Hey Kids – Check out what’s going on at the church!
VBS Kids helped battle Malnutrition in Zambia:  (Summer 2019)
This year the offerings received during VBS week went to help battle malnutrition in Zambia, Africa.  Kids at ROAR! VBS joined a mission effort thru World Vision to provide nutrition packets and health checkups for moms and babies in need in Zambia.  The special ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) packets help bring hungry kids back from the brink of death in mere weeks – making this gift a real life-saver!  
Our VBS kids are happy to announce that $390 was collected and donated to this life-saving support to families in Zambia.

Sunday School:
BSLC offers a Sunday School program for children ages 3 and up during the school year (Sept – May).  Sunday School meets from 9:30-10:30 am on Sunday mornings (conveniently scheduled between our two Worship Services).  If you have a child age 3 and up, sign them up for Sunday School (the form is located under the “Resources / Forms” tab of this website) or you can pick one up in the Narthex at the church.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
 
Sunday School Teachers / Helpers Needed:
If you would like to help our Sunday School program in any way
(ie: teaching, substitute teaching, being that extra set of hands in a classroom, helping with attendance, etc), please contact the church office or stop in the office on Sunday morning to sign up.  We can always use a spare pair of hands!
VBS Kids helped battle hunger in Haiti:  (Summer 2018)
This year the offerings received during VBS week went to help battle hunger in Haiti.  The island of Haiti has been battling years of drought and hurricanes.  As a result, parents struggle to grow enough food for their families.  Operation Kid-to-Kid is partnering with World Vision to provide Haitian families with drought-tolerant seeds – A $10 gift provides seeds that can grow into food that will feed a child for an entire year.  Our VBS kids are happy to announce that $464 was collected and donated to provide seeds for Haiti.
Do you have Pictures from Church Events?
If you have pictures from church events and are willing to share them, please let the office know.  You just never know where we might use them…  Thanks!
