    shifts on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday &

    Sunday. The early shift is 5-9 p.m., and the late

    shift is 9 p.m. - 8 a.m. You can volunteer for 1 day

    a week, or 1 day a month, whatever fits your

    schedule. If you are interested in sharing God’s

    love with other women, please contact Gale

    Walker at 231-347-0363, ext. 3.


    Which is a greater legacy to leave? Owning a

    multimillion dollar corporation that employs

    hundreds of people...or focusing on home and

    successfully raising beautiful & brilliant children

    or working to share the Gospel and stop the spread

    AIDS among the tribes of Africa? The answer is

    simple. The greatest legacy will be left by the one

    who was obedient to run in their God-given lane.

    Don't fall into the trap of comparison. Success is

    knowing YOUR lane this season.

    Is your child considering baptism? Stop by the

    sign up sheet in the foyer and pick up a child

    appropriate guide to baptism.

    Thank You For Another Successful WLCC

    Day Camp!

    By the time this newsletter hits the press and

    website, Kids Camp 2017 will have come to an

    end. Over the past month we’ve had a dozen

    different people working to make Rainforest

    Adventure Day Camp a reality. I’m so thankful

    for their help with organizing the adventure. Their

    servants’ hearts and willingness to allow God to

    work through them are a blessing. I have no

    doubt that this year’s Day Camp has been a

    wonderful success. Thank you to everyone who

    provided time and resources and the many prayer

    partners, all, who helped make the week an

    unforgettable, life changing, God inspired

    experience for the children. To Him be the glory!

    Children’s Ministry  Dorothy Prins, WLCC Children’s Ministry Director

    This is a piece I came across written by Lisa Jacobson

    ( Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! -


    How Do You Bring Up Children Who

    Genuinely Love Jesus?

    Our children are people, not projects. We

    just can’t turn our kids into a Jesus-project. Above

    all, they need to see and feel that they are deeply

    loved and that you truly love Jesus yourself.

    Children are little people with tender souls, so

    tend them gently.

    Our genuine love for Jesus has a powerful

    impact. Children are incredibly perceptive and so

    as parents we need to be the “real deal”. Not

    perfect (kids care way less about this than we

    think), merely authentic.

    The church cannot replace us as parents. We can’t leave it up to the youth leader, the youth

    program, the Sunday School teachers, or even our

    awesome pastor to lead our children to Christ.

    God made you the parent of your children and

    they need YOU to teach and disciple them.

    And a parent cannot replace the Holy

    Spirit. It’s true. We have much to offer as the

    parent as we guide and direct our children, but

    only the Spirit of God can transform their hearts.

    So let’s not do this in our own power, but rely on

    Him to do the real work.

    Rejoice in the victories. This is very impor-

    tant. If your child does something kind, something

    honest, or something obedient – then rejoice!

    Maybe they have some areas (even lots of areas!)

    that they still need to grow in, but don’t let those

    be your main focus. Instead, celebrate each little

    step of victory!

    Discipleship is an ongoing process. Rather

    than looking for immediate results, patiently sow

    the seeds and pull the weeds. What it might look

    like today in your home doesn’t determine how it

    will always be. Take heart, my friend, for you are

    doing something wonderful for your children with

    your loving persistence.
