Vacation Bible School 2019
Are you ready to travel to Athens, Greece?! During the week of July 29th through August 2nd, we are inviting children, youth and adults to travel to Athens to learn about Paul’s Adventures and what it was like to a Christian during the time of the early church. Children starting Kindergarten through 6th grade this fall are invited to experience Athens as part of a family group. Youth in middle school and high school are invited to be youth leaders with a wide variety of possible responsibilities. Finally, we need a few more adults to volunteer for a variety of roles to make Athens come to life. If you are interested in volunteering please contact, Sarah Laflamme. We will be accepting registration forms starting mid-May so please keep an eye out for more information!
What’s happening in SS?
Last Day of Sunday School Lessons and Pentecost Picnic
The last day of Sunday school classroom lessons will be June 2nd. On June 9th, our church family will celebrate Pentecost with an intergenerational service at 9:30am followed by our annual picnic. Children are encouraged to worship with their families.
Is God calling you to share your faith?
One way you can share your faith is to work with the children and youth of our church. The Christian Education Committee is already looking ahead to next year and ask you to prayerfully consider if God is calling you to work with our older elementary and middle school youth on Sunday mornings. Please reach out to Sarah Laflamme or Harry Johnson if you are feeling called to engage in the church community this way.

Daily Scripture Reading: The S.O.A.P. Method
Have you ever thought “I would like to read more of the bible, but I am not sure how to start?” Well there is a simple technique, called S.O.A.P. that can help you work your way through reading scripture. The “S” is for scripture. The Book of Acts is a good place to start! The “O” is for Observation. What do you observe in the scripture lesson? Next is the “A” for Application. How can you learn from what you observe and apply it to your life? Finally, “P” is for Prayer. Take some time to talk with God after reflecting on his word.
