Reading is alive and well at Northeast Presbyterian Church!

Our readers, ages 3 to 17, gathered last Sunday for our end of Children’s Summer Reading Club Ice Cream Celebration and what a time we had!

95 of my closest friends partook of ice cream with all the toppings, some goodies were given out, and a great time was had by all!

Special congratulations to our Grand Prize winners: GLENN SCOTT and LANDON TYLER (bookstore gift cards) and CHLOE DAVIS (winner of a Kindle)!

Of course, ALL of our kids are winners because they READ… and LITERACY is the biggest winner of all! I am so proud of these kids… over 100,000 pages read this summer. Very, very impressive!

So take heart, America! Literacy is not dead with the up-and-coming generation!

But does your Lamppost sit back and rest on its (Word of the Week) LAURELS??


We’re already off and running planning our next events for you and your family! Mark your calendars for FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22… 6:00 TO 8:30 p.m. as we bring back by popular demand… CHURCH FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT! Bring your family, some friends, and something to sit/lie down and enjoy a night out on us (FREE ADMISSION). We’ll even have some refreshments for you to imbibe in… popcorn, drinks, and candy… just like a real theatre, but without the jacked-up prices!

Also on the books, the sale our members wait all year for… our BIG ANNUAL MEMBERS BOOK SALE… SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3… 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Atrium. Stay tuned for more details in upcoming midweek updates. (And my apologies for the wrong date in the recent newsletter. Press time error!)

Our Lamppost is dedicated to lighting up your world with literacy as we light your way to HIM… KING JESUS! So, whether you partake individually or corporately, we’re here to serve with the finest books and media for you to enjoy.

Come “check us out” this week!
