The 2018 LTC season is off to a great start! We’ve had over 40 turn in registration forms and several new families joining the effort for LTC. I have to confess, that I still need to turn in my 4 forms, but at least we’ve all got a little time until the due date.
Speaking of due dates, please have your forms completed and turned in by Sunday, October 15. Why do you ask? The more information that our coordinators have the easier it is to plan practices, coaches and all the scripts that will be needed for drama and puppets. Please have those turned in by that date. William and Angela Clifford have been doing a great job of taking on the work that was passed on from Erick Boggs, and we all can help even more by turning forms in on time.
Why is LTC such a good work? The work of LTC ties in directly with the driving purpose for the Riverchase Children’s Ministry that comes from Deuteronomy 6:6-7, “…these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” LTC is an opportunity for your family to live what we read in the command God gives the Israelites just before they are about to take the land promised.
LTC is also more than just about going to convention. In fact, you can participate in any of the “pre-convention” events without actually going to Mobile. You have opportunities available such as service projects, teaching bible classes, memorizing scripture, helping with worship service, serving food at Wednesday meals, attending the nursery and many more ways listed on our LTC webpage. LTC is all about training our children to serve Jesus Christ.
If you have questions about the opportunities that exist, please feel free to ask me. I would be more than happy to give your family ideas on how to participate. My hope and prayer is to see all our families actively serving Jesus our King.
