REGISTER NOW FOR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL, July 17 – 21: Have you registered your children and grandchildren for Vacation Bible School? Have you invited your friends’ and neighbors’ children to join them? We are using Group Publishing’s “Maker Fun Factory”, and we can’t wait to fill our church with boys and girls who will spend the week becoming hands-on inventors, and discovering how they are lovingly crafted by God. We will sing and have fun learning about God – our creator!

There is also a middle school program at the same time, for those students who have completed fifth grade and up, under the direction of Ed White. Please use the VBS registration form for those students as well.

Registration forms are available in the Narthex turnstile and on the LPC webpage, following this link: http://www.langhornepres.org/children/vbs-info/. Registrations are due July 1st. Contact VBS Director Tara Dampman at mtdampman@comcast.net, or Kay Brown in the church office 215-752-3200, kay.lpc@verizon.net, or text 215-584-2293.

No one in your family that fits the program? Your help is still needed.  Please watch the bulletin boards in the Narthex for ways in which you can help with supplies for Vacation Bible School.

HEY, LOOK AT MY ROBOT !! (PARTS NEEDED): Do you have an overstock of colorful buttons?  We need them in VBS this summer for the boys and girls to assemble robots!  We also need A LOT of empty 16 oz. tin cans with the label peeled off – 110 to be exact.  That’s a lot of robots to be created at the craft station on the first day of VBS!  Please bring your tin cans and buttons to the VBS collection station in Fellowship Hall, following either service on Sunday mornings, or any time you drop by church.  Just keep bringing them as you accumulate them. We need them by July 12th at the very latest.
 HELP US KEEP THE CUPBOARDS FULL: Make your contributions to the LPC Pantry timely by providing items needed the most: Spam, boxes of dry cereal, peanut butter, 16 oz. or smaller jars of jelly, hearty soups (with meat), and Campbell tomato soup. Don’t forget to check expiration dates.  There is a labeled blue container beneath the coat racks for LPC pantry donations. Thank you for your help in this ministry.
AID FOR FRIENDS MEALS: Share a meal with someone who is unable to prepare his or her own. Package up those left-overs or prepare extra servings of your favorite dishes for an Aid For Friends meal. Sharing soup is also appreciated. Pick up containers in Heritage Hall, follow the instructions and freeze it. Deliver the frozen meals to the AFF freezer in the LPC basement behind the kitchen.
