Vacation Bible School

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for VBS. All children 4 years old through 5th grade are invited to join VBS June 28- July 2 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM.  Watch for more info.  Please register NOW.  The sooner we can get organized the better prepared we can be!


Thank you for collecting egg crates and paper towel rolls.  We have plenty and no longer need these items.  If you have any clear plastic bottles, we need 20 more and are hoping to collect the most durable ones as they will become musical instruments.  Call Nancy Harrison at 926-0542 if you can help.

The VBS Committee


Needed for science: glass jars, clean plastic bottles (as catsup, mustard, syrup, shampoo, etc.), nets with holes that very small objects could sift through, spray bottles (for water), small plastic buckets with handle (like the ones for the beach), strong magnets, small hand mirrors, metal washers (both small and large), S-hooks
