The Top 3 Things I Need You to Know this Week

on mission

Parkview Kids … ON MISSION!

Last weekend we handed out our NEW Team t-shirts.  WOOHOO!!!!!  If you did not receive yours yet, you can pick it up on your next serve date.

THANK YOU for a great beginning to the school year.  Our teams’ energy level  is HIGH and all the children have been connecting and it all starts with YOU.  Thank you for your dedication to God’s little ones!

Here are the TOP 3 Things I need you to know this week:

1.  If you are in charge of preparing the white bags for children, please put the first AND last name on a bag when we have two children with the same first name.  We’ve had a few instances where parents will pick up the wrong bag even though you may have the initial of the last name on bag.  I’m sure you can imagine the disappointment to not receive their child’s craft.  Please be sure to put the full last name when we have two children with the same first name so we can avoid that happening in the future. Thanks!

2.  Are you on Facebook?  I’d love to connect with you and add you to our private EC Facebook group.  It’s a great tool to hear about news in real time.  Let’s connect online, friend me up!  Click here

3.  Drum roll please…..We will have 10 Christmas services this year!   I know you’re thinking…what???  It’s only September???  Well, I thought you’d like to be the first to know what Parkview has planned for this Christmas season.  Here’s the schedule for the 10 Christmas services.  If it’s your normal weekend to serve you will automatically be scheduled in for Christmas.  We will also do a recruitment for Christmas helpers.  This allows our weekly team members to have some time off to rest and recharge.

Saturday, Dec. 20:  3:45 pm & 5:45 pm (regular weekend schedule)

Sunday, Dec. 21:  9:00 am, 11:00 am, 5:45 pm (regular weekend schedule)

Monday, Dec. 22:  NONE

Tuesday, Dec. 23:  5:00 pm & 7:00 pm

Wednesday, Dec. 24: 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 3:00 pm

Let’s continue to go beyond the call of duty and make this our best year yet as we reach out to our community each weekend, encourage parents and minister to children through loving touch, encouraging speech and appropriate play.

RISE UP, you are more than you know!

BIG hugs and much love,

Jill Shea

2. Opportunities await! For this Saturday we are in need for two more adults @ 3:45 and one more adult at 5:45pm.  This Sunday, Sept. 14th, we could really use two more adults at the 11am service.  Please reply or fill yourself in the schedule for an important role. Thanks so much!

3.  It’s that time of year!  Every September we have new team t-shirts for all of our team members.  We will have these available for pick up on your next serve date.  Please do your best to arrive at least 30 minutes before the service.  These will be distributed duirng our huddle time.  All volunteers receive one free t-shirt, if you request a second we kindly ask for $5.00 to offset the cost. Thanks!

4.  Visitor Postcards – Please be sure to put the first AND last name of a child if you write out a Visitor Postcard.  I had two from this past weekend with a first name only.  : (  We have over 300 children coming through our six Early Childhood classrooms every weekend so it’s imperative a last name is on the card so we can address and mail. Thank you for understanding.

5. Volunteer of the Week is coming soon!  We are making a few updates and we’ll be back to putting a weekly spotlight on our awesome team members in the next few weeks!!!

Thank you for being a part of what God is doing at Parkview.  See YOU soon!

BIG hugs and much love,





Jill Shea

It’s goes by soooooooooooo fast!  We are quickly approaching our last weekend of Quest VBS.  Let’s finish this weekend STRONG.

Look at what God is doing … In only 3 weeks, Parkview Kids have LIVED DIFFERENTLY and raised $5,943.47 for our Clean Water Well Project!  We will be able to build 2 wells…Let’s go for 4!!!  WAY TO GO!

If you are serving this weekend, August 16/17, please arrive 45 minutes before the start of service for an extra-special huddle which will allow us more time to debrief VBS and be equipped for the last VBS service.  All huddles are held in the Yellow room this weekend EXCEPT for the 11:00am service.  All 11:00am team members please meet us in THE CITY at 10:15am for our huddle time.

We could still use some extra hands this weekend so if you are available and not currently on the schedule please let me know.  We’d LOVE to have you join us!


Two important events are fast approaching…

1.   VBS Closing Program & Family Night Friday, August 22nd 6:30pm-8:30pm.

We will worship together and recap all of the things we’ve learned. Afterwards we will head outside for a free hot dog dinner, inflatables, balloon artists, dunk tanks…TONS OF FUN!!!!  Dessert will be available for purchase from a variety of food trucks.  You are ALL welcome to join us.  If you do not have children in the VBS program please let me know if you’d like to help volunteer next Friday night.

2.  YOU’RE INVITED to our very FIRST all Church Volunteer Rally Monday, September 8th!  Doors open at 6:00pm for appetizers and desserts.  The Rally starts at 7:00pm.  You don’t want to miss this event.  Pastor Tim will be sharing his heart for being a Church on Mission and he would like to thank you personally for the great role that you play!  Spouses are welcome.  If you did not receive the email invite please let me know.  I also have a hard-copy invite I will hand out in our huddle this weekend.
