Book Swap for Westerly Hills Academy
May 14 th & May 16 th
This event will allow students to bring up to 5 books to swap for different books to read over the summer, when reading is so important! Volunteers may sign up HERE to:
  • sort books prior to the swap
  • assist students on the 14th (K-2) and 16th (3-5)

In addition, FPC will be collecting new/gently used books for K–5gr students. These books will provide students variety and will be used as “incentive” books for good behavior and attendance. Members may leave these with volunteers on Sunday mornings or place them on the book cart in the hallway behind the sanctuary from 4/28 –5/12. Questions? contact Heather Herring.

Join us this summer for Vacation Bible School: To Mars & Beyond where we'll help kids discover the wonders of God's universe. They'll become Voyagers on a journey through space, exploring where God's power can take them.

Registration is open to children ages 5 - 5th Grade (Must be 5yo by June 1, 2019). Childcare and preschool options are available for Volunteers. Cost is $20/child (We don't want anyone to miss VBS due to financial concerns. Please register and check the box for a confidential scholarship request when registering.)
VBS Star Guides
June 24-27/ from 9:00am-12:30pm
It takes lots of hands to make VBS run smoothly. Guides help our young children move from station to station and are an extra set of hands. If you are a youth-adult who can lend a hand any day or every day the week of VBS we'd love to have you be a part of our VBS team!
Click HERE to send Tammy an email with the day(s) you would like to help out. We are happy to sign off on community service hours for those who need them.
