Thinking of summer days…Mark your calendars

Mission Project

Every year we have encouraged our children to bring donations in for our projects, in an effort to teach them how to “give back” to their communities. We have company this year as we have our VBS. We have the honor of having work teams from all over coming to SUMC to help rebuild homes through the NC Conference UMC Disaster Response. The response teams need our help by supplying some of the following supplies that are used daily.

PLEASE consider bringing one or several of the following items: Drop Off locations at entrance of ALL 3 buildings. So even if you don’t attend the week of VBS, you can still be a part of VBS!

  • Paint Trays (disposable or regular)
  • Painters Tape (Blue Hawk brand preferred)
  • Plastic drop cloths
  • Paint Pail Liners
  • Chip Brushes (All sizes, 2-4”)
  • Sandpaper sheets or blocks for drywall
  • Dust Masks (N95)
  • Latex free Nitrile Gloves (size large)

Vacation Bible School still needs HELPERS! 

  • “Star” Grade Guides for 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 6th graders. You get to experience it all with the kids. No prep required.)
  • Set up on Sunday, July 14 from noon to 3 pm.
  • Clean up on Friday, July 19 from 8 AM to noon. 
Come explore where God’s Power can take us at VBS to Mars and Beyond.

Vacation Bible School 2018 - July 16-19 - 5:30-8:00 p.m.

With an average of 148 rafters + 70 amazing volunteers and a total of 195 registered children/youth, we experienced the ride of a lifetime with God at VBS Rolling River Rampage!  Through the music, crafts, missions, science, recreation, and the Bible stories brought to life, the children found adventure, acceptance, joy, rest, and peace that comes from Jesus. The children shared ripples of kindness by bringing items to make UMCOR cleaning kits and made “kindness rocks” to spread JOY in our community. 

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.”  Isaiah 43:2

A special “thank you” to Harold Fulp for leading the Adult VBS Bible study.  They had an average of 20 each night attend to study the book of Esther.

 A BIG “THANK YOU” to Sound Ace Hardware for donating the buckets for the UMCOR cleaning kits and to Paxon Holz for the tokens from Golphin’ Dolphin’ and MacDaddy’s to encourage them to bring a friend.  We also need to thank Jersey Mike’s for donating subs for Wednesday night’s dinner.  We have an AWESOME supportive community!
