Grillin’ with Guitars!

In the spirit of fellowship and summertime fun, we will be gathering once again to celebrate our sunny Sunday service with guitars a single service at 10a.m. every 3rd Sunday this summer. (weather permitting or it will be indoors!) The time has changed from year’s past to join both early and late services in worship & fellowship. Then, join Grill Master George Tromp for a pleasant, picnic-type  potluck! Hotdogs & buns, condiments, plates, plastic-ware, napkins & beverages are provided. Please bring a Dish to pass and  make it picnic-y style! If you’re not fond of hot dogs, you’re welcome to bring something else to throw on the grill. “Grillin’ with  Guitars” Sunday July 17th and August 21st!

Arts Camp/VBS Returns

Last year we tried something new for our Summer Vacation Bible School. The Arts Camp idea came from a program at a Colorado Episcopal Church and caught our attention. It was a successful 4-evening event during the middle of August and was attended by  church and neighborhood children alike. The earlier date this year, August 1 - 4, was selected to entice more children to attend  before pre-fall school activities begin later in the month. It also allows for parish members to attend Arts Camp before heading to  Church Camp later in August. This year’s theme is “PRAISE!” Campers will enjoy activities centered around four Bible stories: Creation, Noah’s Ark, Moses crossing the Red Sea and the Easter story. Craft projects will include making a rain stick, decorating  their Camp T-shirt, designing and creating a priest’s chasuble, sidewalk chalk drawings, a PRAISE mobile, music, dance and prayer components.  And campers get supper & a snack!! It’s a jam-packed, fun two and a half hours that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser. On  Sunday, August 4, Campers will present music & dance from their camp experience at the late service.
