The Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry will be recruiting volunteers for the Fall/Winter half during the month of July.  If you would be interested in helping in the back with the kids, please come to the table and sign up.  It is a great privilege to share Christ with our kids and 
they love the attention they get from the VGF adult and teen helpers!  This is a great opportunity to make an impact on these little lives and we would love to have you as a part of our team.  Volunteering is easy and there is not much time needed through the 
week to prepare for your class because we do it for you!  See you in July!

Also, during the month of July we’re asking everyone to bring in socks for the Outreach Center. They would need to fit Kindergarten-5th graders and we would like them to be ankle socks- preferably dark colors.  Any offering that you send in with your children during the month of July will be going toward this effort.  We will have tubs in the Children’s Ministry hallway to put the socks in and there will also be a tub in the lobby by the recruiting table.  If you don’t want to buy socks but would like to donate money we have someone that is willing to make the purchases.

Also, please make note:

We will not be having our baptism in August per the usual date, but will wait until we are into our new building and celebrate at that time.
