Emmanuel UCC, Faith, Stairville UMC’s Planning Vacation Bible School Program

Vacation Bible School volunteers from the churches of Emmanuel UCC, Stairville UMC and Faith UMC are meeting on Monday, June 1, at 7:00 pm at Emmanuel UCC to plan this year’s program. At this planning meeting, we will review the materials for this year’s VBS, SonWorld Adventure Park. SonWorld Adventure Park is based on a theme park, with different “attractions” representing the different areas.

Volunteers are needed to lead the crafts, games, story center, music and snacks areas. There’s great decorating ideas, too, for those who are creative.

Through the program, we will help children Choose to BELIEVE that Jesus is God’s promised Savior, Choose to ACT and care for others, Choose FORGIVENESS from Jesus, Choose to OBEY Jesus even when it’s hard and Choose JESUS as our guide and source of wisdom! If you are interested in leading or being a helper, we welcome you to help plan this special event to help our children learn to make good choices.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. Our greeters will be Diana Decker and Mary Eroh and the liturgist is Camille Daniels. Come, join us for worship this Sunday. We welcome everyone into our Father’s house.

Upcoming Events include:

May 27 –Kids Choir at 6:30 pm; Chancel Choir at 7 pm
