Cooking & Creating for a Cause Summer Camp >     Registration is now in progress for Vacation Bible Camp. Registration forms are available from the church office by phoning 518-283-4420. Registration is open to all youth from the Wynantskill area. The camp is held at the church from 9:00 AM to Noon on weekdays. The dates for campers going into 2nd thru 4th grades are July 16th to 20th. Campers going into 5th thru 8th grades will meet on August 6th to 10th. The registration fee is $15. The major activities at camp are cooking and sewing. The items created by the campers are used as charitable donations. Campers will learn about Christian service by making food, pillows and other sewn items. They will also learn from bible lessons that will be shared.

Children & Worship >     All children ages 3 to 7 are invited to participate in our Children & Worship program when they are dismissed from worship in the sanctuary following Pastor's story for children. The children will hear God's Word, partake in a feast, are encouraged to present God's story for themselves, and before they leave they each receive a special blessing from the leader. We are hopeful that our children will experience the beauty of worshiping God, the One who loves them and cares for them today, tomorrow, and always.
