Family Formation's most recent summer event was our CIRCUS VBS, and it was a lot of fun!  It was great seeing so many of you. We want to thank the volunteers who made it all possible: Mary Forbes, Chris Godbout, Maureen Spokas, Jennifer Seaver, Jennifer Ross, Anna Sechrist, Mary Ryan did a wonderful job preparing their lessons and activities/crafts and Eileen Riley, Russell, Charlie & Isaac Platt, as well as our every-helpful sexton, Ben Johnson worked very hard setting up the event!  All fifty people who attended were grateful for all their hard work and dedication. Check out the photos!


Below are the links to SIX SHORT VIDEOS about the stories we learned during Circus VBS. For those who were able to attend, these videos might serve as a nice "review". For those who couldn't attend, these videos will give you a short overview of the stories. Each provides one more example of how MIGHTY our God is, and how he keeps his promises and will always have our backs!  

Over the next few weeks, if some afternoon it's just too hot, or rainy, to go outside . . .  you can click on these links!  We hope that you will enjoy them -- and learn something in addition!


Over the upcoming weeks of summer vacation, I will be thinking of you and continuing to pray for you!  I am planning some awesome fun (and COVID-safe) activities and lessons for the early fall. So keep any eye out for those plans in your email INBOX or check back on this page for updates!  

In the meantime, enjoy your time together as a family.  

The Lord bless you
   and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
   and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
   and give you peace.

                            Numbers 6:24-26
