Help is still needed for our Summer Sunday School Program. At minimum, it’s only a 2-week commitment. Don’t let the kids down. Sign up Today!!   SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL’S THEME IS ROME: Paul and the Underground Church. Each theme lasts for 2 weeks during June-August. There are different activities each of the 2 weeks that reinforce that theme. Volunteers can help once or sign up to help with the same activity multiple times. Opportunities for activities include  – Games, Crafts, Actors in Dramas. We will also need volunteers to serve as Family Group Leaders for small groups of children and to serve as actors portraying Paul, Brutus, Lucia and Marcus on 5 occasions to share the Bible lesson. We cannot have a successful Sunday School for our children without the help of awesome adult volunteers, so please sign up at the table in the Narthex to help!
 
DCE INTERN: Myrthe’s installation is scheduled for Sunday during both services. There will be a reception and pantry shower held in her honor on the 11th at 9:30. There will be a gift box for collection of cards. 
 
VBS REGISTRATION:
When registering your child for VBS, please note that the class they will be registering for is the grade that they just completed in school (not the grade they will be going in to).

We still need several more volunteer spots filled for VBS the week of June 19-23! Please consider helping share Jesus with these awesome kids! The spots to fill include:

Bible Discovery Station Leader

Imagination Station Assistant

Crew Leader for Preschool

Crew Leader for PreK/K

Check out the display in the narthex and pick up a slip or two of items that are needed for VBS. 
 
SENIOR FRIENDS will meet on June 11 at Mimi’s for lunch (71st & Memorial).
 
BUNKO will be June 13 at the home of Jody Zscheck at 7:00. There is a signup sheet.
 

ECC NEEDS BOOKS! The ECC is looking for books that are gently used for our school. Most of the books will be in classes with children ages 1-4 years old. Please donate age-appropriate and hardback books when possible as they wear out easily. They get lots of use! A donation box is located at the south entrance. Thanks so much!

 

GREETERS NEEDED! We are starting a new greeter schedule that will be handled by the church secretary. We are looking for 12 sets of greeters for both early and late service. There will be two sets of greeters scheduled each week (one set per north and south entrance). You will be scheduled to greet two weeks a month and twice a year. If you are currently a greeter or would like to become a greeter, please sign up on the sheet in the narthex for the service of your choice. The July schedule will be emailed to you in a couple of weeks and mid- month for the next month throughout the year. If you have any questions, contact Connie at the office.

 

SOUTH TULSA COMMUNITY HOUSE:  We are in great need of just about everything “canned,” as well as other proteins such as dried beans, peanut butter, meat based soups. We also need clean and labels removed prescription bottles which we use to distribute shampoo, body wash/soap and the like. They request that you not donate any Ramon noodles.

 

COLLECTION CENTER:  Please remember to collect various ink cartridges and electronic equipment for the LWML; food and household supplies for South Tulsa Community House; various labels for ECC (check out the collection center for a list); various coupons for the military; eye glasses for MOST Ministries. All these items can be dropped off at the collection center at the south entrance.
