To Mars and Beyond!
Winter is here, but summer will be here in the blink of an eye! Melanie and Joan are very excited about this coming year’s theme for VBS: To Mars and Beyond from Cokesbury. Each day has a new story featuring a character who by the power of God was able to do an important job and experience God in a new way. Our stories for the week feature Daniel, Esther, Jesus and the parable of the good samaritan.
The dates for VBS will be July 15-19. We are looking to have positions filled by March. We are looking for some co-leaders for groups, assistants for activities like recreation and snack, and those who would be willing to help out with set up, small tasks throughout the day and clean up at the end of the week.
Please prayerfully consider what your VBS role might be this summer. You can contact Melanie Hartley or Joan Leaman to sign up and for information. The starter kit has been ordered and we are starting to gather decorations and supplies! We will be in touch with all volunteers with information about meetings and planning. Here are the areas we are are still looking to fill:
· Group leaders: Kindergarten, 1st grade; 3rd-6th grade
Looking forward to hearing from many of you as we anticipate a rich and rewarding experience for the children of our church and community, and ourselves, as well!
