Be Wacky and Wild for God! Vacation Bible School

This is our very successful summer program for grades pre-K (age 4) through grade 5. It is held the first full week of August and is a themed bible study program of activities including music, theater, story telling, drama, and games. VBS (Vacation Bible School) runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 and is divided into 25 minute segments, each with a different emphasis. The children rotate through the various groups and the mood is lively and upbeat. There's always time for fun and snacks, which are included in the fee. Generally there is a main theme for the program such as "Power Lab" or "Avalanche Ranch" ; two recent themes. The program is designed to incorporate the teachings of the Bible into our everyday lives. We had a wonderful session in August 2013, when we learned that the Kingdom of God is Us!

The theme for August 2014 is "Be Wacky and Wild for God!" As in the past, camp was held the first full week in August, which was August 4 - 8, 2014. Children who are no longer young enough to be campers attended by becoming junior helpers. We had adult leaders who accompanied the children from station to station and helped to keep the morning running smoothly. If you would like to volunteer for this role, next year,  your child will receive half off the registration fee.

a gift to the church

Have you considered leaving a gift to your church in your will?

A gift in your will can have a huge impact on the life of your church. For many churches, regular giving is absorbed in ‘keeping the show on the road’ –paying the parish share, insuring and heating the building, repairing the roof and so on. A gift from your estate can help to ensure that the parish continues for generations to come.

Gifts in Wills are an important part of Christian giving. Many of us give regularly to the church each week or month from our income; why not from our estates too? It’s also a way to give thanks to God for the gifts of your life and lifetime.

When we genuinely see ourselves as God’s stewards, entrusted to use His gifts to us for the good of our families, the Church, the needy and in thanksgiving, we should also take Will-writing seriously – setting God’s affairs in order and stewarding them wisely to the end of our time on earth and beyond.
