Greetings! 

Vacation Bible School 2018 was held last week from June 18 through June 22. We had 297 very excited children ages 4 through 5th grade as well as 100 youth and adult volunteers.

Our theme for this year was Rolling River Rampage: Experience the Ride of a Lifetime with God! We invited our "rafters" (children) on a white river rafting adventure. Along the the river, our rafters discovered that life with God is an adventure full of wonder and surprise, and that they can trust God to be with them through anything.

I would like to thank Ann Kuhn, VBS director, for all she does to make Vacation Bible School a great experience. To the youth and adult leaders, I would like to say thank you so much for all that you did to make VBS such a success. Thank you for your adventurous spirit and for equipping these children on a journey for a lifetime with God. I truly appreciate the gifts you offer of your time, talents, and service.  We could not have a program like this without the willingness of so many to participate.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you!" Isaiah 43:2

Blessings,

Salvation Army Lunches

Salvation Army is one of our community partners. We prepare and serve lunch every first, third and fifth Fridays.  We are looking for additional members for our serve teams. 

If you would be willing to donate your time one Friday morning a month for this ministry of compassion, please   contact Rev. Janet Stilwell at jstilwell@fmconroe.org .
Join our Identification Ministry

Imagine what it would be like to not have your state driver's license or photo identification.  You would not be able to get a job, cash checks, receive packages or certified mail, drive or countless other things that we tend to take for granted. 

For those who face homelessness or sudden, drastic changes in their lives, this is their reality. Trying to get a new I.D. is filled with complications and challenges that folks going through a crisis simply don't have the energy or focus to work through. 

Our church has two teams of wonderful individuals who help people navigate the difficult journey of getting identification. We are looking for a few more folks to join in this most important ministry. Countless people have had their lives changed through our members sharing a few hours of their week with them. 

If you would like more information, please contact Rev. Janet Stilwell at jstilwell@fmconroe.org or call 936-756-3395.
