Wilderness Escape VBS Staffing Needs

Wilderness Escape VBS is just over two weeks away and there are still many positions that need to be filled before then. We begin the fun at 9:00 AM June 28, and end July 2, at noon.
The following are some of the needs:

  • Opening and closing event leaders x 2
  • Nursery Worker x 3
  • Preschool playground leader x 1
  • Small group shepherd x 2
  • Folks to wipe down tables and chairs daily after VBS x 3
  • Setup of tables and chairs the Sunday before VBS begins x 3
  • Take down of tables and chairs after VBS is over x 3

Most of these positions require little to no preparation. Please take a look at these possibilities and contact Joe Bruce, HPPC Director of Children’s Ministries, if you have questions or would like to help.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who sent messages of sympathy and care to my family. Your support and prayers following the unexpected death of my uncle have been a gift. It is during such difficult times that the blessing of a loving faith community is truly known. Words cannot express my gratitude for your caring.

Happy Summer!

Any students who stop by will receive an otter pop. If your child attends another school, bring them by for a treat. We will have a low carb option for Type 1 kids, so they are welcome to receive a treat too. We'll be serving on Monday, June 21, 2pm to 2:45. Come celebrate with us!
