“SHIPWRECKED: Rescued by Jesus” is coming!!!!

     Come and join other Castaways from St Paul UMC this summer for our exciting and thrilling Vacation Bible School!  VBS will be held June 25-29 from 9am till Noon each day for kids age 3 to grade 5. We are still in need of teens and adults to help in the following areas:

·       Elementary Crew Leaders – no teaching involved! Just take your group from one station to another.

·       Youth aged students to assist at stations or be crew leaders.

·       Assistants in Preschool classes (ages ¾)


If you cannot donate your time to help with VBS, please prayerfully consider donating some supplies or making a monetary donation. The VBS donation bulletin boards are now placed in both the FLC and the Narthex. Simply choose some items that you’d be willing to purchase or donate, and then return the items AND THE PINK NOTE to the church office by June 17th. Thank You for helping!!!


There are two VERY IMPORTANT VBS training dates that are being offered for anyone who is helping at VBS in any way. So, if you are a station leader, crew leader, assistant, registration or snack helper, etc, you will want to attend one of these two meetings. You will get an information packet that will explain what VBS is all about and what you will need to do in order to make this the best experience it can be for not only yourself, but the kiddos we will be reaching. Everything will be explained at these meetings---the training will last about one hour. The training will take place in A-2 (Children’s Assembly Room. Training dates:

                 Wednesday, May 23 from 6:45-7:45pm

          Sunday, June 3 from 11:00-12:00pm(right after Sunday School Ends)


PLEASE make it a point to attend one of these meetings—even if you have helped with VBS before. VBS is a vital ministry, and it is important to have everyone on the same page so that we all know what to expect and what is expected from us. Please contact Cindy Bowen at 717-372-8199 if you have any questions.


PLEASE save your plastic gallon milk jugs after you are done with them. We need a bunch of them for one of our games. Please put them in a bag or box and drop off at church office marked as “VBS”. Thank You!
