Next week (June 26-29) is one of the most exciting weeks of the summer here at Christ United Methodist Church! We will host our 2017 Vacation Bible School “Wesley Village.” Each day our children will watch dramas, learn new songs, listen to stories, create crafts, and have fun with their friends, all while learning about John Wesley and how he formed the Methodist Church.
Our congregation can support Vacation Bible School in the following ways:
- This year we are partnering with the United Methodist Women here at Christ Church and their ongoing ministry with Hampton Elementary. We encourage everyone to bring school supplies (pencils, crayons, markers, colored pencils, notebooks, glue sticks, etc.) to Bible School each day to help with our VBS School Supply Drive benefiting Hampton Elementary! Our Thursday evening offering will go to help our efforts at Hampton Elementary School.
- Volunteer! We still need volunteers—specifically 1 leader for an elementary group, as well as a few more spots to fill in the Craft Village. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can share your gifts with us.
- Pray specifically that each participant, parent and volunteer will grow in God’s love.
- Join us for the Bible School Finale! You can hear and see what the children have learned throughout this amazing week. It will be held in the Sanctuary at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 28.
- Provide our fantastic youth and adult volunteers with snacks! Please consider sending one or more goodies to our volunteer snack room. These folks are not picky; they like fruit, veggies and dip, cookies, cakes, muffins, bagels, breakfast casseroles, or anything. You can drop your goodies off in the morning at either the big kitchen in the Fellowship Center or in our Break Room (Room 101).
Our hope is that our children and adults will leave this week with the love and passion that John Wesley had for God and for our great Methodist Church.
