CHECK YOUR CALENDAR FOR B.O.B. AND VBS SUMMER PROGRAM – This summer we are going to try something new for VBS. The past 2 summers we have had a B.O.B. (Better Off Believing) summer camp for K-5th graders. This summer we are going to combine the VBS with B.O.B. summer camp. The “VBS/Summer” camp will meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in June and July with VBS from 10-12:30 and camp from 12-2:30. VBS will be for 2y/o thru 5th graders and B.O.B. camp will be for K thru 5th. The VBS morning will include bible studies, crafts, games and lunch. The B.O.B. camp will have lunch, outings and other activities. We will need volunteers to help with VBS and preparing lunch for the kids. We realized it was hard for people to commit for a full week so thought it may be easier to help out two days a month. You can sign up to help all 4 days or for 1 day. For VBS only we will be looking for Bible study, crafts, and game leader/leaders. All materials will be provided. Check your calendar and watch for the sign up sheets.
LENT WILL SOON BE HERE. We will have Lenten services at 7:00 on Wednesday evenings, starting with Ash Wednesday on March 6th. This year we will again participate in a Lenten round robin with other NALC pastors in the area. Our theme will be hymns of Lent, hymns of justification. We would again like to have Lenten suppers, but need someone to host and organize the suppers. If you are interested and willing to organize the suppers, please talk to Pastor Oman. Thanks! And, plan to come to the Lenten services, they are truly a blessing!
EMPTY TOMB is again hosting a mega-workathon as a fundraiser this year. Please contact Pastor Oman for more information, or if you would like to participate.
