This summer, your youth will have the opportunity to serve by assisting the Cokes Chapel Childcare Center (CCCC) with “Water Days” throughout the summer.  Your youth may select to help any time, June 3rd through July 26th.  The CCCC needs volunteers to entertain the kids by playing with them during their water activities.  (The teachers do not get wet, so the extra help is needed, and the kids will LOVE having the youth there to get wet and interact with them!)  This is an opportunity for our youth to serve others while having fun!

 

·         Dates:  Monday-Friday; June 3rd-July 26th

·         Times:  10:00 AM and 3:00 PM each day

·         Our Goal:  for each Youth to sign-up to volunteer for at least

two time slots during the summer (They may certainly sign-up for as many times as they would like; i.e., every Tuesday at 10:00 am, etc.)

·         Please let me know by Friday, May 30th if your youth is willing to volunteer and if so, what dates and times.

 

I am looking forward to spending time with your youth this summer!  I know that through our time together that God will continue to grow us in relationship with both God and one another.  I am sure that this summer will be a special time when many memories are made, and many relationships are deepened.  Thank you!

TWO IMPORTANT CHURCH DECISIONS
Cokes Chapel continues to grow and respond to the best ways to serve you!  Recently Finance recognized the need to have an accountant review and manage our bookkeeping and financial records.  Finance requested Staff Parish Committee (SPR) to research, create a job description and search for the right person to fill this job.  
 
Church Council received the proposal from SPR to hire a Treasurer and make changes in Office Administrator job for approval on Wednesday, May 29.  
 
We welcome the following:
 
1) Marcia Smith, accountant, will be our Treasurer, managing Quick books, paying bills and other impacting financial business.  Marcia’s experience includes currently working with our Child Care Center, with a good overview of our system which will make our transition easier.
2) Gail Stone will continue to be our Office Administrator, handling the bulletins, communications and inquiries that come to Cokes Chapel.  Gail appreciates the change and has willingly agreed to shorten her hours so that we can accommodate hiring Marcia.
3) The impact for church and community:  Beginning Monday, June 10, office hours will be Monday thru Wed., 10-2 pm This may impact your accessibility and inquiries, so we ask that you make the needed adjustments to your expectations for answers, reservations, etc.
 
By lessening office hours/pay for Office Admin., we are  able to hire Marcia without an increase to our bottom line on the budget.  
 
We appreciate the hard work that both Finance and SPR did to assist us in bringing our administrative practices in line with the needs of the church.  Your understanding, as we make adjustments will be greatly appreciated!  Blessings and all good things are from God!
Peace,
Pastor Lisa
