The Children’s Ministry will meet every Tuesday this summer from 10-11 at the Kingwood Fellowship Center. We’ll be asking “The BIG questions about GOD,” as we study along with Ian and Clive from “What’s in the Bible with Buck Denver!” Our first session will start Tuesday, June 18! Hope to see you there!!

An opportunity to serve for Youth & Adults:
There is a sign up for Students grades 6-12 and Young Adults who would like to help out a member of our congregation that needs some demo work done on their deck.  This will be a one-day project.  We will establish a day and time based on the answers given on the signup sheet.  Adults who would like to help mentor / help students while we work, are welcome to sign up and check the mentor designation.

A Reminder…
That the consensus of the church council, upholding a previous decision of the church council in July 1992, is that “any items needed to be sold at the church, should be sold in the basement, and not upstairs.”

Summer Youth Cafe
Our second year of Summer Youth Cafe will be starting on Friday, June 14th from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  The program will run on Tuesdays and Fridays through August 16th. We need volunteers to help pass out the meals to families! Please consider signing up for a spot on the calendars located on the tables outside the sanctuary. We have five adult spots that need filled for each distribution, but we welcome kids and teens to come along and be a part of the work. Kids and teens do not need to sign up on the calendar.

Volunteers are needed in the kitchen at Camp Sonrise Mountain!  If you would be available to volunteer in the kitchen at Camp Sonrise Mountain on Mondays – June 17th, June 24th and July 1st – any one day or several days – please contact Cheryl Pletcher ASAP.  We can carpool from Kingwood unless you cannot spend the whole day!  If you have questions – please contact me! Special Thanks to those who have already volunteered!

A Generous Life
Generous Sowing
June 9, 2024

2 Cor. 9:6-15 6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:

   “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
     their righteousness endures forever.”[a]

10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 14 And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
