Christmas VBS

christmas-movies-feature

 

Saturday, December 3, 2016, 10:00 – 2:00

Pender is excited to once again host Christmas Vacation Bible School!

We’d love to lighten your load this holiday season and give you the gift of time to prepare for Christmas. Your children will have a wonderful time learning about the true meaning of Christmas while moving through different rotations of Christmas Story, craft, music and recreation.   The children will be served lunch, so please note any allergies your child has on the registration form.

Children ages 3 through 6th grade are welcome.   Please note that all children attending MUST be potty-trained.

Please note: 2 adults per classroom are needed to help shepherd children at each rotation. Sign up to help by emailing Joni or on the Connection Card on Sunday.

The fee for this event is $10 per child or $20 per family, to cover the cost of food and craft materials.   The fee is payable during registration.

Registration closes November 28.  Don’t miss out!

Since it is Jesus’s Birthday we ask each participant to consider bringing a NEW toy / book as a gift for the “TOYS FOR TOTS” Campaign. The Marines will distribute all your donations to less fortunate children before Christmas. Please don’t bring any food or toy guns/weapons and also gift needs to be unwrapped.

The tickets must be purchased by Oct. 30th so we will know the number of people. The price of the tickets: $8 per adult, $5 for children between 5 and l0 years. Children under 5 will be free. Family ticket for $30. 

Consider pre-ordering a handmade cornucopia at the Chicken Chili Luncheon ticket area.
