Vacation Bible School

PARENTS: Mark these dates… Sunday – Wednesday evenings

July 28-31

We are making plans for our summer VBS program! We want this to be a great experience for our children. VBS is a fantastic outreach for our church and can be a special opportunity to share God’s love with children who may not yet know Him. We hope to include everyone in our church in this experience.

We are looking for volunteers to lead Storytelling & Music stations and serve as Crew Leaders. Please talk to Cindi Chollett if you want to get involved.

Volunteering may not be your thing – that’s OK. Our “Adopt a Craft or Givea-way” effort is going great, but there are still a few more items on our wish list. Check out the Sign-Up sheets at the VBS table in the Narthex. All you need to do is choose a craft or a give-a-way item to adopt, sign up and drop off a check off to cover the expense of those items.

Thanks for helping us share the word of God with the kids!

Registration Forms will be available soon.


Join the Grace Reads 2019 Reading Challenge!

The Path of Grace Media Center is sponsoring a "Grace Reads" challenge for 2019. We are challenging each child, youth and adult to read at least one book from our newly refurbished media center. Patrons will still use our regular sign-out clip board to check out materials, then once you have completed reading a book, register your name, book title and your rating for the book on the Grace Reads clipboard. We'll have special Grace Reads pins for those who have stepped up to the challenge. For questions ask one of our Media Center committee members, Deb Clark, Debra Watson or Cheryl Watson



October 18-27, 2019

Pastor Tom and Jill would like to invite everyone in our church family to join them on a cruise to Greece to explore the travels of the Apostle Paul. Also traveling on this trip will be our own Bishop Bruce Ough and his wife Char. The trip is October 18-27, 2019 and offers an additional extension tour of Athens and Corinth (October 27-28). The trip is on Azamara Club Cruises and organized by Educational Opportunities. On the trip, we will visit Greece, Crete and Turkey. We will explore several sites connected to the ministry of Paul and visit the cave where tradition says John wrote the Book of Revelation. Along the way, our cruise will also make port in a couple of beautiful seaside Greek communities.

Brochures can be found at the Welcome Center desk or see Pastor Tom. You can also download a brochure here.
