Providence Annual Church Picnic - Sunday, June 4

The Providence annual church picnic is just around the corner—Sunday, June 4, on the church grounds, just after the worship service. Mark your calendars, get your lawn chairs ready, and invite your friends! If you haven’t already, please sign up to bring a dish to go with the church-provided hot dogs and hamburgers. We need a head count so there will be enough for all. Get ready for good food, good music, and good fun! For questions or volunteering to help, please call or email Nancy McWhorter (NancyMcWhorter247@gmail.com or 803-608-4635) or Pam Carroll (pmouser@bellsouth.net or 843-566-4702).

 

Building Community Groups

We are made for relationship. Let that sink in a minute. 

 

Relationship with God and others is why we are here. One reason we come to church is to be with others who want those same things and to share our lives with encouragement, love and support.

 

This summer, we are going to be more intentional about being community. We are going to start Community groups to foster deeper relationships, encouragement, love, and support at Providence. 

Some groups will use the book, "Called to Community: The Life Jesus Wants for his People".  It is a collection of essays written by many authors around the topic of community. The essays are short and questions are included in the book. Participants will read the assigned chapter and come prepared to share questions, insights, thoughts, or just listen to others. We will offer this community-building study time beginning in June:

·       "Sunday Lunch Bunch" – this class will begin on June 11 and will meet mmediately after church @11:45. This will be followed by lunch out or the group could bring bag lunches. The meal is up to the group.   

·       Week-day group "Lunch and Learn"  will begin the week of June 12 on a day to be determined @ noon.  This group will decide where to eat/bring bag lunch, etc.

·       Also, starting in June, the same study will be offered on Sunday night (or some other night, depending on the group’s preference). This is the “Snack and Study" with snack supper at the church (members provide however they choose).  

Another topic will be offered by LeAnn Gardner and Marjorie Avent for a 6-week study of "The Road back to You" by Cron/Stabile using the Enneagram.  This begins on Sunday nights June 11, 6:30-8.

Nursery Worker Needed

Are you looking for an opportunity to work with children and provide a vital ministry to a local congregation?  If so, Providence Baptist Church on Daniel Island needs you!  Our Sunday morning nursery workers are vital staff members of our church who play a critical role in the ministry of childcare for our church members and visitors. 

We seek a caring individual who can work 3 hours each Sunday, arriving at church by 9:15am and working until 12:15pm.  The nursery worker will oversee greeting all members and guests as they drop their children off in the classroom before Sunday school and our worship service.  The nursery worker is responsible for initiating and engaging with the children and delegating volunteers to help with crafts, snacks, storytime, etc.  The nursery worker will also be responsible for leading clean-up efforts at the end of the shift and ask other volunteers to help as needed. 

The ideal candidate would have experience caring for young children, under the age of 5, and can plan, coordinate, and manage the morning nursery session with independent judgment, creativity, and a passion for ministering to small children.  To apply, please e-mail your resume and at least two references to David Woody (woody@providencecharleston.org) at Providence Baptist Church.  The compensation for the position will range from $12-$15 per hour depending on qualifications.
