Dear Canaan EMers and friends,
This week’s e-newsletter highlights prayer requests for our children’s ministry. Here is a note from Nicole Lu, our Director of Children’s Ministry. – Tim Tseng
1. Pray for more volunteers from all services to be interested in working with kids at Canaan. We have many current teachers who would like to take a break but it’s hard when we don’t have new teachers signing up. Here are our current needs:–nursery room (9:30am-10:45am…need 1 volunteer; 11am-12:15pm…need 2 volunteers). The 11am need for 2 volunteers is very urgent because we’ve been having at least 8 kids in the nursery room with only one babysitter, and we need to get down to the safe ratio of 1:3.
–Sunday School teachers
–Children’s Worship speakers (11am to 12:15pm…urgent need for 3 new speakers especially for the summer months)
–Classroom assistants…need stable helpers at both 9:30am and 11am sessions, someone who can help out on a regular basis.
2. Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance for the Children’s Leadership Team (Sidney, James, Shirley, Nicole) as we begin to plan for in-sync ministries.
3. Vacation Bible School (8/2 to 8/6)
–pray for more kids to register (40 kids have registered so far)
–pray for help from church members with supplies
–pray for more volunteers to sign up to help out (25 people have signed up to help out; need at least 30 more people to adequately run the program).
Thanks again for praying for the above needs. Please let me know if you have any questions.
