Vacation Bible School @ Christ Church Parish Hall
Jul 16 @ 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM

We will be having information meetings on June 10 and 24 after the 10:30 a.m. service for anyone who is interested in helping with Vacation Bible School or who has a youth who would like to volunteer. This year’s program requires many volunteers! I will be having additional meetings in July, leading up to VBS if you cannot attend either of these meetings. I expect them to not last more than 30 minutes.

Vacation Bible School is July 16-19, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.

This year we are doing a Harry-Potter themed VBS. We are blessed to have a Parish Hall that can easily, I think, be transformed into the Great Hall at Hogwarts. But we need the professors and Hagrid, and other “characters” to help fulfill the roles to make VBS more special for the children.

I think high school students, college students, and adults could fill these roles. (Junior high students could, if they enjoy acting, play Hermione, Harry, and Ron.)

Harry (every night)
Hermione (every night)
Ron (every night)
Professor Dumbledore (Tues, Thurs)
Hagrid (Mon, Wed, Thurs)
Mr. and Mrs. Dursley (Mon)
Voldemort (Thurs)
The Sorting Hat Voice (Tues)
Madame Hooch (Tues, Wed)
Professor Snape (Wed)

Additionally, I will need help with the craft stations (4 needed each night, ideally).

Please let me know if you or your youth would be willing to help us put on a wonderful Vacation Bible School this year. If there is a particular role you would like to play, let me know. There are no lines to memorize—just the outline of a premise that you are presenting to the children to set up the theme and activities.

Thanks so much!!! I appreciate all of you very much and I know how busy you are! So your willingness to add this to your schedule means a lot to me and I know it means a lot to the children, too!

p.s. If you have children or grandchildren who will be attending VBS, please let me know.

PODCASTS

Christ Church now has podcasts available for download from the Itunes Store and Google Play!

But what is a podcast you might ask? A podcast is basically a pre-recorded radio program that can be downloaded and played at any time. In our case, we have uploaded the weekly Sunday sermons in a podcast format, so anyone can now download and listen to them. Another great thing about podcasts is the ability to subscribe to them. This means that every time a new podcast is available, you will receive a notification and can even have it automatically downloaded to your phone.

Our podcast is called “Christ Episcopal Church Podcast, Springfield, MO" and can be found on Itunes, or Google Play under the podcasts section. You can also google “Christ Episcopal Church Podcast, Springfield, MO” and find us on Player FM, and Listen Notes.

If you are interested in more information about podcasts or have questions, speak with Franz in the front office and he will assist you.
