Preschool and VBS

First Church Family,
At times, we think of summer as a period of time to relax, vacation, and get ready for the fall. While all of those dreams are partially fulfilled during this time, we are FUMC are incredibly busy following God’s plan.

By now you certainly have heard that Melanie Anderson, our Robbins Pre-School Director of 27 years, is retiring this summer. Melanie leadership has kept our program at the top of the list of great pre-school programs in our county, and will be sorely missed.

Our SPRC is working hard to replace her with a top-notch person. If you know of someone who might be interested in either our director’s position or an assistant position, please have them contact the church.

We will honor Melanie with a reception following our worship services on July 11. Please make sure to be with us for that, as we thank her and wish her well on her well-deserved retirement.

As you know, we continue to move toward being fully open across our many program ministries. After missing Vacation Bible School last year because of the COVID pandemic, we have scheduled this summer’s VBS for August 9 – 12, from 9:00AM to NOON. Please be ready to register your children and grandchildren, your neighbor’s children and grandchildren, and any other young ones for that event.

Children are so important to us at FUMC. Since we are not able to offer Children’s Sunday School until September, VBS is an important opportunity to provide them with much needed Christian instruction and modeling.

We need volunteers for VBS. Please contact our Tara Hatton at today to tell her that you could help out.

And finally, remember that on July 4 we will have one service at 10:00AM in the

Blessings and love,

Pastor Dave
