The program, titled “Meth: Stories of Horror and Hope,” features a filmed interview with Cindy Gray, a woman who lost a son due to methamphetamine use. “The minute my son tried it, that was the end,” Gray says. “He eventually had to go to using a needle to get that next high.” This Lifetree program also features a filmed interview with a young man who became addicted to meth but found hope and escaped his addiction.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: VBS will be July 18-21 from 6pm-8:15pm. This year we are offering VBS for preschool thru adults. There will be 4 nights of Christian movies for 3 age groups – preschool thru 2nd grade, 3rd thru 8th grade and high school thru adults. Movies will include – Veggie tales, Luther, Facing the Giants, Evan Almighty and others. There will be “movie type” snacks and drinks. We will need a few volunteers to help with each school age group and facilitators for the high school/adult movies; and to make and check on the snacks for each group, and activities for the preschool thru 8th grade classes. We hope everyone will be excited about our VBS this summer and plan to attend. If you are available to help contact Cheryl Heinold.
