Thank you for VBS Attendees and Helpers

Hello everyone,

          On behalf of the Children’s ministry I wanted to express a great big thank you to all who helped make this year’s VBS a great success. It takes many hands to put this event into motion and I appreciate all who helped in one way or another. We always have fun each year reaching out to our church and community children and teaching them about Jesus. This year the kids got to learn about Jesus’s teaching with water in Take the Plunge. If you get a chance, ask one of our children what they liked best about the week. They may say snacks, games, a Bible story, one of the water experiments, or even the skits.

This has now been my 10th year of directing the VBS program. It has been a great honor and a privilege to keep this program going. I am humbled to work with so many great people who are willing to give of their spare time to help each night. Thank you again for all of your help. Until next year!

Kensill Fund for Hope Auction Oct 7

posted Jul 6, 2017, 10:48 AM by Lois Kerchner

Mark your calendars now for Saturday, October 7, 2017 for the Kensill Fund for Hope Auction starting at noon. It is a great time of fun and fellowship, but, most importantly, it is the annual event our church holds to contribute to the Kensill Fund for Hope, the fund used to provide scholarships for students who participate in the ministries of the Mid-Town Parish United Methodist Church in North Philadelphia.

Joel Fisher will again have his delicious chicken on sale for us that day.

This year we will not have a yard sale, but you may rent a table for that morning to bring, display and sell your own items.  More information on this will be available. 

Donations may be placed in a designated area of the choir room before September 28.  After that they are to be placed at the stage in fellowship hall.

Our thanks in advance for your continued support!

It is time to grab your sunglasses and beach towels and get ready for some splashing fun at our Take the Plunge VBSTake the Plunge is a water park adventure. But more than that, it’s a Bible adventure that you’re going to love. Each day we’ll Plunge into the word and learn how Jesus used the very common element of water to teach some very uncommon lessons. 
As we soak up the Word, we'll Plunge into obedience, worship, courage, faith and service. Ecah day we'll Take the Plunge at Raise the Reef Praise, Oceans of Motions, the Snack Shack, Craft-Away Cove and Bibleland Bay.

 The twisting and turning of the splash-making adventure will take place each day from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM  June 25 to June 29, 2017 -- right here at Leola UMC. So get prepared to get soaked as we Take the Plunge and Make a Splash with Jesus! It will be an adventure you’ll never forget!

Note:  Bible School on Thursday is at 6:30, the usual time.  The Closing Program (for parents, guests) begins at 7:30.  Refreshments follow the program.
