Seeking Teachers for Four Sundays this Summer: Sign Up Today to Teach Summer Sunday School


Sunday, May 21, marked the final day of our school year Sunday School program, and we have now switched to weekly volunteers throughout the summer. Host families will provide a snack and teach a lesson to a mixed-age group of children in the Parish Hall. You can sign up to teach one class or a few classes on the following dates:
Sunday, June 18, 
Sunday, July 30, 
Sunday, August 6, and 
Sunday, September 3. 
Click here to go to the schedule to sign up. 








June 19 through 23
We continue to seek volunteers to fill the following open roles for VBS (June 19 through 23) this summer:
Nursery Volunteers
We are planning to have the nursery available to watch the children of volunteers who are too young to attend the camp (3 and under). We are still looking for a couple of volunteers (adult OR youth) from the Parish to hang out with the littlest ones (under 3) from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day. Youth will receive service hour credits for their time.


Aftercare Volunteers
Aftercare will be available from noon to 5:00 p.m. each day for the week of VBS and we already have around 20 children signed up. This time will include seated lunch (kids bring their own), quiet time, outdoor play in the playground (requiring supervision), some crafts and theatre games, and perhaps a movie or two. We are hoping to staff this portion of the day with people who did not work in the morning so that no one gets burnt out from working both all week long!


Amazon Registry
Last but not least, if you want to help out but can’t donate your time, there are just a few remaining items that can be purchased from our Amazon Registry!

Youth Mission Camp 2017
Do you love to help others?  Do you love summer camp?  Why not do both at the same time?!  All youth (rising 6 graders through rising 12 graders) are encouraged to sign up for Mission Camp this summer at DaySpring, from July 23 through 28.  We will join youth from across the diocese for a week of serving God and others, as well as taking advantage of all the things summer camp has to offer, including swimming, canoeing, the ropes course, and more!  As if that isn’t enough to entice you, Fr. Chase will be serving as one of the camp chaplains!  Be sure to visit to register for Mission Camp or contact Fr. Chase for more information.
