Vacation Bible School (VBS) returns this year August 8th through 12th from 9:30—11:30 a.m. VBS is a fun-filled program offered for children between the ages of 5—12. It is a way for us to connect with the children and families in our community, bringing in children who don’t normally attend church and to teaching them the gospel, and helping us to fulfill the Great Commission. If you feel called to assist in this outreach ministry, there will be a meeting announced in the near future. Please speak to Heather or Dawn Masson, or Rev. Rob for more info.
Rev. Rob alongside Krista Turnbull with PALS started an afterschool floor hockey club from the gymnasium of the Carleton Kirk in the spring of 2016. The first group went through late winter/ early spring and had a great time! The second group of floor hockey participants finish their final game Thursday, June 9, 2016. This will wrap up the afterschool program for this term but it was such a success we pray it will resume in the new school year. If you feel called to help, you could do so by making refreshments, passing out treats, supervision or even playing a round or two.
We would like to invite you to 2 events happening in a couple of weeks. The first one is on Saturday, Dec 6th from 2:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. We are going to be having fun playing games, making a craft of two, and dressing up in the church hall. Why? Our plan is to create a video of the Christmas Story that we can share with our congregation on Sunday, December 21st at our 10:30 service. You and any one you would like to bring are invited to come, hear the Christmas Story in words, fun music, and of course, pictures and videos starring you!
Then on Sunday, December 7th, you are invited to meet us at the church between 2 and 2:15 to go to a Sea Dogs game at Harbour Station. We will be looking for some help with drives but should be able to take everyone over to the game and return them back to the church (or even home) afterwards. No money is needed – we have the tickets and a few refreshments for everyone. All we need is you!
If you have any questions, please ask anyone of our Sunday School Teachers or David. We hope to see you at the church. If going to the hockey game, please get a permission slip from the office and have it completed by a legal guardian and bring it with you on game day.
This year’s theme was Noah's Ark.
VBS is a great way for kids to have fun this summer in the lower west community of Saint John. Our yearly VBS is free of charge, and is open to children between the ages of 5 and 12. Your kids will have a blast learning the story of Noah and his Arc, playing games, doing crafts and having fun snacks.
