June 2014


If your children or grandchildren have not yet attended Vacation Bible School, there is a treat in store for them. As they become immersed in Gospel stories, the reality of God’s love will take on a new meaning for their lives. They will also be challenged to share their faith in Jesus by participating in a mission project.

The children will learn three accounts of Jesus’ ministry, on and around the Sea of Galilee. Crowds of thousands were captivated then, as we are anchored today, by Christ’s word and actions. God provides safe passage through the choppy seas of our lives—now and forever! Now that’s amazing grace!

Registration is open for young people of ages 3-13 who will attend VBS from Wednesday, June 25, through Friday, June 27 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. We offer separate pre-school and school-age classes. A free, nutritious, child-friendly dinner will be served at five thirty to the group each evening. Then, at six p.m., the children will set sail with us to sing fun songs, do Bible crafts, share delicious snacks, play awesome games, and more. Special dress up nights and dancing will add to the fun. And, most importantly, your child or pre-teen will learn about Jesus’ amazing grace! To register for the program, stop by the church for a registration form or e-mail us at We can take down your information by telephone -- call us at 610-264-9693. Registration forms have also been mailed to parents of all cildren who were enrolled last year.

We hope you and your children will join us. Parents, we will be glad to provide opportunities for you to help us teach, to donate food, and to help prepare meals and snacks. If you have time to help--- just a little or quite a lot--- see VBS Co-director Carol Snyder, Sunday School Superintendent Eileen Tremblay or me for more information.

I will be praying for, and with, our children and volunteers each evening of the program. May God guide and bless all of us on this amazing adventure!
