From the Pastor's Pen
Once again, we had a wonderful Kids Klub Summer Edition (VBS) with a great crew of workers under the excellent leadership of Tonya Hockenberry, our Children’s Ministries Director. Thank you to everyone who served, prayed, and gave. We had a great program on Sunday morning as we worshiped with the children in the Albion Park and then had a very nice picnic together. We reached about 70 children with over 50 attending in a single night. Some of the children accepted Jesus as their Savior and one child wants to be baptized. We were able to raise over $500 for the Albion Volunteer Fire Department and some of them joined with us for the picnic and brought a fire truck to for the children to check out.
Children’s ministry continues to grow and be a vital part of the DNA of the Albion Nazarene church. We were able to reach some new children and their families. I was blessed to see one of our new families from last year’s VBS working at VBS this year. We are starting a new Sunday School class in September to divide the age groups into smaller age ranges. We welcome Billy and Rachel Sadler as the new co-teachers. We are starting children’s Bible Quizzing this fall and will again be doing a Christmas musical.
Be in prayer for all of our students (at all levels in their education) and for our school employees. We have teachers and employees in multiple school districts who are representing Christ through their lives in the public education arena.
Please read the newsletter carefully this month, as more of our ministry leaders have written articles about their area of ministry. Thank you to each of them for taking their time to keep us informed and to Denise Hites for pulling it all together into an attractive format.
In Christ’s Love,

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my
house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not
throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing
that there will not be room enough to store it."
