Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth
This summer we will be traveling to Athens at Carlisle Avenue Baptist Church to be a part of Paul’s dangerous journey to share the truth. You are invited to come and be a part of this exciting experience. Athens VBS is scheduled for August 11-15 from 6-8 pm. It is for children (3 years old – potty trained) through adults. We will have a nursery available for our VBS workers. Would you like to serve as a VBS volunteer? We can use your help! Please let Claire know if you can serve.
There is still time to register for Vacation Bible School. To register, please visit our church website at www.cabc.org and download a VBS registration form and family letter. Fill out the form with a pen and drop it off in Claire’s mailbox.
I would like to give a word of thanks to those of you who helped distribute flyers around our church neighborhood on July 31 and August 1. Thank you for spreading the word about our VBS program to our community. What a great way to spread the love of Christ! Our VBS Decorating Team will meet at the church on Saturday, August 10 at 3 pm to decorate the gym. I would like to remind all family group leaders that you will need to decorate your own classrooms. The prayer room will be set up with a few leftover items that you can use to decorate your classrooms.
This year we are adding an additional component to our VBS Program, a fun evening at the Sandston Pool. VBS participants are invited to a pool party on Friday, August 16 from 6-8 pm. Families will need to bring $4.00 to go swimming. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Other events happening this month are Picnic at the Park at Osborne Landing at 6 pm on Wednesday, August 21. Out- door Movie Night will be on Friday, August 23 at 8:30 pm. We will watch Charlotte’s Webb. It is a great child friendly movie. Refreshments including lemonade and pop-corn will be served. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the show! Please make plans to attend these events!
