Creative Christians 2015 - 2016 School Year

Introduction
Creative Christians 2015 Logo
Creative Christians September 2015

Welcome Back!!

We will be meeting in the North wing of NSUMC campus this semester on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 P.M.

Continuing with the "Mission Impossible" theme our special agents will engage in some intense missions that will require their special art skills and creativity.

September is the month to decide our direction, enroll, and train students and their families, and commit the future.

I will share the vision for our journey and some basic info but each "special agent" will have their own duties designed just for them based on their qualifications, interest, and abilities.

    Our vision includes sharing our Christian faith by:
  • Showing love to others
  • Praising God for our blessings
  • Sharing our gifts of creativity
  • Utilizing our surroundings
  • Reaching out into the community
  • Research and recording our journey
  • Having fun

This message will SELF-DESTRUCT when you delete it. If you choose to be a part of this team you will need to contact Janet Flournoy at headquarters (NSUMC) using the following code .... . .... . "The Lord Be With You."

Creative Christians Outreach

This year Creative Christians will be participating in outreach programs. Your involvement is essential to the success of the program.

Foster Care

We have prayer pals with the Kisha's Group Home for foster children. Through the year each CC student will have names of children to pray for during class. We would also make "care cans" with little trinkets and treasures, cards, and seasonal gifts.

September 1st

We have cards and bookmarkers ready to be delivered.

Our hope is that maybe the foster children can come to our Christmas sing-a-long (Which will be on Sunday afternoon!)

September 8th - 15th

This week we will be making tags for the suitcases that will be delivered to foster children ageing out at 18 years old.

NSUMC/ED Fair - September 20th

9:30-11:30

Please plan to spend 15 minutes to man the Creative Christians table

Sign up now for your 15 minute commitment:

The children can stamp visitors hands with code words so they can visit our mission possible classroom. They can lead people to the classroom for tours.

Congregational Care

For our congregation we have many surprises planned including Christmas accordion books for the elderly shut-ins. This project will be a joint effort between CC and the card ministry

We will also be involved in face painting at church events, puppet shows for the preschoolers and monthly sign-ups to serve as family greeters.

Greeters

One of our scriptures this month is "Ask, Seek, Knock, and it shall be opened to you."

If our families commit to one Sunday for the year we could make a difference to a visiting family. A family that would be a connection with our families.

Creative Christians families serve as greeters once a month.

Acrylic Rings

We celebrate every chance we can!!

Students designed and decorated acrylic rings

Jonah and the Whale
Creative Cooking

The kids were busy making pumpkin cookies with caramel frosting and cinnamon top pumpkin muffins. We prayed for Miss Janet and her family and miss her!! Our lesson was

Psalm 23

~Susan

Psalm 23 X


1)The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2) He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quite waters,
3) he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4) Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5) You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6) Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Oh! And don’t forget the submarine!

Whale of a Tale Play
The part the student plays was written by what I knew they were interested in. If your student wants a bigger part by way of being in more scenes or having more dialogue I can improvise. The script is not written in stone. If you are offended by anything please inform me immediately. Be prepared to give me an alternative conversation that fixes the script. All things come together at the end as it is written.
