Hey Kids – Check out what’s going on at the church!
Last Day of Sunday School:  (May 20)
Sunday school is done for the summer.  Please join us for VBS the week of June 3rd.  A big THANK YOU to all our teachers and assistants for teaching our youth this year.  We hope you have a great summer and come back next fall to lead the youth again!
Vacation Bible School:  (June 3 ~ sign up now)
Anchor your kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through every storm in life with this year’s “Shipwrecked” Vacation Bible School.  All kids from age 4 to fifth grade are invited to participate.  This year’s VBS will be held from Sunday, June 3 through Thursday, June 7 from 6:00-8:30 pm.  This five-day experience helps kids discover that they are rescued by Jesus.  This adventure is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences that kids see, hear and touch!  Bible Point crafts, team-building games and cool Bible songs are just a few of the activities that help faith come alive into everyday life.  Please fill out a form and turn it in to the church office.
We are asking kids in sixth grade and higher to help out with this year’s VBS as assistant crew leaders, station helpers and with other tasks.  We also need plenty of adults to help out with this year’s adventure.  Please contact Bobbi Hestdalen or Pastor Chris for more information.

PS – If you would like to help our Sunday School program in any way
(ie: teaching, substitute teaching, being that extra set of hands in a classroom, helping with attendance, etc), please contact the church office or stop in the office Sunday morning during Sunday School.  We can always use a spare pair of hands!
