Love INC Volunteers ~ Love INC has a growing need for volunteers to help with the LIFE Skills children’s program on
Tuesdays and Thursdays. Area of needs are: story teller; craft teachers, elementary child care provider; nursery child care provider, reader (reads one-on-one with students); meal provider for children (15-20 children weekly). All of these volunteer commitments can be weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or once a 12-week session. You can choose what fits your schedule. For more information call 269.751.2533 and ask for Jean or email [email protected].

Family Faith Formation ~ In the book Family: The Forming Center, Majorie Thompson observes that the Christian home
is a sacred shelter where parents and caregivers can reflect God’s love to children through presence (being there), acceptance, affirmation, accountability, forgiveness, and hospitality. How can you help your kids’ faith grow in the everyday-ness of life? (Faith Formation Ministries: crcna.org/FaithFormation).

Kid’s Korner ~ Liz and Lucille want to win a big prize, and Linda wants a new romance. Is this happening or is it the end
of the world? Listen now at kidscorner.net. You can also download the Valentine Card Collection to share with your family and friends.

Advice for the Christian Life ~ As the Apostle Paul closes his first letter to the Thessalonians he includes a list of last
minute instructions. Join Groundwork in the study of Paul’s advice for the Christian life found in I Thessalonians 5:12-28 so that God’s love in our hearts and Christ’s work in our lives will be evident to all. Listen at GroundworkOnline.com.
