Our theme is Passport to Peace. This is a family event, and at least one adult is expected to stay with their children both nights. 


VBS Registration is now open at https://forms.gle/ApvTEgqynpqtCpmH6. Please sign your children, grandchildren, neighbors, and friends up as soon as you can so we can plan for food and supplies. Sunday night, June 5, is Family Night. Bring the whole family for dinner from Food Trucks starting at 4:30. Dinner will be followed by worship and rotating through stations for crafts and recreation. Monday, June 6, children must bring an adult to travel with them as we explore peace as Jesus taught us. Dinner is served at 5:30 on Monday and VBS concludes at 8:00.  If you have questions, contact Mary Evans (270-791-7205 or maryameliaevans@gmail.com

Volunteers are needed to help with the meal on Monday. Please let Mary Evans know if you can help.

THE CHOSEN –Adult Sunday School Class-  Imagine you could see the life of Jesus through the eyes of the people that walked on earth with him such as the disciples, Mary his mother, the Pharisees, the children, and those he healed. The Chosen is a TV series about the life of Jesus and brings to life people in the Bible, using the historical context of life at the time of Jesus. The series comes recommended by Nancy Keyser and Catherine Reber. This class meets in the Fellowship Hall at 9:00. We will watch each episode together and then have a discussion as time allows.  


SATURDAY MEALS  Lovelyn Williams has agreed to serve as the coordinator of our Saturday Meals Program.  Judy Clarke met with Lovelyn and shared information and forms.  Judy requests, that if you have been a volunteer, that you continue show the support and love that you have shown Judy and our church’s participation in the past.  We look forward to Lovelyn’s enthusiasm and leadership in the Saturday Meals program.  (Our church sponsored dates for 2022 are July 23 and October 29.)
