Thank you to everyone who helped in any way to make our VBS a success!  From all the donations both cash and supplies to helping with set up to all the volunteers during the week, we have a very generous church family! Thanks to Fareway for donating the paper sacks. The week was a success because of the committee of Jan Dodd, Denise Morris, Suzy DeJong, Cathy Gilliland, Sharon Shaulis and Karen Adams.

Sunday School:  Teachers and Second Adults needed!  Is this something you would be willing to give a try? This is a very rewarding way to serve the church. No experience needed.  Just caring, compassionate adults willing to give of their time to help our children and youth grow in their faith. For Fall Sunday School teachers are needed in the 2nd-3rd grade class, the 4th-5th grade class & the high school class.
