Vacation Bible School

July 17 - 20, 6 - 8:30pm
Cost is $25/child until June 1 and $50 after June 1
Ages 4 - Grade 5 (Incoming)

At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. Shipwrecked is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible stories and songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!

Parents, while the kids are having their fun, you get to enjoy 4 date nights in a row while you know your child(ren) are well taken care of and enjoying the best of times.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at Sail Away Sendoff on Friday, July 20 from 7:30 - 8:30pm to celebrate all we have learned for the week

Bless Teachers

Bless Teachers

It is that time of year to start thinking about how we can bless the teachers and staff at Philip Reilly Elementary School. Each week on Sundays, we leave a treat for the staff to enjoy on Mondays. The absolutely love it and it makes Monday their favorite day. We provide a treat for about 40 people each week. It can be anything. The staff has really enjoyed healthy snacks over the past year like nuts, cheese, healthy popcorn, veggies, and fruit. But, they do enjoy donuts, cookies, and bagels as well. It does not have to be something fancy. Also, you can put refrigerated items in the fridge on Sunday, and I have a friend who will pull it out in the morning.  If you need ideas or have any questions please contact me Amy Hakola. 

Thank you for serving!
