Super Meeting July 2014  


Please help us continue spread the word, Parkview’s Quest VBS is free. YAHOO!!!!!!!!!   Anyone can still register their children or walk-ins are welcome.  The more the merrier!

If you were unable to attend our Super Meeting last week or you did not receive a handout below is a recap.

Arrive at least 30 minutes before the service (the lobby may be extra crowded during VBS weekends) to check-in, then sign in and find your classroom assignment. Next meet us in the YELLOW room for a team huddle.

The memory verse is:     “Lord, teach me how you want me to live. Then I will follow your truth.”  Psalm 86:11, NIV

 Our bottom Line that we want to continually repeat to the children is:  “I Can Count on God”

4 weekly bottom lines:

  •  July 26th/27th – “God is Creator”
  •  August 2nd/3rd – “God is Provider”
  •  August 9th/10th – “God is Protector”
  •  August 16th/17th – “God is Savior/King”

 The children receive water bottles when they sign up for VBS and are encouraged to pour their donations into the water wells that will be outside in our kids lobby.  Please do not let parents leave a water bottle in the classroom.  They need to take those with them to service.

During our large group time, this is what we will focus on each weekend:

  •  July 26th/27th – Creator – God created Everything
  •  August 2nd/3rd – Provider– God provided for the Flowers and the Birds
  • August 9th/10th – Protector – God protected Daniel from the Lion
  • August 16th/17th – Savior/King – God is our Savior and King

Here is an example of what each service will look like.

We open 20 minutes before the service for the families.  Children can free play until service starts then below is a sample schedule.

Example schedule:

9:00 to 9:10    Craft

9:15 to 9:35    Worship/Teach Time

9:40 to 9:50    Games/Adventure Time (Rotation 1)

9:55 to 10:05  Adventure Time/Games (Rotation 2)

10:10 to end   Snack

Dress Attire:  Please wear comfortable modest clothing.  You can purchase a VBS t-shirt for $5.00 when you check in.  That is optional.

If you are serving during VBS (July 26 thru August 17) please review the activities and worship songs click here.  

If you have any questions please reply or feel free to call me at 708-478-7477 ext. 287.  I’m here to help.

I look forward to serving with you during VBS.  Thank you for being a part of what God is doing at Parkview!

BIG hugs and much love,

Jill Shea

“The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.” Psalm 119:72 (NIV)

Do you know where to find a 2nd set of activity sheets? + Welcoming a New Child



Curriculum holder

Extra Activity Sheets Now Available For You!

Did you know there is now a second set of the activity sheets in every room in a magnetic holder on the tall metal cabinets.  This will now allow you to take the sheets around the room with you without having to pull them off the cabinet or magnetic boards.   Thank you Lisa Dorman!!!

Welcoming a new child?  Good preparation and a warm welcome will help make a visitor comfortable and eager to return another time.  For a child not raised in the church, the routines of our Parkview Kids class can be strange.  Love, attention and guidance will ease their fear and discomfort.  Take a few minutes before leaving the classroom for large group to introduce yourselves and explain where you are going and what you will be doing.  Be excited for the children and most importantly HAVE FUN!

Volunteer of the Week is on hold this week.  I will be out this weekend so if you have a last minute emergency or are running late please notify your coach or coordinator.  We cannot open the classroom unless we have at least two non-related adults in each room.  Please do your best to arrive 30 minutes before the service to meet in the yellow room for an important team huddle.  Here are your point people for this weekend:

Saturday 5:00pm Jen Christensen 815-534-0947

Sunday 9:00am Lorie Creedon 708-280-4368

Sunday 11:00am Tonya Hoots 815-955-5035

Sunday 5:45pm Lisa Dorman 815-302-0265

Please help us continue to spread the word about our new and FREE resource for parents .  Learn, worship and grow as a family available for all families with children birth – High School.   Parents can find the videos and music that we use every weekend at this site as well.  Awesome!!!

THANK YOU for being a part of what God is doing at Parkview.  We have the best team ever!

Love Wins!

Jill Shea
