We're Approved!
This morning Amanda Albuquerque, our Sunlight Christian Academy preschool director, attended the meeting of the Health Department council that gives final licensure to preschools in Palm Beach County.  Without any questions and a few minor suggestions they approved us to be a licensed preschool provider in Palm Beach County!  We thank God for His faithfulness through this process!  Continue to pray for:
1. That we will be approved to receive Voluntary PreKindergarten funds through the state.
2. That the advertising we send out will be fruitful in our community.
3. For new enrollments of students!
Thanks Jon!
As many of you have probably heard by now Jon Acosta will serve his last official Sunday as our worship leader on July 30.  It is with a heavy heart that I see him go.  Though we shall remain dear friends and Jon will always be available to help Sunlight when he can, we will miss him leading us each Sunday into God's  presence in corporate worship! Join us at Beth and Jerry Barbers immediately after the service on July 30 as we have a farewell luncheon for Jon. Bring a dish to pass.

Before I ever moved to Florida I prayed for a worship leader that would bring youth and diversity to our leadership team at Sunlight.  I am so thankful that God answered that prayer through Jon Acosta!  Though I wish we had more time to serve together, Jon has taught me, and our church, much about Hispanic culture and contemporary worship. He brought a mature leadership beyond his years to our worship team.  Though the role of worship leader can be a challenging one when we are striving as a church to bring together diverse age groups and diverse cultures, Jon served with calmness and grace.  He is always ready with a smile and a word of encouragement.  Jon's desire has always been to faithfully lead us to give God glory through song.  Jon has also brought many other gifts in sound design, graphic design, print layout and endless networking with great people in this community! Pray for Jon as he transitions to other work.

We will be in the process of searching for a new part-time worship leader as we say good-bye to Jon.  Dave Bom and Fernando Altamirano  will be serving as our worship leaders in the interim.  Pray for Dave and Fernando and for the search process.  Pray for the financial  strength we need to hire our next worship leader.
