Many of us look at the summer months as a time when we can kick back and relax a little. As families we plan picnics, reunions, maybe a couple of weeks away from home to see friends, go to
favorite places or check out new things. At church some of our regular ministries take a break during the summer (Sunday School, Dance-Dance-Dance, weekly Bible studies, Busy Bees, etc.) Not a
lot happens during the summer, right? Well, not if you’re connected to Baden United Methodist Church!
It's been a busy place lately and the schedule doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. In recent weeks we celebrated Sunday School Appreciation Sunday, Pentecost, Graduation Sunday, and Father’s
Day. We recognized Alan Hazelwood with the Cross and Flame Award for his years of above-and-beyond service to the Boy Scouts and the church. Allison Ramirez received the Timothy Award from the WPA Annual Conference for outstanding leadership as a youth. We sent Nemorio Ramirez on a mission trip to Puerto Rico. And we collected 201 pairs of new and gently used shoes in support of local and world-wide outreach ministries. If you haven’t been to worship recently you’ve missed a lot!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE TO COME!
You’re probably aware that our annual Vacation Bible School is right around the corner: July 23 through 27 to be exact. This year’s director, Sheri Fubio, has been doing a bang-up job pulling all the people and pieces together to create a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Christ with the children of our community. There’s still time to get involved! Sign up your kids, your grandkids, your neighbor’s kids, ANY KIDS!
