Christian Education

July 2015

Thank You!!!

We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has worked with our youth this past school year.  We are fortunate to have so many volunteers to teach, shepherd, and lead our children.  We are planning a summer gathering for all those who work with our youth to celebrate your service as well as look ahead to the next Sunday School year.  We would love to have your input and feedback to help optimize the Sunday School experience for our youngest members!


VBS will be here soon!  This year we will be “Conquering Challenges with God’s Mighty Power” the week of July 13-17 from 5-8 each evening.  Children will learn about God’s power to provide, comfort, heal, forgive, and love us forever!  Registration forms are available on the Everest easel in the Welcome Center as well as on the church’s website (top right corner of your screen).  Registration is free and a dinner will be provided each night!  If you would like to volunteer, please let Michelle Pyrich or Linda Smith know.  We would love to bring you along on our Everest adventure!


Bible Pathways Summer break

Hello all.


We are going to suspend Bible Pathways for the summer - we have been struggling with attendance and our group has been dwindling. The last few sessions we have only had one person.


It has never been a "numbers" thing - but we seem to be at the point where we need to stop for a while.


The good news is that we have been through the entire Bible 1.5 times....all the way through once, and this time we got as far as Jeremiah.


We'll see if we can get some new ideas and participants for fall. We have tweaked day-of-week and time-of-day but it has not had any noticeable effect. 


Best wishes,

Rick & Kathy



Nursery Care: During the 10AM worship, nursery care is available. Please sign up or see Jenn Mayotte, our nursery coordinator.
