Bible Study
Sunday, June 16th, we are starting a new series on the Ten Commandments. Grab an outline and follow along!
Midweek NEWS
We have new leaders for our growing Wednesday evening programs!

As I step down from being the Midweek Coordinator, I'd like to thank Chelsea Bender and Emilie Baumann for agreeing to be the Midweek Co-Coordinators. This means they will oversee the Wednesday night events - scheduling, all Midweek teachers, Wednesday's nursery volunteers, snack prepares, etc.

Thank you, ladies! Next, I'm also no longer co-leading Midweek with Chelsea Bender. It was a great adventure to have Chelsea over the past year with some great, new ideas (while also allowing us to be with our own kids as needed) THANK YOU! Chelsea will now co-lead with Maggie Huls. Appreciate you ladies stepping up! I want to thank Jenn Moore for a year of volunteering to cover the two new babies!! A big thank you to Maggie Huls and Alison Rant for helping the older group with numerous tasks throughout the year. I appreciate everyone's hard work and valuable time!!

Pastor's Summer Bible Study
Why is Abraham important in Scripture? Who are the Israelites? What made David such a great king? Do you know the answer to these questions? Would you like to have a better understanding of the Bible? Join us for six sessions this summer for the Foundations of Faith Bible study. In this study, we examine the history and important events of Scripture.

VBS Volunteers Needed
We are looking for VBS Volunteers! We need 50+ people to help out with VBS. Jobs include; working with kids, food prep, decorations, set up & clean up, craft prep days, media, and floats, who are willing to jump in at a moments notice. Take a look at the sign-up board to see if there is a spot that you can help with. Take some time to pray about whether VBS is something that you would like to be a part of.

We have a few volunteer dates where we get all crafts prepared, games, decorations, and any other prep/clean up done:

July 10th 3:00-7:30, 20th 9:00-12:00, 21st 2:00-5:00, 25th 8:00-9:30

Please sign up to let us know if you can help. This is a great way to be involved even if you can't make it the week of VBS.
