Volunteers Needed for VBS

Registration is open for Vacation Bible School, June 26-30, 2017. We are still looking for volunteers: two class leaders are needed, as well as miscellaneous helpers.  Registration and volunteer forms are available on the bulletin board in Fields Hall—please drop them in Renee Feldman’s mailbox in the Parish Center offices. We are also looking for a sponsor for a Thrivent Action Team Project grant for VBS. If you can sponsor one, please contact Laura Hamilton at [email protected] or in the office

 

Our VBS Mission Projects this year will be “Capes for Kids” and “Operation Lunch Bucket”. We will be requesting donations of shelf stabile “lunchbox” items beginning in June. The project will benefit LVCAP’s Interfaith Food Pantry. More information on this (and all things VBS) will be available in the coming weeks in “Happenings” emails and the June LVL.

ANNIVERSARY OF THE GIFT OF LIFE FOR ALLIE HUFF

The Huff family would like to acknowledge their thanks to God for the gift of a new heart for Allie eight years ago, and for the medical advances that allowed for her operation to be successful.  At the same time, they are praying for peace for the family for whom this is not a joyous anniversary, but a sad one as they remember the loss of a family member whose heart was donated for Allie.
