Announcements SCHOOL SPIRIT SUNDAY It's Back-to-School time! Here is a blessing for children returning to school. Take a few moments this week to pray for our SHPC kids as they hit the hallways and start studying. God our teacher, we thank you for the gift of these children that you have entrusted to us. Bless them as they leave for school and begin a new year of study. Help them to be good listeners, to show respect to the teachers, staff, and classmates at their school. Protect them throughout the day during times of learning, study and play. Give them strength as they stand up against bullying, and live what they believe. May they always know that they are loved and valued by us and by You…no matter what. Amen

Interested in going “All In!”? Praying about coming to our new campus? We encourage you to talk to someone who has already raised a hand to say, “I’m all in!

Once in a Lifetime & Worth the Drive! See the Dead Sea Scrolls

KidStuf is a monthly family gathering time where kids and parents learn together about God’s Big Ideas! It’s a 45-minute, fun, digital interactive experience designed for families that typically takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

One of the most comprehensive exhibitions of Dead Sea Scrolls ever assembled is now on display at the MacGorman Performing Arts Center on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest manuscripts of the best-selling Book of the Ages — the Bible. This exhibition, titled Dead Sea Scrolls & the Bible: Ancient Artifacts, Timeless Treasures is open for viewing in Fort Worth, at Southwestern Seminary's MacGorman Chapel, through January 13, 2013.

KidStuf exists to partner with parents. We believe parents are ultimately responsible for the spiritual development of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). We recognize that parents have a whole lot more time with their kids than anyone at church— each year kids spend about 3,000 hours with their parents versus the 40 or so that they spend attending church on Sunday. No one has more influence over a child than his or her parent! So we believe that it is our role to partner with parents by providing a plan that will give them the tools they need to lead their kids spiritually.

Just outside the exhibition, the Qumran Simulated Dig Site lets visitors of all ages experience what it's like to be a real archaeologist. A hands-on experience where you can learn how archaeologists uncover the past through an interactive replica off the coast of the Dead Sea, it's the next best thing to traveling halfway across the world to perform your own Qumran excavation.

KidStuf is for elementary age kids (K-4th) AND their parents. 5th graders are also welcome, but most choose to attend the TRUE tween program with Pastor Mike during this same time. Our opening show of the 2012-2013 school year is right around the corner, so mark you calendars now to join us on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12TH, AT 6:30 P.M. IN THE FAMILY MINISTRY CENTER. We look forward to seeing you there!

CHILDREN AT THE LORD’S TABLE COMING SOON! Our Children at the Lord’s Table workshop will be offered this fall as part of the “Wednesday Night Live” programming on September 19, 26 and October 3, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Family Ministry Center. All children in 2nd-5th grades who would like to learn about the sacraments of Baptism and Communion are invited to attend these three educational and interactive sessions with Pastor Britta. Participants will receive First Communion and be recognized at worship on Sunday, October 7th (World Communion Sunday) at the 11 a.m. Service at William Cannon.

WESTCAVE CELLARS TOUR Join PrimeTime for a private tour and wine-tasting at Westcave Cellars. Then we will have a late lunch (about 3:30 p.m.) of BBQ brisket and fixings. Allan and Margaret Fetty, long time members of SHPC, started Westcave as a 3 acre vineyard in 1999. Since then, they've continued to expand, and in 2010, they began to produce their own wine — Westcave Cellars. We will carpool from SHPC at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6th. Cost of $15 includes the wine-tasting and the lunch. We’ll return to SHPC at about 5 p.m. Reservations and payments can be made in the narthex on Sundays, August 19th, 26th and September 2nd.

To sign your child up for the class or learn more about Children at the Lord’s Table in general, please contact Pastor Britta at or 892-3580, ext. 107.
