Register now! Vacation Bible School will be held August 20-24. This year’s theme will be “Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus.” Kids will venture onto an uncharted island where they learn that Jesus carries them through life’s storms! Kids ages 3 (potty trained) to 5th Grade may register; tweens & teens over 11 are welcome to come help! There is no registration fee; free-will offerings are gratefully accepted. Everyone is welcome!! Registration forms are available in the narthex.

To help celebrate Back to School time -- and because Hands of Hope really needs them -- our August “Food of the Month” is HEALTHY SNACKS FOR KIDS. (Emphasis on HEALTHY!) So let’s think outside the Cheez-It box, take a stroll down the organic aisle, & bring those yummy healthy snacks with you to church on Sunday -- or you may drop them off during the week. Thank you!

August is DYECH Pledge Month  We have neighbors who need our help! Too many families face the loss of their housing when an unexpected crisis finds them unable to pay their monthly rent. Please consider helping our neighbors who find themselves in dire circumstances by making a one-time pledge/donation of $20 or more. Just mail your check to DYECH 2018 Pledge Drive, PO Box 507, Yarmouth Port MA 02675 (please be sure your address is on the check). Thank you!
