Vacation Bible School 2017 - Submerged!  
This year's VBS is taking us deep into God's word with SUBMERGED!  We will be going under the sea doing lots of things, having lots of fun with Louis and Skeeter, chasing after a captain looking for deep sea treasure.  We will be starting our day with Worship Rally at the Helm, then going to Bible Study at the Observation Station.   After that, we will be going to Deep Sea Crafts, Deep Sea Missions, Deep Sea Snacks, and ending our day with the Worship Rally at the Stern.  On Saturday, we will add Submarine Drill for Sunday's Family Day, and have Submarine Recreation.  We will even have submarine sandwiches for lunch!  So bring your children out to VBS, and if you want to participate as a teacher, helper, or help in another way, contact Bruce Meadows at 304-575-0475 or Anita Henry, VBS director, at
304-207-1599 OR 304-255-4021.  

VBS Meeting: There will be a meeting for all VBS teachers and helpers on Monday, June 12, at 6:30 pm in Fellowship Hall.  We will go over all the important information about material about SUBMERGED! our VBS for this year, hand out each teacher’s material, and answer any questions you may have about the program.  If you are interested in helping or becoming a teachers for this year’s VBS, please contact the church office at 304-255-4021 or Bruce Meadows at 304-575-0475.
We need help with one of our crafts for VBS.  All you need to do is save the lids off of 32 oz Gatorade, PowerAde and the large containers of cranberry juice, Hawaiian Punch, Hi-C and similar types of juice bottles.  Then at the end of June, bring them to church with you so we can prepare them for VBS.  Our VBS program, SUBMERGED, begins on July 12, so if you can bring them to us by June 21, we would really appreciate it. We will be using them to create a compass for each child, like the captain in our story.  Thank you for helping us with our craft.
