Children’s Ministry this Month
Children's Ministry Kick-off! We will be moving everyone up to their new classes starting on Sunday, September 9. We are excited to start a new year with all of you! Please make sure you have registered your kids for their new classes, either at the registration desk or online.
In September we will be focusing on stories from the life of Paul, asking the question: When should we tell others about Jesus? Ask your kids to answer this for you! :) We will also be working together to memorize Philippians 1:20-21.
Parents, check out the Parent Notes on our website, at the bottom of the "Kids" page. Each week there is some information about our topics and our main points. You can follow the link in the weekly email to find the page too! Our teachers also have handouts each week that have some great suggestions for family conversations based on our lessons. We are blessed to partner with you to raise up kids who love Jesus!
We need YOU!
Please consider giving of your time to share God's love with the youngest members of our church family! If interested, contact Heather Swier at (616)836-0575 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We have openings available for you to:
- Care for Babies and Toddlers
- Play with 2 and 3 year olds
- Teach 1st/2nd graders
- Keep an eye on our hallways (ensure we have a safe environment for our kids)

Child Dedications, Sunday Service, October 21, 2018
Parents may dedicate infants and children to the Lord based on the model of Samuel in the Old Testament (1 Samuel 1:21-29), and Jesus in the New Testament (Luke 2:21-24). When dedicating your child, you publicly declare your desire to lead your children spiritually and teach them through both words and example what it means to love and follow God in every area of their lives. If you have questions about child dedication, please speak to a pastor. You can sign up to dedicate your child either at the connection station on Sundays or by calling the church office at 616.394.5500.
Trunk or Treat, Wednesday, October 31, 6-8PM
Come be a part of LVC's annual trunk or treat. Maybe you'd like to decorate a car, truck or motorcycle and hand out candy. Prize for best vehicle. Or maybe just come with the kids and/or friends and enjoy the fun and some doughnuts, cider, coffee and hot chocolate! To get involved or sign up your vehicle contact Robin Thomas at 394.5500 or email@example.com or see poster in lobby.
"Taste of Fall" Ladies Night, Friday, November 2, 6:30-9PM
Come for a fun night filled with your favorite fall food and games! Bring one of your favorite fall dishes to share... and a friend! Please make your own arrangements for childcare. You can RSVP on your connection card, at the connection station or by calling the church office at 394.5500.

Bring nonperishables and canned goods to stock the food pantry for Thanksgiving and Christmas needs! We will place all our offerings in the front of the church during worship.
Membership Luncheon, Sunday, November 11, 10AM
This gathering is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about Lakeshore Vineyard. Pastor Ken leads this discussion which covers the five core Vineyard Values, the vision and mission of Lakeshore Vineyard and an explanation of membership. There is no obligation to join Lakeshore Vineyard and this is a great opportunity to ask questions and get to know Pastor Ken and his wife, Robin. Call the office at 616.394.5500 to sign up today!
Lakeshore Vineyard is an "all-play" church meaning we desire a community where everyone benefits because everyone contributes. We believe that's how both churches and individuals thrive and grow. With that in mind, we'd like to ask you to look over the following service opportunities and see if there's one you'd like to try out. If so, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a time for you to "job shadow" an experienced person in that role to see if would be a good fit.
Office Volunteers Needed
We are looking for people who can regularly devote a few or more hours to help in the church office. Tasks include filing, sorting, making copies, writing emails and answering phones. Call 394.5500 or email email@example.com to talk to Kim Nyland about these positions.
