JULY NEWSLETTER - North Woods Baptist Church
What a Success! In June our youth and children
both had VBS!
Ron Breckel led our church in GAME DAY
CENTRAL for this year’s children’s VBS! Over
120 children and adults we registered to take
part in this exciting week! Children learned that
being a part of God’s team is the most important thing in our life! The children also raised
over $180 for Buckner Baptist Benevolence
which has a ministry to orphans worldwide!
Our Youth Minister, Micah Skinner, also led
in VBS this year. GROUNDED, Youth VBS,
took place the week before our children’s
VBS. Our teenagers spent the week learning
about what it means to be grounded in God’s
Word. 30– 40 students and adults all had a
hand in making GROUNDED become a
A special thank you to everyone who took place in VBS this year! A lot of love and planning went
into making VBS happen! Children and youth got to hear the message of Christ in a way that they
can understand! Thank you for taking time to invest in others and for impacting our church and
community for Christ!

FIFTH SUNDAY SING
What an exciting year! It is hard to believe
that it has been a year since God brought us
to North Woods!
Christi and I have been taking time to look
back over the past year. It is simply amazing to see what God has allowed us to be a
part of at North Woods. Reuniting us with
old friends and making new ones really
stands out as one of the most special things
for us! God has brought us into a family
fellowship here at North Woods, and the
warmth and sense of belonging that we experience here is life-altering. As we look
into the years ahead this family fellowship
remains something that I pray every member of our church can enjoy in the same
way that we have.
Looking ahead to what God in store for us
as a church is exciting. One group of men
and women I would ask you to pray for
concerning our direction is our Space
Needs Committee. Herb Barger, Mike
Burkett, J.C. Harville, Geri Arriola, Susan
Skinner, and Melissa Wall. These men and
women are taking a look into how to make
more space for our growing family. As God
continues to bless our church, we have to
make good space to grow! Take time to
pray and talk with these men and women,
and if you have any ideas or insights let
them know! You may be the person that
God speaks through.
God has shared and is sharing His great
love with us! I can’t wait to see how He
continues to do this, but as He reveals His
will, we have only to look back at the year
past, to know that He is at work!
