Take the Bible Memory Verse Challenge this fall with your church friends and learn God’s Word by heart! Memorize one Bible Verse each week for twelve weeks. Recite your verse on Sunday morning to a church friend and add a heart to our Bible display. Our goal is to add a total of 350 hearts, representing 350 memory verses, by Sunday, Dec. 2. Choose Option A (basic), Option B (intermediate), or Option C (a little more challenging) below.
Many thanks to all who helped in any way to make Vacation Bible Camp (July 12-18) an awesome week of fun and learning. Each day, campers explored ways that Jesus rescues us: when we are lonely, when we are worried, when we struggle, when we do wrong things, and when we feel powerless. Dinner, music, crafts, Bible discovery lessons, games, skits featuring Pastor Ruth and Ms. Jen, and our KidVid cinema made for a lively program
while we were all “Shipwrecked” together for the week. Campers filled a treasure chest with daily food offerings for our Food Pantry—peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti sauce, canned tuna and canned fruit. Spectacular decorations transformed the Parish House into a tropical island complete with vines, palm trees and a waterfall. Visit the church Facebook Page for photos from each day.
The sanctuary will be open to the public after the Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28. Italian ices will be served on the lawn. Church and community members are invited for conversation and informal tours of this lovely historic landmark that all wish to preserve for future generations.
