Staying Connected at South Point
July 3, 2020
Hello South Point Families,
During our quarantine time, some of our families have been meeting together on Tuesday afternoons at 2 pm on Zoom to do a craft together and just to chat (Whatever Is Society led by Jessica and Emma ). I understand that this could be difficult for some with the timing, or not being able to go on Zoom, or maybe just feels impossible getting all of your children to sit and work together at the same time in front of a computer screen....whatever the reason we just want you to know that we care for you and want to help. We want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to participate if they would like to. So, here are some different options to help us connect together... if there is something else that could help, please let me know. I would be happy to deliver a Timmies and remind you of what a great job you are doing as a parent :)
Here are some options for the summer:
1. The Whatever Is Society will continue to meet every other Tuesday at 2:00 pm on Zoom for the summer to do a craft together and share how we are doing and just to be an encouragement to one another (July 7, 21, August 4 & 18th).
Below you will find the craft that we will be doing this upcoming Tuesday with all of the instructions and materials needed. If you would like, we would love to drop off the materials you will need so that you can participate together with us or if it works better for you, you can do it together with your family on your own. At the bottom there are some Bible verses and discussion questions that you can use while you are making the wind chimes.
***If you would like me to deliver the supplies needed for this project, please let me know by Sunday night, so that we can deliver to you on Monday*** - I think the kids would really like to receive a special package just for them :)
2. Family Friendly Campfire Services- we will be having 2 campfire services this summer -one on July 18th and one on August 29th at 6:30 pm
3. Teddy Bear Picnic - Saturday, August 1st at 2 pm at the church.
We will still be having our annual Teddy Bear Picnic this year. It may look a little different because of Covid... it will be outside, parents invited... but it will still be lots of fun :)
We hope that you will be able to join us for some of these activities :)
WHAT TO DO:
Start by gluing the craft sticks into 2 triangles. Place on top of each other to form a star shape and glue.
Cut 4 20″ pieces of jewelry wire.
Slide a crimp bead onto the end of one piece of jewelry wire, crimp to close. Start stringing beads in desired pattern, half way up the strand stop and add a large bead, crimp bead and close.
NOTE* Start and end with a large bead on each strand. The large beads hanging on the bottom will bang together making a sound and the other large beads will hold the star up.
Continue stringing 2 more strands this way.
String the 4th strand completely leaving only about 4 inches at the end.
Thread the 3 strands, 1 through each hole on the star, see picture above for reference.
Read aloud Psalm 98:4-9.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;
5 make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
6 with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.
7 Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.
8 Let the rivers clap their hands,
let the mountains sing together for joy;
9 let them sing before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples with equity.
Why does the Bible tell us to sing praises to God?
How does creation sing praises to God?
In what ways can you praise God?
How can the music of your wind chimes craft remind you to praise God this week?
Below you will find a list of different events that are happening digitally with our South Point Family. It is really important to us that we all stay connected during this time. Many of the activities we have planned will require the use of the Zoom App onto your computer or your phone.
If you would like to join us, please download the Zoom App (if you haven't already) onto your desktop computer or phone by clicking this link https://zoom.us/download and then click on the link provided at the time of the event. That should connect you :)
This social distancing affects all of us in different ways. It is really important that if you need something (groceries, to hear someone's voice...), that you reach out. If you need any help, please let Dave or I know and we would be happy to help you.
Be sure to join us in one of the weekly bible studies to learn more about Philippians - we have several groups available:
