The Education Team is offering a Vacation Bible School this summer. The dates are Monday-Friday, June 10-June 142019, 9:00a.m. to 12:00 Noon. The theme this year is “To Mars and Beyond”. We will explore the wonders of God’s universe together, becoming voyagers on a journey through space, seeing where God’s Power can take us. We will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moonwalk. There will be lots of crafts, music, other fun activities, and, of course, very interesting bible stories. We will provide drinks and mid-morning snacks. We will provide lunch on the last day.


Children finishing kindergarten to those finishing fifth grade are welcome To register, stop by the church office to fill out an application. Please register by June 3, 2019.


We are also asking for volunteers. We need teachers (!) and helpers to assist with the activities. We also need five people to provide the snacks for one of the five days. There is a sign up sheet in the narthex.
