Plans are underway for VBS 2019!

       You are encouraged to mark your calendar now with the days and times of 2019 Vacation Bible School.  VBS will be a 3-day program in the evening the week of Tuesday, June 18th, Wednesday, June 19th, and Thursday, June 20th.  The theme this year is "CSI," which stands for "Christ Says It."  Children will investigate The Truth, explore God's Word, and discover God's love as presented through Jesus' parables of the lost.

We need volunteers to lead various stations (i.e. Games, Music, Missions, and Science), as well as those who would like to shepherd groups of children as they make their way throughout the stations each evening.  If you feel called to one of these important roles, please connect with Susan Nyquist at susanbjoyful247@gmail.com or the church office.

 


Opportunities for Service and Growth in our Church

       Our Jr. Church program allows our youth to have an age appropriate worship experience on the Sundays when communion is not served.  Deborah Baker prepares a program including music, Bible stories and activities to help prepare our children to embrace the worship experience that adults enjoy in the sanctuary when they enter 6th grade.  Deborah is in need of an extra pair of hands each Sunday to help with passing out activities and supplies, watching over children who need to leave to get a drink or use the restroom.  She has done all the preparation and presentation but just needs support.  Can you be that support for one Sunday a month or on occasion?  Please contact Deborah Baker at 317-322-0249 or 317-379-9865 or email her at dbaker6409@gmail.com if you can assist her and let her know what dates you are available.  Jr. Church is offered all but the first Sunday of the month.

We are also hoping to expand our Jr. Church program by offering a more individualized program for our younger children ages 3 through Kindergarten.  We are looking for teachers and assistants to start this new program in order to provide all of our youth an optimal learning experience in Jr. Church.  Please contact Debbie Specht at d_a_specht@yahoo.com or 317-439-4055 if you would have an interest in helping with this program for our younger children.  Remember Jesus said “Let the little children come to me ….” and we want to welcome them with Christ’s love and open arms!  Be a part of this exciting ministry
