The following is a list of Save- The- Dates for Youth Fellowship
and their families. Mark your calendars.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!!
Summer Sunday School
Summer Sunday School continues taking a fun and light approach to learning more about our Faith Traits and Values with a VeggieTale curriculum. We will be having a single, all-age class in the air-conditioned Library beginning Sunday June 16th. Summer Sunday School will be offered every Sunday through the summer, except for Family Sundays. On Family Sundays (the first Sunday of the month), children will continue to stay with their families in service to enjoy worshiping together as a family.
Dress a Girl
Dress a Girl will continue through the summer and youth age 10 and up are invited to learn the art of machine sewing and help support other girls around the world. Watch the Branchline and Bulletins for dates and times.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is being held August 4th – 8th. This year’s theme is a Workshop of Wonders. Through WOW VBS, it is our hope that children will realize that they are capable of great things when they use their hearts, minds, and imaginations to follow the example of God, the one who works wonders! Please contact Jeanne Westcott for more details and to register or for information on volunteer opportunities.
Have a safe and happy summer!!!!
Our Youth Fellowship program continues to grow and thrive, offering our youth various opportunities to engage in fun, friendly and faith building experiences. Both YF groups have also received a special invitation to enjoy a concert at St Cecilia’s featuring Joseph Reed and Synergy, from 7-8:30pm on Feb 28th . For more details on these and other YF activities in February, please see the Branchline, the attached calendar, or contact Jeanne Westcott.
Please consider yourself personally invited to make a difference in a child’s life by sharing your time and talents in support of the youth of Wilbraham United Church. The Education Commission is always looking for adult volunteers to support our many regular and special event offerings. Some opportunities include: Sunday School teachers and substitutes, Youth Advisors, Retreat and 30-Hour famine chaperones, snack makers, planning committees, Vacation Bible School support, and much more. We can utilize any skills and time commitments available. Please feel free to contact Carrie Kagan or Jeanne Westcott to express your interest and/or learn more.
As always if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to any member of the Education Commission. Feedback is a gift, and your Education Commission members love presents!!!
Faithfully, your Education Commission
