TROGLEN Family Ministries PRESCHOOL MINISTRY Bart Teel @ FBCW Music Notes Gigi Willis Cathy Sanford, Minister of Preschool Summer Monday Nights are on the way and we are excited about our guests this summer. For those of you new to FBCW each summer (except last summer) we move our midweek services to Monday nights and invite special guests to minister to FBCW and the community. This Monday venue allows members of other churches to join us without having to abandon their own services on Wednsday evenings. This summer we are particularly blessed. June 15—Jonnie W. When not performing at solo events Jonnie works with Christian comedian Tim Hawkins on his “Rockshow Comedy Tour.” Jonnie blends musical chops, mad vocals and off-beat standup for a hilarious unique comedy experience. Jonnie is a regular at FBC Atlanta and handles many Lifeway events. June 22—Kristi Malzhan Kristi Malzhan, wife of Auburn’s head football coach, Gus Malzhan, will be speaking on this evening.. Jun 29—Tim Lee Tim Lee, the rebellious teenager and son of a Baptist minister, once walked the streets of McLeansboro, Illinois, in violent protest to all ordained authority in the home, the church, and the school. To escape the world around him, he joined the Marine Corps in 1969. After his training, he received orders to serve in southeast Asia. In March of 1971, he was apprehended by the hand of God along an abandoned grassy trail in Quang Nam Province, Vietnam. In that moment, engulfed in smoke, fire and holy vengeance, a land mine explosion severed two lower limbs, and placed in a wheelchair for life a young man who was to carry, without legs, a message from God to a nation. Final three will be shared next week. See You Sunday Doc Trog One of the very most important ministries at FBC Wetumpka is our Sunday morning small groups ministry. Through the years we have changed the name of our groups from Sunday School to Bridge Groups, but the purpose remains the same – to connect people to the Gospel, to a loving and caring group of friends, and to the mission of the church. We are preparing for what we hope will be our greatest year of small group ministry to date at FBCW, and as a part of our preparation, I want to remind our Bridge Group leaders to make plans to be a part of a very important info meeting this Sunday night at 5:00 PM in the iMPACt. We want to introduce you to a great new curriculum that we are considering as a key component of Sunday School ministry, and we need your input as we finalize plans for the coming church education year. Anyone who is interested in learning more about BELIEVE and how we may be integrating this study into our church life is welcome to come and enjoy this time of learning together! Thank you Preschool Volunteers for May 17 2015 8:30 am Nursery: Debbie Anderson, Wendy Barnes, Beth Roberts, Renee Levins Preschool Worship: Tammie Bacon 11:00 am Nursery: Anne Robinson Extended Session: Tara Brown CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER “Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began.” Psalm 139:16 I write these verses down as an encouragement to those who are going into another chapter in their lives, namely the seniors. In just a few days you will be graduating and your life will be changing. Some of you will go to college, some are going into the military, and some are going into the work force. Seek God in all that you do, wherever you may be going, and He will direct your paths. His plans for you are way better than the plans you may have for yourself. May His plans be your plans! Library Media Center New books went on the shelf this week. One of these books is a fictional story by Max Lucado entitled Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café. With a mix of coffee, faith, pastry yumminess and a tale of redemption, the story takes place in the backgrounds of San Antonio where newly separated Chelsea reopens her moms' coffee shop while trying to make sense of the chaos that had become her life. Readers will find this book to be truly inspiring as they read of God’s love and grace as Chelsea’s world turns upside down.
