This is right before AWANA Awards Night, so many of you would be coming that night anyway. PLEASE BE ON TIME! We will be going over information and passing out paperwork for all of the camps! You need to come even if you have been to one of these activities before – THERE IS NEW INFORMATION FOR EVERY CAMP!
Thank you for your support and for giving to Operation Christmas Child! During the month of May you can bring in matchbox cars, children's jewelry and hair accessories. Place your donations in the collection bins in the hallways of the church. Remember that all items must fit in a shoebox!
VBS is just around the corner and we need your help! If you would like to volunteer to serve in VBS as a teacher, assistant, or craft worker, please contact Amy Sweeney at 244-2975, ext. 120 or by email as soon as possible! We also have signup sheets in the main hallway of the church.
Also we are in need of the following to be donated for use during VBS:
Children's plastic rocking horse (will NOT be returned)
Sheets – plain white, off-white, or light blue preferred but we will take any solid color sheets
(sheets will NOT be returned)
Cardboard paper towel tubes
Artificial greenery of any kind
Plastic drink holders – the kind that come around a 6-pack of drinks
Please keep in mind that NONE OF THESE ITEMS WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU! If you donate it to us, we will be using it and not returning it! Items may be brought to the church beginning today. There will be a collection area at the front office entrance and at the Preschool entrance. We also need to borrow a brown pop-up or tailgate style tent for our drama in VBS. You will get it back!
There will be a VBS volunteers meeting Wednesday, May 29 from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
