School is almost out for the summer and you know what that means?! VBS is just around the corner? We are so excited to “Arise and Shine” on Adventure Island as we learn and grow with our preschoolers and K-5 kids this year. We have a great team but we still have available spots for Guides (adults who can shepherd kids to each rotation station), people to help with decoration prep (June 1-3) and decoration set up on June 5th. If you are interested or your youth need credit hours we would love to have you! Contact Carla Parker ( or Melissa Willis ( with your availability.

We are also planning for the summer for Preschool Worship Care and Sunday School, and Children’s Sunday School and Children’s Worship. Did you know that it takes 32 volunteers in preschool and 40 volunteers in K-5th grades each month (serving 1 Sunday a month) to make a Sunday go smoothly and for children to be connected with Jesus and their church family. This year we have had very committed team and we would love for you to join us. There is so much joy in every classroom and we want to share it with you. We need our adult members to re-engage and serve with our children’s ministry. We have room to grow and welcome but we need the teachers in the classrooms. There are open positions in Preschool Worship Care, Preschool Sunday School, Children’s Worship, and Children’s Sunday School. If you would like to try it out for the summer before committing to the school year that’s great. If you’re willing to go ahead and commit for the entire year that’s a blessing! I would love to take you out for coffee, breakfast, or lunch and talk more about the opportunities we have to serve God and His children.

With Joy,
