Other Opportunities

Camp Wyoming – Presbyterian Church Camp near Wyoming, Iowa
Camp Wyoming offers a variety of summer camp experiences for children and youth, Grade 1 through 12. Check out the camps they have to offer here. Our congregation feels so strongly about the benefit of church camp on growing faith, we will pay the entire cost of camp!

Vacation Bible School – each Summer.

Vacation Bible School will be June 17-21, 2019 from 9:00-noon at the church.  This year we are exploring Living Waters for The World.

We all need water to live and grow and thrive. But clean, safe water is not easily available everywhere. Each day, we will learn about how children in different parts of the world live, and especially how they get water. We’ll also learn a Bible story about water, enjoy tasty snacks,and try our hands at crafts and some water “magic!” For four year olds on up.  All are welcome, but space is limited to 30 kids!
