Children & Youth Ministry News
TODAY there is childcare in the Nursery for children through age 3. Children 4-years-old through Grade 5 who attended VBS will meet in the Chapel then be dismissed to their VBS room for Sunday School. All other children 4-years-old through Grade 5 are welcome to join Sunday School following the children’s sermon. (Please note: rooms may differ from regular Sunday School rooms.)
We had a wonderful time rolling on the river! It was a great VBS week. The children learned about Jesus and the great adventure we share with him. They also had tons of fun. I think the adults had just as much fun and felt the satisfaction a job well and faithfully done. Thanks to all who participated!
