Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: Throughout August, every Sunday had a children’s ministry training and subsequently a superhero fashion show has occurred (both DC and Marvel!) – with the tradition Batman shirt showing tomorrow!
However, a true children’s ministry superhero is Gay Brown. Her superhero ability include invisibility with impact, long distance coordination and speed, and musical strength and planning. Although on summer break and at sabbatical house in North Carolina, Gay has kept me sane, and all GPTV Explorer on track including recruiting and script planning!, and also vision planning for our new updated, old, updated space! Her gifts have ripple effect for leaders, parents, volunteers, and most richly: kiddos! Thank you, Gay for being my favorite superhero and – yes, I do want to be you when (if) I grow up!
We look forward to the season premiere and return of GPTV Explorer on Sunday, September 9!
