Tuesday, May 5 Update

As you may have already heard, this morning Scioto Hills made the difficult decision to cancel all Youth Camps for the Summer of 2020. This means that in addition to the New Frontier and Alpha Camps being cancelled, our high school SEEKers program will also not be taking place this summer.

We know that this is disappointing news as camp is the highlight of the summer for so many of our students and youth SEEKers leaders.

While this summer will certainly look different, we know that our God has known what the summer of 2020 would be from the beginning, and we look forward to seeing how he plans to use all of this to deepen relationships and further his Kingdom.

While Scioto Hills is not running Youth Camps this summer, they are instead planning to offer five weeks of "Fresh Air-Fun Filled-Get Out of the House Family Camps."

You can read the full update from Scioto Hills and find more information on Family Camps HERE.

Monday, April 13 Update

We have an opportunity for those of you who are looking for a way to serve as a family.

For many years, our Linworth family partnered with the Lower Lights ministry in Franklinton, and many of our families still serve there actively today.

They have several students in their Bright Lights program who don't have access to the resources and encouragement that many of us do as they shelter at home. In addition, there are about 100 kids quarantined in a shelter around the corner from them who could also use some additional resources and encouragement as well.

We are looking for people to sign up to make activity packets for kids in a variety of age groups that will be delivered to these locations later this week.

If you are interested in serving in this way, click the button below to see suggestions for what to include in the activity packets and sign up for as many in whichever age groups you'd like.

Packets will be due to the church barn by this FRIDAY, April 17 at Noon. Once you have signed up, we will provide you with information on how to access the collection bins in the barn.

Thank you!

March 20 Update

We know that parents and families are facing particularly unique challenges right now, so if we can be praying for you, or if we can connect you to somebody to encourage you during the week, or serve your family in any way during this time, please let us know HERE.

We also know that many of you, and your kids, are really missing coming together to hear about Jesus, so we want to provide a variety of resources for you to keep your kids engaged in the Word of God while they are at home. 

Preschool Ministry

Dear Preschool Families,

First, I wanted to let you know how much I have truly missed seeing everyone. Working with your children each week is such a blessing, and I love seeing them so excited to be hearing stories from God’s Word, reciting verses, and learning about worship. As we head into another week apart, we, as a staff, really want to make sure that we are trying to meet the needs of every generation in our church family.

I have been talking to some of our volunteers, and they are ready to jump to try to bring some routine to a very abnormal time. Each week we plan on having a short video Bible lesson available for your children that will be posted on Wednesdays.

I am sure that the kids will be excited to see some familiar faces! We are also looking at being able to provide some other resources and handouts to go along with the lessons.  If you do not have a printer at home and would like copies, please let me know so we can work to get these resources to you. You will be able to access the first of these lessons here on this page, starting Wednesday.

Please never hesitate to reach out to me. If you have questions, have a need, or just need to talk, I am available.

Sheri Lichtensteiger
Preschool Director

 

Elementary Ministry

Dear Elementary School Families,

Disoriented . . . I read this word today and realized it described exactly how I have been feeling this past week. I imagine all of us are experiencing different emotions as we adjust to a new reality along with trying to process the daily deluge of news reports, social media posts, emails, and the list goes on. 

I keep coming back to another word though . . . and that is hope. As believers, our hope isn’t just a wishful thinking or “hoping” for the best in a difficult situation. Rather, it is a confident expectation knowing that God is who He says He is and all He has promised is true. This is the remedy for my disorientation, an anchor for my soul.

During this time of many unknowns, our desire as a staff is to continue to come alongside your family in teaching your children from God’s Word each week. It will just look a little different for the time being.

Our plans are still taking shape, but at this time, we are planning a weekly message from God’s Word which will be posted on Wednesdays. Additionally, we are working to provide some devotional resources for your children to study and read the Bible as we anticipate the celebration of Easter in a few weeks. You will be able to access these resources here on this page, so check back each week for the latest information and resources.

I miss seeing your children on Sundays and have been praying for them and for your families. If you have any needs at all . . . questions, suggestions, specific requests for which I can pray, or maybe just a need to talk, I would truly love to hear from you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out, anytime.

Molly King
Elementary School Director

 

Sunday Mornings

Each week in the bulletin that is passed out on Sunday morning, there is a section called "Around the Table." These discussion questions are aimed at creating conversation around the dinner table centered around the Sunday morning passage. We plan to include these questions under the video on the Sermon Video page starting this week (March 22). These questions can be adapted for kids and families of all ages.

 

AWANA

After Spring Break week and being apart this week, our Cubbies, Sparks, and Truth & Training Club leaders and volunteers are missing your kids fiercely!

Cubbies

If you have a child in Cubbies, HERE is a link to a private Facebook group for our LBC Cubbie parents. We want your kids to continue to work through their books each week, and through this Facebook Group, you will have the opportunity to upload videos of your Cubbie saying their weekly verses for our leaders to listen to. This page will also provide access to videos of story time, puppet shows, craft tutorials, and more. 

HERE is the schedule to keep your Cubbie on track with their reading. These dates are the dates that each Bear Hug verse should be completed.

Keep checking in, and if you have any questions about Cubbies, feel free to contact Ida Basye at

Sparks and Truth & Training

We are so encouraged by all of the progress your Sparkies and T&T kiddos have made this year! For now, we are encouraging your child to continue working through their workbook each week. Please have your child continue in completing their sections and say their memorized verses to you. When your child completes sections, reach out to your Club leader as your child completes sections as we will keep track of their progress so your child has an opportunity to receive any badges and awards that they have earned. Keep checking back here as we consider additional resources and opportunities for these Clubs should we still be apart in the coming weeks.

Sparks: To let us know of your child's progress, or if you have any questions about Sparks, feel free to contact Mark & Lisa Merrick at 

T&T: To let us know of your child's progress, or if you have any questions about Truth & Training, feel free to contact Jeremy Chandler at

 

Resources

We know that there are a LOT of resources circulating for kids right now. So for the time being, we just wanted to remind you of the two opportunities that we shared during our first update.
