Vacation Bible School
Posted on May 29, 2019 by Lisa Crismore
Our theme this year is "Rolling River Rampage - Experience the Ride of a Lifetime with God"! And we are trying something new!!! We are going to move the majority of the event outside! Please pray that the weather cooperates with our plans! Why?? We want our neighbors in the community to see what happens during this time together. We will be meeting under canopy tents, which goes with our river raft camping theme! Moving outside is also about putting our Open. Caring. Community into action by continuing to look for ways to reach outside the walls of the church and connect with our community. This will mean that there will be a little more work involved in taking down canopy tents, tables and chairs every night. So, if you would like to give us a hand with this, that would be great!!
We begin each evening with a simple meal from 5:30-6:00, followed by activities from 6:00-8:30. Friday is special with a special schedule and a pitch-in picnic for kids and parents with hots and hamburgers provided!
The youth will be doing some mission work again this year - one evening they will be distributing Good Samaritan Bags to the homeless downtown. Please consider donating the following for the bags: white socks, cheese and cracker snack packs, hand sanitizer, small toothpaste and toothbrushes, washcloths, hotel soap and shampoo, travel deodorant, bottled water, lunch size applesauce, snack boxes of raisins, granola bars, razors.
If your child or youth plan to participate, please help with pre-registering them. The forms can be found on the table outside the church office, and brought with you the first night of VBS. There are also music CDs available (one per family, please!) For more information call the office at 317-291-0308.
