 21, 2014

From Pastor Ken...

The Year of the Children… This week marks the kickoff of two ministries to children throughout the Walhalla area.

First is the Good News Club - For the 9th year, a team of adults from CSBC will be leading in an after-school Bible teaching program with approximately 100 children. Many thanks to Rev. Don Bickers for taking on the role of Coordinator. Many more thanks to all the volunteers who are filling the positions to make this year a great year with the children!

Second is the M*A*R*K Club for Kids. This is a new effort to reach out into the community by partnering with the weeknight efforts that have been in place for a number of years and with our music program. M*A*R*K* which stands for Music and Recreation for Kids. Like a mini-VBS, children will rotate through a variety of classes (music, recreation, Bible, crafts and food) in a 90-minute evening every Sunday.

Good News Club began September 16th. M*A*R*K Club begins on Sunday, September 21. Be praying for the efforts to reach the children for Jesus Christ. Again, thanks to so many adults who have stepped up to say they wanted to be part of the effort.

Also, on Sunday night, September 21, I will begin a CrossWalk class for adults not involved in M*A*R*K Club. The class is entitled Unseen But Certain. It’s a six-week video based study taught by Daniel Akin, President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The six sessions will tell us what the Bible says and why it matters about angels, Satan, demons, hell, and heaven. I encourage you to participate and learn together.

You are invited! Join "Rooted" (our youth ministry) for Christian Music Day at Carowinds on Saturday, September 20, 2014. Please contact Lauren for further details and ticket information.

Passion Play 2015 Choir Rehearsal Kick-Off
Wednesday, September 24, at 7:00 PM

Our kick-off Choir rehearsal for our 2015 Passion Play will be Wednesday, September 24, at 7:00 PM. Our goal is to have 80 singers commit to be a part of this special music ministry opportunity. The choir is open to high school age and up. The dates for the Passion Play are Friday-Sunday, March 20-22. Please, please prayerfully consider this. As far as I know, we are the only church in the upstate who will present this type of music ministry worship experience this coming spring. Let’s invite all choir prospects and former members to help, because we want to tell the greatest story ever to the best of our abilities. Thanks for your great help, and please be here on the September 24th.
