Vacation Bible School! July 29th - August 2nd, 9:00 am - noon. We're excited about plans for our VBS this summer! We'll be using the new curriculum from ELCA World Hunger, "Who Is My Neighbor", based on the parable of the Good Samaritan. Each day children ages four year through sixth grade will participate in engaging activities that reinforce the them of what it means to be a true neighbor in relationship with the people God places in our midst. There will be meaningful Bible lessons, energetic outdoor games, rousing singing, fun crafts and tasty, nutritious snacks. In addition the youth will learn about the work of ELCA World Hunger throughout the world and they will lead our congregation in bringing in "Noisy Change" donations.
Senior Prayer Partner Program. The Council has decided to extend our Children's Prayer Partner Program concept to include Seniors. This program is for people 55 and over who wish to have someone pray for them. Other needs might come up (such as being taken to the library once a month), but the basic concept is daily prayer. We are asking people to self-identify for either category. 1) I would like to be prayed for or 2) I would like to be a Prayer Provider. This ministry will take on a life built in the Spirit and will bring the congregation closer together. If you would like to participate, please leave your name in the office or call me!
