I want to share the following words which are from the heart of our Children's Ministry director Megan Hollars. Our church is so blessed to have great leaders who serve alongside so many committed servants of the Lord Jesus Christ! As we are soon to conclude our regular school year calendar and move forward with our summer schedule for our children's activities we want to show our thankfulness to each and every one who serve in this very important ministry at Liberty Baptist Church! Each and every week they serve so faithfully and sacrificially. Only in heaven will the eternal results of such labor be revealed. To our AWANA Team, Sunday School Team, Junior Church Team, Sunday Eve Team, Nursery Team, Director and Department Heads and all others who are a part of the Children's Ministry may you receive proper PRAISE as we pray for and praise you along the way!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a HUGE Thank You to all of you who gave of your time and talents to serve in the AWANA program throughout this past school year. We are so blessed to have volunteers who will come to church each Thursday night to help these kids grow in their knowledge and faith by memorizing the scriptures. We have awesome teachers that come prepared to teach the children stories from God’s word that will change their lives. And best of all thank you to those of you who come to love on the kids each week. Again I will say that we are greatly blessed to have this team of volunteers that work with children starting at nursery age and going all the way up through 6th grade.
I would ask each of you reading this if you would consider joining us in the fall for our next AWANA year. We would love to have you come help these kids learn their verses, sit with them during story time, or help with the games. Please take some time this summer to pray and see if God is calling you to help train up the next generation in God’s word.
While we are on the topic of prayer, I also want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who participated in our Pray for Me Campaign this year. We had a huge amount of participation here at Liberty and I was excited to hear all of the stories come back to me from those praying as well as those being prayed for. I am so proud to share with people that I belong to a church that believes in praying for the teens and children of our church.
This Sunday night we are using the evening service to celebrate the next generation of our church. We will be sharing those who have achieved awards this year during the course of our AWANA program as well as recognizing those of you who have faithfully served in the AWANA program. We will be sharing about our Pray for Me Campaign and honoring those who have taken time each day to pray for someone that is the future of this church and nation. And we will be honoring those who have graduated high school and college, which is also a great achievement.
It is my hope that you will join us as we celebrate as a church family the great ways that God has been at work during the school year. Even if you weren't involved in any of the ministries I have mentioned, come and show your support to those who were. It is our job as a family to celebrate along with each other, raising each up as they achieve, encouraging as they struggle, and prayerfully, faithfully living life together in unity.
