Next All-Chapter Meeting November 21

You can find our chapter schedule under “General Information”.

Parent Volunteer Opportunities 

I have compiled a list of needs for our chapter and described them in a document under Just for Parents > Parent Volunteers. Some of them have a more extensive description linked to their title. Please look them over and prayerfully consider how the Lord has equipped you and may be calling you to serve. Some positions are ongoing and others are only once or twice per year. Please contact the sponsor if you would like to volunteer or want more information.

Tournament Practice 

YSG students will have the opportunity to practice any of their YSG presentations and limited prep at a Tournament Practice December 14, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm at Front Range Alliance Church. Cost is $15 each. Younger students are welcome to participate (free) as BPS timers while parents evaluate during the rounds. Dads are welcome.  Bring a lunch and snack to share. We’ll have a great time practicing and getting to know parents and students from other chapters.

 Christmas Party/Showcase 

Dec 12 is our last meeting before our Christmas break. Invite family and friends from 5:30 – 6:00 as we share the presentations we’ve been working on and enjoy snacks. (Each family should plan to bring a snack to share.)

 Christmas Stroll Platform 

Our chapter will be strolling the streets Dec 21 from 2-3pm in Old Colorado City, presenting a choral reading with popcorn quotes and Christmas memories. See more detail in Platforms > Platform Opportunities. Contact Yvonne Hagood to sign up by Tuesday, November 19.

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

1.  Practice reading or reciting your presentation using projection. Practice how you would need to project in a small room, in a large room, or outside. Remember, you don’t want to scream to be louder. That will hurt your audiences’ ears. Project using your diaphragm (tummy muscles).

2.  Memorize Phil 2:3-4 using the sign language and hand gestures Kimberly taught during chapter.

3.  Review the most important public speaking skills on page 13. Answers can be found in “Resources” under “BPS Workbook Answers.”

4.  Don’t forget to look for opportunities in the community to share your presentations.

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

1. Work on the YSG goals you set during chapter.

2.  Review pages 1-2 of God’s Grand Story and read through the corresponding scriptures listed in the back of the book.
