Hey Kids – Check out what’s going on at the church!
Sunday School Registration:  (Register Now)
It’s time to register your child for class.  This helps us in setting up the classrooms and the ordering of supplies.  Click here to print a registration form.  Or you can pick up a registration form in the narthex.  Please return the completed registration form to the church office as soon as possible. 
Also, notice the area at the bottom of the Registration form where YOU can also sign up to help with a classroom.  It’s a great way to show your child the importance of learning about Jesus.  Please consider teaching or assisting with a class this year.  Thank you!
Sunday School Volunteers Needed:  (volunteer now)
Sunday school wouldn’t be a success without our volunteers!  As the school year is quickly approaching, we are looking for people to teach, team-teach, assist in a classroom, help with memory work, take attendance, and looking to the future…  assist with the Christmas programs.  Let Bobbi Hestdalen, Pastor Brian or the office know if you would be willing to help our Sunday school program in any way.
Bibles for Third Graders:  (Sept 8)
The scriptures implore us to keep the Word of the Lord in front of us as a constant reminder of how much God does for us, especially salvation through Jesus Christ. God’s word is also a means of grace, by which God works faith in us.  Because God’s word is such a special gift, all children entering third grade will receive a Bible during the 8:15 or 10:45 am service on Rally Sunday, September 8.  Please join us for this special celebration!
Sunday School:  (Starts Sept 8)
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 memory work, taking 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!
Greetings from Grace Lutheran School:  (still time to register for this fall)
We are looking forward to sharing Jesus with our students through the school year theme of “Beautiful Feet on Every Street”.  This theme is based on Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news.”  As always, feel free to stop in and visit your school any time.  We enjoy connecting with family and supporters.
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.
LCMS Summer Camps:
There are brochures in the narthex for those who would like to attend church camp.  This year’s theme at Shepherd’s Hill at the Crossroads is “A Great Cloud”.  Some of the camps offered are horse camps, art camp, guitar camp and even an adult camp.  Their website is www.shretreat.org.
 
This year’s theme at Lutheran Island Camp and Christ Serve Ranch is “Forgiven”.  There are great programs for all ages.  Their website is www.islandcamp.org.
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!
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.
