Vacation Bible School is set for July 22-26 from 6:00-8:15 p.m. We are looking forward to another great VBS this year!  Registration forms are available in the hallway, please take one and invite a friend or neighbor. 

 

 

 

Ages for this year are Pre-school thru 4th grade. 

 

 

 

We still need a few volunteers to help and someone to lead games!  Please see Caitlyn Brinkman, or you can email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions or to sign up. 

 

Food 4 Kids program at First Light Church.  During the school year this program packs backpacks for low income families for the weekends when the kids aren't at school to receive free or reduced lunch.  The summer is especially difficult for these families having enough to eat.  Each week a backpack is packed for the children and given out.  Items can be placed in the tub marked Food 4 Kids in the hallway.  If you know of someone who could benefit from this program or if you have any questions please see Alice Fae or Caitlyn. 

 

 

 

VBS is also holding a drive for Food 4 Kids during our VBS week, July 22-26, so we will keep the bin out for donations until after VBS.
