ExtraOrdinary bandannas ready for VBS week
Dear families,

The school year is ending with a last flurry of sending ceremonies, graduations and class parties. Parents, great job on guiding your children through another year (woo hoo! and whew....). I pray the summer months offer an opportunity to reset, rest and recharge. We all need it.

Just as school schedules are wrapping up, we are ramping up -- Vacation Bible School starts next Monday! My office is packed (!) with craft supplies, bandannas, Leader's Guides and more. We have 108 children from the church and community signed up to participate, and 55 youth and adult volunteers in place. What a blessing!

But we still have one last need. We need you to pray for us. We need prayer for last minute preparations (May everything get set up and be remembered...), for all our volunteers (Bless them with energy, patience and joy), for all the children attending (Bless them with open hearts, listening ears and new friendships) and safety (Watch over all our goings and coming and doings). Amen.

Check the church Facebook page for VBS and PresbyCamp pictures next week.

with VBS joy ,

We still have assist with Summer Church School classes. The sign-up link is below.
Lead teachers are in place but adult assistants are needed. No prep or planning required. Just show up and have fun.
