Set up for VBS, this Sunday June 6th:
We will be transforming the church into our island theme this Sunday, June 6th at 5 PM. Sunday’s work day will include dinner and a chance for fellowship as we work together to decorate the church. We would like to invite any and all adults to come help us, for whatever period of time they can. Some ideas of what all we will be doing are: setting up rotation stations, building decor, setting up team tables, setting the stage/large group area, and setting up the foyer for new registrants and check-in. We ask for adults only, so the kids can be surprised on Monday night and because there will be a lot of building and putting things together.

Please Pray for Vacation Bible School!
Please be in prayer for our Vacation Bible School volunteers and all the children who will be a part of this year’s Bible School. We will commission our VBS Volunteers this Sunday during both worship services. We will also have a special opportunity for a prayer walk on Monday, June 7th, from 9-11am at New Life. Everyone is invited to participate. Please contact Joyce Brown if you would like more information.

Ladies Summer Biking:
This summer our Women’s Ministry will offer Bike Outings on Monday evenings at 6:30 pm. Each week the ride will start at a different location. All women are invited to participate and bring a friend! The first bike ride will be Monday June 7th at 6:30 pm on the Pumpkinvine Trail (from Shipshewana to Middlebury). If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Kay Simmons or Kim Taylor.

Moms-n-More Summer Outings:
Moms-n-More will be having play dates in the park this summer for moms and their kids! The first event will be Thursday, June 17th at Wolfe Park in Shipshewana. Meet at the park at 10:00 am.
