Vacation Bible School

BECAUSE OF COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, TRADITIONAL VBS WILL NOT BE HELD THIS YEAR.  WATCH THE WEBSITE FOR OTHER OPPORTUNITIES.

Every July we hold a one-week Vacation Bible School for children through grade 6. Every year we have a different theme. We had over 45 attendees during the summers. The children rotated through Interactive Bible Study, Crafts, Recreation, and Science Discovery activities. All- hands meetings at the start and end of every day included a short skit and group singing. The last day of VBS; parents, guardians and friends are all invited for a short program and light refreshments.


Peach Festival AutoShow

Our Annual Peach Festival is held in August. We serve peach pies, peach shortcake, and other picnic foods in outdoor tents. Activities include entertainment,face painting, children's games, and a bake sale. In conjunction with the festival, we sponsor the Memorial Auto Show, this year hosting over 30 classic automobiles. The afternoon continues to be a time of fun and fellowship involving not only our church family but also the surrounding neighborhood.


                                                         Blessing of the Animals

The past few summers we have held a Blessing of the Animals on our church lawn.This custom is conducted in remembrance of Saint Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures. Every year we have a wonderful turn out of pet owners and their "fur babies". A short service is held and then your pet is blessed if you wish. We also collect food, supplies and monetary donations each year for a different animal rescue. It is always a wonderful morning full of smiles, happy pets and blessings!
