    VBS 2015 – EVEREST

    June 8-12, our church will be transformed to the mountains of Nepal.  We will “climb new heights” as we learn how to conquer challenges with God’s mighty power!  A family dinner will be served at 5:30pm.  VBS activities will run from 6-8pm.  All youth entering kindergarten-5th grade are welcome to attend.  Registration is now open.

    We are also looking for lots of adult volunteers to make our VBS week successful.  If you are interested in helping with games, crafts, viedo, or as a group leader, please let Amy Jones know, or sign up in the Fellowship Hall.  Look for all the “snow”!

    Finally, we are in need of a few supplies to help us transform our church into our EVEREST Expedition Base Camp.  If you have any of the following, please contact Amy Jones!

    artificial evergreen (Christmas) trees

    tents

    batting

    sleeping bags, pillows, camping blankets

    camping/climbing gear: bungee cords, rope, backpacks, etc

    old white or grey sheets (these will be painted and cut so they will NOT be returnable)

    Planting Party

    Plans are underway to complete the landscaping project around the front side of the church.  A demolition crew plans to remove the planter boxes on May 16th.  So, we have a tentative work day planed for May 30th.  Please join us anytime from 9am-2pm to help plant, weed, and do any “clean-up” we need to finish to make our church look the best it can!  Please bring work gloves and shovels.  Contact Amy Jones with any questions.
