The area Churches co-operative summer Bible School July 13th - 17th 9 am- 12:00 pm, hosted this year at St Andrew's Episcopal Church. The theme is "Splashing into Summer," with water stories from the Bible such as Noah, Jonah, walking on the water and more. It should be really fun. For kids aged 3 years old to 5th graders. Some of the needs are volunteers as teachers in the classrooms, and for recreation, science stations, arts and crafts, and in the kitchen too. We also need help running a video station. If you play an instrument and/or like to help lead singing, we could use you! If you are a thespian you just might be the one we could use in a play. As the time gets closer, look for a list of things we need to bring for snacks, and anything that needs to be collected for arts and crafts. So remember, block out the dates for July 13th - 17th! For more information contact Pam Fosnes at 452-4331.
Kindergarden to 5th Graders
Meet in the Bethany Room downstairs. We use the multi-age We Believe curriculum, following the seasons of the church year. We read the Bible, then retell and explore the meaning of each passage for us in a variety of ways. A goal is to use many of the multiple intelligences so we can each learn by working in our comfort zones, and by stretching ourselves to use different ways of processing information.
Wee Believe Pre-school Classes
For 3-5 year olds meet in the room next to the nursery to learn many stories in the Bible and about some of God's leaders.
A little over a year ago, a small group started meeting at Carrie and Dan Cobb's house. This group involves mostly parents of kids age 14 or younger, but is open to others as well, as long as they don't mind the noise of kids in the background while the group meets! Last year, we thoroughly enjoyed studying the book "One Thousand Gifts," by Ann Voskamp, and we are currently reading "What's so Amazing about Grace," by Phillip Yancey. Both books have been full of inspiration and wisdom and great launching pads for discussions. Our group always shares a meal as well and that has become an important part of our time together. We are learning about Christian community together, as well as stretching our faith and opening our minds. Feel free to call Carrie or Dan at 452-0476 with any questions about the group. We meet about once a month, usually in the late afternoon.
