“Deep Sea Discovery: Diving into the Bible”
Summer Sunday School (SSS) runs now through Aug 22.
We’ve started our “Summer Road Trip” Summer Sunday school & have been learning about Moses & the Israelites journey out of slavery. We’ve made Matzah bread & learned about the reason for Passover & completed a science experiment that helped us learn about the parting of the Red Sea, only we parted the “Black Pepper Sea” using a little water, black pepper & Dawn dish soap! We’ve learned that God walks with us through life & can help us when we are in tough situations just as he has the Israelites. Our Road Trip has just begun so I hope you’ll consider joining us every Sunday this Summer in person at 9 am!
The Sunday school kids worked hard & raised money for Heifers International to purchase animals for families in other countries!
They raised $160 & were able to purchase 6 flocks of chickens, a few bunnies & a $10 share in a pig! The program was called Animal Crackers & each week we learned how a different animal could help a family or even a whole village!
Vacation Bible School
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! All future knights of North Castle: Vacation Bible School will be in person the week of July 26 - July 30 from 6 - 8 pm. This year’s theme is “Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor!” “North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t what they think it is.
Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord & in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights & begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book.
They’ll explore Old & New Testament stories & discover different pieces of protective armor — the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith & the Helmet of Salvation — at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters & explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow & serve God. We’ll help the kids take up the gauntlet this summer & accept the challenge to “armor up” & be strong by remaining with God.”
Our quest will contain lots of fun, great music, snacks, games, crafts, and learning of Bible stories! Will you accept the challenge to "armor up" & be strong by remaining with God & sharing God's love with the world? Register today at www.myvbs.org/eandr to join in the fun! Ages 3 & up are invited & you’re welcome to invite/register a friend! It’s Free! THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS SUNDAY, JULY 18!
For those who are not yet ready for in-person VBS, an at-home/on your own version of this program will be available! Please let me know if you are interested in this option. I want to make sure everyone has a fabulous VBS experience this summer!
Looking forward to seeing you all at Summer Sunday school & Vacation Bible School!
