M*A*R*K Club: Music and Recreation for Kids begins
Sunday evening, September 21, 2014

From Pastor Ken... We are introducing a change in our Sunday evening program. This change is centered on our children’s ministry and out-reach. We are calling this the M*A*R*K Club. M*A*R*K stands for "Music and Recreation for Kids". We are taking the music ministry and combining it with recreation, Bible and activities and creating a "mini-VBS" for children.

As the plan is coming together, we have received dozens of great ideas that have been used to craft this ministry effort. Begin praying as the launch date of September 21 approaches. On Sunday, September 7 we will unveil details of the plans; we ask that you pray with us for this ministry.

Additionally our Church Council has planned several events related to the M*A*R*K Club. I’ll have a video based Bible Study in the sanctuary while the kids are having their fun. Please keep informed through the newsletter and the weekly bulletin as September approaches.

See you in church! Worship our Savior, Jesus Christ with us!

From Lauren... I am also excited that M*A*R*K* Club will be starting for our children in September as well. I encourage you to be involved however you can to minister to all the sweet children that come through our doors. So many of you have stepped up to volunteer and serve and that is so encouraging to me because I know it is because all of you see the need to love and care about these children. So many children, youth, and families could be reached and encouraged by this outreach initiative. I pray that all of you will find a way to help out.

You are invited! Join "Rooted" (our youth ministry) for Christian Music Day at Carowinds on Saturday, September 20, 2014. Please contact Lauren for further details and ticket information.

Passion Play 2015 Choir Rehearsal Kick-Off
Wednesday, September 24, at 7:00 PM

Our kick-off Choir rehearsal for our 2015 Passion Play will be Wednesday, September 24, at 7:00 PM. Our goal is to have 80 singers commit to be a part of this special music ministry opportunity. The choir is open to high school age and up. The dates for the Passion Play are Friday-Sunday, March 20-22. Please, please prayerfully consider this. As far as I know, we are the only church in the upstate who will present this type of music ministry worship experience this coming spring. Let’s invite all choir prospects and former members to help, because we want to tell the greatest story ever to the best of our abilities. Thanks for your great help, and please be here on the September 24th.

2014 VBS Report

Dear Church Family,

About 90 “special agents” heard the gospel message in many ways during the week of Vacation Bible School! We are so very thankful for EACH contribution, during the week, beginning with our wonderful team of volunteers whom we hopefully listed all below.

We are so very GRATEFUL for many more in our church family who contributed money, donated giving tree items, prepared and brought wonderful treats during the week and lifted countless prayers for us! Without a doubt, the ENTIRE BODY OF BELIEVERS at College Street surely participated in some way during this great week of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

The message this week: JESUS IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS. The evidence is clear. We DISCOVERED it through Bible study and many activities. Ten children DECIDED to follow Him! ALL were challenged and are now prepared to DEFEND the truth of JESUS CHRIST and share His love and powerful grace.

Thank you for giving us this awesome opportunity. TO GOD BE THE GLORY for all He has done and will continue to do, as we commit ourselves to HIS MISSION, the

Margaret and Vanessa
