Want A Free Vacation for Your Kids?

READY, SET, GO…TO VBS

“Dash” over to CONNECTING POINT CHURCH where our “coaches” will “train” “runners” to “cross the finish line” with “strength, agility and stamina” during THE INCREDIBLE RACE.

Every night, 6:00-8:30pm, July 22-26, “contestants” entering K-6 grade will “compete” through clues and challenges to experience God’s love for everyone and learn that the Bible matters today! “Pit stops” through music, lessons, games, crafts, and snacks, too. No “false starts” here…help them set their “personal best” in The Incredible Race of life! Everything is FREE… including summer evenings for you, parents! Register at www.connectingpoint.church

Vacation bible school at Hope Lutheran – Who is my Neighbor?

July 29 – Aug 2 from 8:30am – 1:00pm

Believing that service to one’s neighbor should be a priority for every person of faith, the theme of this summer’s VBS at Hope will help children to understand that we may serve and benefit others in everything we do! The parable of the Good Samaritan will set the theme and help us determine who our “neighbor” really is! We’ll visit neighbors in six parts of the globe over our five days together. There will be singing, crafts, games, a simulation station where children will have hands-on experiences, skits, storytime, and snacks! Hope Lutheran is located at the corner of Blooming Grove Drive and Winter St in Defreestville. Call Marilyn at 518-326-5276 and leave your name and email for a registration form.
