Week of June 25, 2017
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL – JULY 10 – 14
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is back again for our sixth year in a row! Open to children aged four years old through fourth grade, it will run Monday, July 10th through Friday July 14th from 9 am to 12:30 pm. There is an additional “Stay and Play” session from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm.
At VBS, we will explore Bible stories through games, drama, song and special cooking activities. Our VBS community will get to participate in outreach activities to feed the hungry and to provide school supplies for students in need. The cost will be $40 per child (if a parishioner, max $100 per family). Non parishioners attend for free, (donations welcome)!
Rising 6th-graders, middle-schoolers, and high-schoolers are encouraged to serve as junior and youth leaders. All participants—VBS campers, junior and youth leaders—need to complete the online registration forms.
Parents and Teens, We Need YOUR Help! Parents, grandparents, and youth will have a great time helping with VBS. There will be crafts, stories, cooking, and lots of opportunity to play! If you can volunteer – for the whole week, one hour, or anything in between – please register as a volunteer and let us know how you can help!
GALLIC SAMPLER ORGAN RECITAL
Mark your Calendars for an Organ Recital! On Friday evening, September 1 (the beginning of the Labor Day weekend) Teddy Guerrant will play an organ recital entitled “A Gallic Sampler: French Organ Music Across Four Centuries” including works by de Grigny, Balbastre, Lefebure-Wely, Franck, Saint-Saens, Widor, Vierne, Mulet, Dupre, Langlais, and Durufle. The French theme will continue into the light reception following with petit fours and champagne, so put this on your calendars now as a fun and festive way to kick off the end-of-the-summer holiday weekend!
