Our 'Around the World in 5 Days' Vacation Bible School theme needs luggage to help make it feel real as we travel by plane, boat, train, hot air balloon and space shuttle to help those in need.  If you are willing to loan a few pieces of luggage, please label them and bring to Room 003 by June 14.  They will be placed back in this room for pick up after June 19.  If you are able to donate snack or lunch items, check out the remaining needs on the bulletin board across from office.  Bring items in no later than Sunday, June 14.


Through the first week-end in August, we combine our elementary-age classes to include children those who have just completed Kindergarten-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade. Leaders will include parent volunteers, Amy Howell and Melinda Sandkam. The older class attends worship on first Sundays, and all elementary ages are invited to attend worship on July 5. (See our refreshed and replenished children's worship books in the library. We welcome your creativity in decorating our cover pages.) All other age groups remain the same. Children are invited to "move up" to new age groups on Sunday School Kick Off in August.
