This year’s VBS will begin in just a few short weeks.  We will be hosting ‘Adventures on Promise Island,’ Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20, from 5 to 7:30 p.m..  A big thank you to all those who have already signed up to help.  We are still in need of a few good volunteers, some craft donations, and decorations to help make our church the island where God’s promises come true.  If you are willing to help, please contact Sara Laroche at 282-5969, or Mariangella Glaze at 760-8449.

“Registration forms will be available this Sunday. We will be accepting registrations through July 8.  All children 2 years old (and potty trained) through 5th grade are invited to participate.  Youth who have completed 6th grade, and older, are invited to help.  There will be child care for those children 2 years and younger whose parents are helping with VBS. 

“This year VBS includes a dinner.  We will gather each evening in the Sanctuary for opening activities and then eat dinner together with our small groups.  We will continue the evening with Bible stories, crafts, and games.  We will end each night with a closing activity in the Sanctuary.  Children will be dismissed from the Sanctuary each evening at 7:30 p.m. 

“The cost to participate in VBS this year is $10.00 for the first child in your family, and $5.00 for each additional child, with a maximum cost of $20.00 per family.  This fee will help offset the cost of dinner, a t-shirt for each child, and a music CD of the week’s songs for each family that participates in VBS.  We hope you will join us.” Mariangella and Sara
