Hi GCKids Parents,

Please enjoy this month’s GCKids Connect:

Happy May to all of our GCKids families! We are currently in full “VBS-mode” as we plan and prepare for this awesome week in the life of our church. Registration is now open, and you can sign up online at GraceChapel.org/VBS. May is also the month we have the opportunity to honor our Mom’s on Mother’s Day. Look for some special activities celebrating Mom’s on May 12.

Making the decision to follow Jesus is the most important decision we can make in our lives. As a kid, this often takes place at different times; VBS, summer camps, in our homes…anywhere! We at GCKids would love to know if and when your child makes a decision to follow Jesus with their lives. We have a special gift for them and would love to follow up to help support you, as parents, as to what’s next? If your child makes a decision for Jesus, or has already made a decision sometime in the last few months, would you let us know? We’d love the opportunity to encourage them and make their decision extra special and memorable. Thank you for letting us be a part of this special moment.

God bless,

 Jamie Tressen – Kids Pastor
