GRACE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
Every summer, the United Women in Faith at Grace United Methodist Church holds a “Summer Coffee” where we gather and have a continental breakfast. This year we decided to invite our United Methodist neighbors. We hope you will come to enjoy fellowship with us, make new friends and consider becoming part of this powerful, fearless force driven by God’s love and united sisterhood. With a focus on women, children, and youth, we act for justice and work to transform communities! Call or text Kathy Carey at 630-699-4070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

3.VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
We are delighted to announce that Bethany will be blasting off this summer to Stellar VBS – a cosmic quest that promises light years of faith-building fun! Dates are Monday, July 24th through Friday, July 28th, 9 am-11:30 am daily. VBS at Bethany is open to all children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. The registration fee is $24 per child. Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. Scholarships are available for families for whom the registration fee presents a hardship.
VBS also offers fun and meaningful opportunities for youth (grade 6 and up) and adults to share their love of God with our youngest charges. We are looking for crew leaders to shepherd small groups of children through the morning’s activities and station leaders and assistants to coordinate games, snacks, and more. Please find the registration and/or volunteer sign up links in the weekly e-blast or visit https://vbspro.events/p/events/276256 . Letting us know sooner, rather than later, will be much appreciated in our planning.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to VBS Director Bonni Pear with any questions.
