vbs-2014Our thanks again to the Epworth family for your support and assistance with this year’s VBS (Vacation Bible School), Avalanche Ranch. It was a busy, fun-filled week, where kids learned that God is real, that He’s always with us, that He’s strong, He’s awesome, and He’s in charge. To all those who donated to, prayed for, planned for, set up, and cleaned up; to those who assisted with decorating, registration, or worked in the kitchen; to those who helped with music, assemblies, preschool classes, station leaders, youth helpers, picture-taking, and whatever else needed to happen…THANKS!! Close to 80 kiddos, 20 youth helpers, and 40 adults joined us in this exciting week, which was truly enjoyed by all. How blessed we are to have such an amazing, supportive church, helping touch so many lives!

As summer comes to a close and fall schedules resume, be sure to look for the start of Sunday School classes for children and youth, which will be on September 14, 2014. As it was last year, classes will be held from 9:45-10:45 every Sunday. On the 14th, all classes will meet on the third floor with a Sunday School Assembly. After that, students will go to separate classes, depending on their ages and grades. We can’t wait to see you, and invite you to bring your friends to join us!

Epworth’s Education Committee is always looking for new members for our committee, and to assist with our various activities. If you like kids, and would be willing to share some of your time, we could sure use you! Feel free to call the church office (257-6849), Carmen Field (756-7667), or Willi Leatzow (854-2800/ 253-2801) if you have any questions.vbs2
