Just for You!
Did You Miss Out on Virtual VBS Last Week?
Not to worry! We have reopened registration and are offering a second chance to participate. Everything is online through a private Facebook group for you to do it at your own pace. Do the whole week in a day or spread it all out over several weeks!
Each day features a series of videos that lead you through the daily Bible story and theme through crafts, music, science and snack.
Registration is open
through July 29 and packets will be available on
Friday, July 31. The packets include most of what you need for the week and are $5/child. Each child will need their own packet. A few additional supplies, most of which you probably already have at home, are also needed.
We have created a Keller UMC Kids Ministry Facebook page to share announcements, spiritual formation resources, group chat opportunities and whatever else we can create to help us through the days ahead.
"Come On God, I Am Just One Person!"
Take in the two verses in Philippians 3:12-13 before Sunday. It is so important for all of us to stay focused and remember who and whose we are. Just as Christ grabbed hold of Saint Paul, Christ is seeking to touch us. Yes, we are just one person, but with Christ the possibilities will blow your little socks off.

Do You Need Help with Technology?

Important Health Concerns
During the Pandemic
Your Faith Community Nurses want to create an awareness for adults of any age about two important health care concerns that have been recognized during this pandemic. The first concern is that
people experiencing symptoms that could represent a true emergency are not seeking the help they need in a timely manner.
The second concern raised is that gravely ill persons are arriving in emergency rooms without advance directives to assist medical personnel in providing care that meets their needs and wishes.
