Maker Fun Factory – Created by God, built for a purpose
Send your kids on for some Faith Building Fun!
Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they’re lovingly crafted by God. Maker Fun Factory VBS is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch and even taste! Creative crafts, team-building games, co Bible songs, and tasty treats are a few of the activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings!
We want all the kids to participate and to bring their friends. We will need lots of adult help! Signup sheets for adult crew leaders, MS and HS crew helpers, and for participants ages 3 years old (potty trained) through 5th grade (fall 2017) are in the bins outside Claire Bissell’s office. Mark your calendars and sign up today!
Call for Catechists: if you are interested in helping with our religious education program in the fall as a catechist or a helper, contact Claire Bissell for more information. There are many ways you can help in accord with your ability and experience. Training and support are provided. It’s a great way to model your faith for your child!
Our parish Catechist back to school retreat will be held on Saturday, August 5 from 10 am to 2 pm in the Burleigh Center. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to let me know if you can attend as we pray for the children of our parish, welcome new catechists, and get ourselves organized for the year and prepare to grow in our own spiritual journey.
