VBS 2010 — Galactic Blast

Vacation Bible School 2010 is scheduled for July 12-16, 9 am to noon.  Once again this year, we will offer VBS for kids entering grades K-6 in fall 2010.  We will also have a nursery for children of VBS volunteers and for children who are a part of Coffeyville First UMC.  At Galactic Blast VBS, cadets will gather together for opening and closing assemblies and then will go by classes to the various centers:  Bible story, crafts, discovery time, music, recreation, and snacks.  This year, we will be continuing our mission project we began earlier this year, by bringing offerings for the “Nothing But Nets” campaign to provide insecticide treated mosquito nets to help prevent the spread of Malaria.

How can you help?  If you would like to volunteer to help, there are several opportunities.  Prior to VBS, there  is the opportunity to help create space-themed decorations, or to let us borrow space themed decorations that you already have.  There are also opportunities during the week of VBS to help out as a volunteer in various areas.  If you are not able to volunteer your time, but you would like to go beyond your regular giving and contribute financially with a designated offering, you are always welcome to do that.  We will again be putting signs for VBS in yards to advertise the event.  If you would be willing to have a sign in your yard let us know.  Finally, we request your prayers for VBS.  We hope and pray that VBS will be a wonderful week where the volunteers and the kids can experience God’s love and learn ways to follow Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

If you would like to volunteer to help with VBS, please contact Pastor Jenny (jenny@revcollins.com) or the church office.  Please spread the word about VBS to the children you know.
