June 25th through June 29th, 1pm to 3:30pm: VBC, “Acts of Love” and “ALL PARISH PICNIC” on Friday evening. This week we are going to explore whom Jesus loved, and what it means to show God's love to each other. There will be a lot of outreach projects, a Worshipful Walk in Bird Park, led by Noah Evans, a super-fun “Water Wednesday”-- and LOTS OF FUN with friends!-- this week.
NOTE: Friday will be a little different than the other 4 days. Instead of having parents pick up their children as usual on Friday at 3:30pm, the adults who are helping with VBC will walk all of the VBC kids down to Mt. Lebanon Park. We would like to invite the ENTIRE parish to join us there from 4pm to 7pm, at the pavilion closest to the lower playground for an ALL PARISH cookout. We hope to cook hot dogs, and we invite everyone to bring a dish to share with the whole group. The kids will sing the songs they learned during the week as well. It should be a wonderful fellowship time for all of us as we celebrate Acts of Love!
