VBS 2012

We’ll be on an Amazing Desert Journey this summer in VBS! Registration is open for youth entering 3-year old preschool through 8th grade (middle schoolers will have their own age-appropriate activities) and will be held July 22-26, 6-8pm. We’ll meet at 5:30pm Sunday, July 22 for a pizza party. Kids will meet friends, explore Bible stories, do activities, sing songs, make crafts, play games and eat snacks. There is no cost to attend, and we encourage kids to invite their friends, neighbors and relatives. To register,  click here. Paper registration forms are available in the church office for those without internet access. If you aren’t part of VBS yet, why not sign up today? If you can help full or part time, we have many levels of involvement to suit your schedule and interests. Talk to Julie Baumler or Sue Margheim on Sunday mornings or email them at baumler@iowatelecom.net or msmargheim@msn.com. A sign-up sheet for volunteers is on the table in the Narthex.
