Got Sneakers?

Creation Kids will be collecting Sneakers! What kind of shoes? They MUST BE SNEAKERS and in pairs. Sneakers ONLY – Old, retired, too small – we will take them all. Where do I drop them off? The collection box in the children’s hallway upstairs by the BIG room. Raise Money for what? The Children’s Ministry will be giving the proceeds to Shoes for Kids. This is an ongoing mission! Did You Know? Most people throw away their used sneakers every 125-200 days without ever thinking about recycling.

The process of manufacturing sneakers produces large amounts of CO2 which contributes to the serious effects of climate change and global warming. Recycling and reusing sneakers keeps sneakers out of...

Remix Musical We are so thrilled to begin preparations for our children’s musical. This year we will be performing the show, “Tell Me the Truth.” There will be many areas for your child to participate, including speaking roles, a singing chorus, and even singing solos! If your child is interested in a speaking role, they will need to audition. Auditions will be held on Wednesday, February 28th at 5:30 PM in the Sanctuary. Please keep in mind that a speaking role means your child will need to be able to speak comfortably in front of a crowd. There is a limited number of speaking roles, so please work with your child to prepare them for the audition. Audition scripts and a character list are below. The audition will consist of reading lines from the script. Rehearsals for the musical will be on Wednesday evenings during REMIX Music, 6:30-7 PM with two performances on...
