No Chapter meeting March 28 due to Spring Break


Opportunity to help raise funds for Melissa and Joshua’s uncle: April 6, 2013, 7:00 at First Evangelical Free Church. Everyone is invited. If you have scripture presentations or perform musical or vocal Christian music and would like to participate, please contact Vicki Morgan at 

Chapter Presentation: Mark your calendars for April 12 as we present God’s Grand Story at Springs Community Church for a Resurrection Celebration. Chapter SHINE families and those in the community are invited to join in the celebration. From 6:00 – 8:00 everyone will rotate through 3 different activity stations and end with the program starting at 8:00 (that’s us). We will need to cut the last station short and meet up at 7:30 to run through our program so we’re ready to go at 8:00.

Please wear black pants/skirts and collared white shirt and plan to arrive at 5:45pm.

In lieu of having a special practice meeting prior to our presentation, ALL chapter members will meet on April 11. Please review the schedule if you have questions about dates and times.

Chapter Dinner: Mark your calendars for April 4th! Look for the coming e-vite to know what to bring. Students will present their interpretations and new YSG presentations.

Beginning Public Speaking Homework (BPS) ages 6-10yrs

1.  Use the feedback you received last week to improve your interpretation presentation. It should be fully memorized for the final presentation April 4. You can find more information on page 48 of the BPS book.

2.  Read through God’s Grand Story in the little green booklet until you’re familiar with it. Then memorize the BPS and BPS+ Bible verses for our Chapter Presentation found at the end of the presentation script. (Presentation Script is found under Resources.)

Young Speakers Guild Homework (YSG) ages 11-18yrs

1.  Memorize your parts for our Chapter Presentation. This needs to be fully memorized so we can work on blocking this week. You can print out your own copy of the Presentation Script found in Resources. Here are some suggestions:

- Practice by reading through the script at least once in the morning and once at night.

- Read through it as a family, having different family members take parts so you can practice your part and when you need to speak.

- As you read it, picture what you will be doing as you say your part.

- Carry the script with you and read through it when you have spare time.

2.  Work on your Favorite Bible Verse Presentation.

3. Complete pages 21 – 25 in Activity #1. Look for opportunities to practice your limited preparation skills in conversation this week and record them on page 28. We will continue to practice Limited Prep during small group the next few weeks so look over the Limited Prep Topics from the ICC website.

4.  Complete pages 58-59, 62-63 in Activity #2. Be looking for opportunities in the community to use your new skills and record them on page 61. We will be practicing “Salesman Squabble” next week.
