Teacher Email #1
Dear Teachers, Translators, and Helpers,
Thank you for your willingness to be involved with Calvary Curriculum’s upcoming Children’s Ministry Conference on February 24, 2018. These conferences have been taking place for 20 years and some of you have participated in them since the beginning. Others of you are just joining in as new teachers or translators. We welcome you and are so excited for how God is going to use you at this conference. God bless you, and all those involved, for taking a step of faith to be part of this exciting day. This year’s theme is: THE NEXT GENERATION is Happening Now.
The conference is such a wonderful way to encourage the many leaders and teachers who are committed to the discipling of children. “‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
There will be a few changes this year with the new venue for the conference, so it will be important to read ALL the emails I will be sending (I will try to send one each month until the conference).
One of the changes this year is that there will NOT be a teacher’s meeting the morning of the conference. I will be sending most of the information by way of email. But, we WILL be having a TEACHER’S MEETING the SATURDAY BEFORE the conference (February 17), from 10am-1pm. This will be a luncheon. This will be a time when teachers and translators can meet and talk over their workshops, and we will also discuss any last-minute changes that may have occurred. You will be able to see the layout of the church, including the classroom(s) you will be teaching in. We will have prayer, and other things, then lunch.
Please KEEP all the emails I send and RE-READ them the week BEFORE the conference.
Again, this year, we will be setting aside a time of prayer for the first five minutes of each workshop. Prayer is faith in action; putting our trust in God and not in ourselves. We are in much need and we should be in much prayer. (Zech. 4:6)
So, remember to welcome those attending your workshop, explaining about the five minutes of prayer, and then pray. Once you are done with the time of prayer, briefly introduce yourselves (teacher/translator), and then start in with your workshop. We will talk more about this time of prayer in another email.
The reason for introducing yourself, is that it helps those attending your class to appreciate what the Lord has done and is doing in you, and can do in anyone’s life. To God be the glory.
For more conference information, you can go to: WWW.CCCM-CONFERENCE.COM. We will be updating this page from time to time. Also, I will be emailing more information as time goes on.
May you have a blessed Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for.
