Ahoy!

We're ready to SET SAIL to an UNCHARTED ISLAND!

Join us as we learn more about being ANCHORED in God's truth!

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Vacation Bible School is fast approaching and we would love your help!  This year's VBS dates are June 26th - 29th. Our program runs 9a - 11:30a. The theme for this year is "Shipwrecked, Rescued by Jesus". Whether you can give a day, or the whole week, we'd love to have you on the team. If you are willing or able to volunteer, please fill out the form below. We thank you so much!!

WHY VBS?

VBS is a ministry designed to reach people of all ages, leading them to know and respond to Jesus Christ. It is one of the greatest evangelistic weeks in the life of the church, and it is so much fun!!!

As you look for summer fun and activities, think about the potential lifelong impact that a week of Vacation Bible School has.  It provides an "in your neighborhood" camp experience that focuses on Jesus, plus it's fun!

 

CLOSING PROGRAM

Friday, June 29th at 11:00a, we will have our closing presentation. Everyone is invited to attend. 

A "Hot Dog" lunch will be provided free of charge!

We are asking our children to wear Shipwrecked VBS T-shirts for this program. They are $5.00 each. Please include their size for ordering. Money can be paid to the church during regular business hours. Monday-Friday 9-4p, June 4-22nd. or by our first day of VBS, Tuesday, June 26th.

 

VBS CHILD REGISTRATION

 

VBS HISTORY

VBS has had one of the best track records for reaching kids and their families for Christ. The Southern Baptist convention reports every year:

•    2.7 million people enrolled in VBS

•    72, 925 faith decisions are made at VBS

•     56,386 people per year join Sunday school/small groups as a result of attending VBS

The first recorded Vacation Bible School can be traced back to Hopedale, Illinois in 1894. It enrolled forty students and lasted four weeks.  Most churches do not have four week-long camps anymore, but most offer 3 to 5-day camps. They usually consists of:

•    Interactive "Up beat" worship

•    Creative Bible stories

•    Arts and Crafts

•    Science experiments

•    High energy games

•    Wonderful "Exceptionally sweet" snacks

Integrated into all that activity, kids are hanging out with a bunch of kids their own ages and learning about Jesus!

Blood Drive

Donate Blood. Save a Life.

Join us from 9:00a - 1:30p, Sunday before and after all worship services. All donors will receive a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening! Please stop by, you just might save a life!

Tips for a Successful Blood Donation:

  • Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as red meat, fish, poultry, beans, spinach, iron-fortified cereals, and raisins.
  • Get a good night's sleep.
  • Drink an extra 16 oz. of water or nonalcoholic fluids before the donation.
  • Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods, such as hamburgers, fries or ice cream before donating. (Fatty foods can affect the tests we do on your blood. If there is too much fat in your blood, your donation cannot be tested for infectious diseases and the blood will not be used for transfusion.)
  • If you are a platelet donor, remember that your system must be free of aspirin for two days prior to donation.
  • Remember to bring your donor card, driver's license or two other forms of ID.
  • Wear clothing with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.
  • Let the person taking your blood know if you have a preferred arm and show them any good veins that have been used successfully in the past to draw blood.
  • Relax, listen to music, talk to other donors or read during the donation process.
  • Take the time to enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshments area immediately after donating.

Angel Tree

Angel Tree Roots

The Angel Tree is a unique program that started in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1979. It involves the community in a direct way allowing them to become personally involved by sharing with those less fortunate in their community. The program provides gifts of new clothing and toys to thousands of children who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas.

How You Can Help

Angel ornaments will be displayed on our Angel Tree in the lobby of the Sanctuary. Each ornament contains information about a child in our local community, including age, size, and Christmas wishes. Members are encouraged to take an ornament, buy gifts listed on the angel, and bring them back to the church by December 10th. Make sure to provide Christmas wrapping paper for your gift. PLEASE DO NOT WRAP THEM. Parents will wrap these gifts and give them to their children for Christmas.
