Hey Youth – Check out what’s going on this month!
Please remember these young adults in your prayers as they move forward in their Christian faith.
Note to these students: There is a Confirmation picture CD for each newly Confirmed student in the church office.  The next time you are at the church, please stop in the office and pick up your CD.
High School Senior Graduate Information needed:
Do you have a student graduating from high school this year?  BSLC would like to honor your student in our May newsletter.  Please let the office know what he/she plans to do after high school.  The office also would like a picture to be hung on our board along with your student’s plans.
Update:  Even though the deadline has past, you may still submit your Senior’s information and it will be included on the bulletin board and we can include it in the June Newsletter.
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.
Confirmation Picture Display:
We are missing a Confirmation Class Photo of the 2016 Confirmation Class.  If you have a class picture from 2016, please bring it (or send a digital version) to the church office
Or if you have a good copy of any of the years that are printed as a 5×7 (not 8×10), please bring it to the church office and we can scan it in and get an 8×10 made.
Thank you to everyone who has previously brought in other class photos to help fill in our new Class Picture Display.
