VBS At Christ UMC Is June 1-6

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Vacation Bible School at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, will be June 1-6 with two sessions:  Evening: Sunday-Thursday, 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Morning: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-noon.

At Weird Animals VBS, kids discover that Jesus’ love is one-of-a-kind. Weird Animals is a habitat filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, cool Bible 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.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us in the "Tail End" Friends section each day/evening (30 minutes prior to dismissal) because that’s when we’ll be having a daily celebration of Jesus’ love you won’t want to miss.

Register your children for this life-changing adventure with the church. 

The Ladies Supper Club for women over 50 will meet Tuesday, June 3 at 6 p.m. at J. Alexanders at Hamilton Place. Reservations are necessary. Call Ann Boleman at 855-870.
 

Join us for Business Women’s Lunch on Tuesday, June 10, 11:30, at the Sheraton Read House. We will discuss Career Roadblocks. Learn about common barriers we all come up against and how to overcome them. Free parking.

Lunch will be ordered from the Porter’s menu and the cost is $15.60.  Space is limited to 35 so register early.
