VBS is Coming Soon!

April 23, 2018

This summer’s Vacation Bible School is Rolling River Rampage.  It invites Rafters (the children) of all ages on a white water rafting adventure to experience the ride of a lifetime with God!  Along the river, Rafters discover that life with God is an adventure full of wonder and surprise, and that they can trust God to be with them through anything!

At Rolling River Rampage, Rafters will:

Experience the ride of a lifetime with God

Encounter exciting Bible Stories from the life of Jesus

Explore God’s promises for their lives

Discover ways to serve God and others

Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon are the dates and times for this summer’s VBS.  Mark your calendars.  This is not only a wonderful opportunity for the children in Hemphill, but also for your grandchildren. Call your children and share the dates; plan for your grandkids to visit you and share in VBS.  This includes grands that participate in VBS as well as the older ones to volunteer as youth helpers.  Let the VBS Directors, Janette and George Young know so volunteers can be positioned in the best place.  Classes are for children who are three by June 1st (and fully potty-trained)  through kids going into the 6th grade.

VBS also offers an opportunity for adults to grow as servant-leaders. There are many ways you can participate and help:

 

1) Pray.  Pray now that volunteers continue to come forward.  Pray for children to come.  Pray that we fulfill the opportunity to minister to the children.

2) Volunteer. Volunteer to help with creating decorations, providing supplies, preparing materials, providing snacks/ snack ingredients, and of course, working with the children as a teacher, or teacher’s helper.  There are many other ways not listed that you can volunteer.

3) Contribute.  Contribute with your prayers, your gifts, and your service.

Our weeklong Bible Verse for Rolling River Rampage is Isaiah 43:2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.”    VBS is an invaluable opportunity to reach beyond the walls of FUMC into the heart of the community.  Won’t you help us?  Commit and pray for a successful year at VBS this summer.
