What a beautiful day in Kansas! Hope you are taking time to enjoy it and thank God for His blessings today. There are 3 things that I would like to share with you and ask for your help:
First, this Sunday we start another service at NewSpring Church and all Sunday service times will change. The new times are 8:45 a.m., 10:15 a.m. and noon. This will allow us to reach more people in South Central Kansas. There have been times when we ran out of parking space and reached full capacity in KidzWorld classes because so many people want to attend our services. The purpose of the additional service is to hopefully spread out the crowds and allow more people to come and enjoy the NewSpring experience without dealing with parking and room size limitations.
I would like to ask each person who is reading this email and celebrates with us about the number of people who are drawn to come to NewSpring to seriously consider how you can help us make this move work. Please consider attending the 8:45 or noon service as your main service time. We believe that 10:15 will be the most attractive to our many guests so we appreciate your help making space for them. Also, consider volunteering if you don’t already. There are many ways to get involved at NewSpring. You can go to our website to get more information about volunteering or just check one of the boxes on your worship guide this weekend and we will get in contact with you about volunteer opportunities.
Another service time addition is happening for Easter weekend ONLY. In addition to our new weekend service times, we will offer a weekend service on Friday, April 6th at 7 p.m. This service will be identical to the Saturday and Sunday services. We expect it to benefit those who may leave town over the weekend or have family plans on Saturday and Sunday. KidzWorld will be open during all 6 services and The Wire will be open during it’s new schedule of Saturday at 4 and 5:30 p.m. and Sunday at 10:15 and noon. Pick up some mini-invites in the main foyer or in KidzWorld to invite your friends for that special weekend.
Second, Baby Dedication will be May 6 at 3 p.m. This is a very special service for those families that have children under the age of two. It’s a time for parents to commit themselves to raise their children to follow Christ and to instill in them the values & truth from the Bible. You MUST pre-register if you want to participate in this event. We will send you a packet of information that you should complete before the dedication. You can get more information and register here.
Third, KidzWorld Camp is scheduled for June 4-7. We would like to invite your 2nd-4th grader to go to camp at Sky Ranch in Quapaw, Oklahoma. The cost of camp is 259.00 which is an early bird rate available until April 15. We want to make the camp experience fantastic for the kids. NewSpring has rented out the entire camp facility and we have secured some super nice tour buses for transportation. But the camp and bus company need our final numbers well in advance of camp so we really encourage you to sign up by April 15th if your child would like to attend camp. The KidzWorld staff is already making plans to make this the best camp ever! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to allow your child to have fun and learn something that will impact them for years to come. Just click here to register. If you don’t have a child going to camp but you would like to help financially with the cost of camp, you can make a donation online or by marking “camp help” on your offering envelope.
