Vacation Bible School – SeaSide Escape

Are you looking for an escape from the summer heat?  If so, come away with us for SeaSide Escape – the Vacation Bible School summer-time event for women being held July 17-19, from 10am to noon at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church. Against a background of a relaxing and peaceful stay at the beach, this Bible-based retreat focuses on the stories of Sarah and Hagar from Genesis. Through each session and activity, women will grow closer to God as they spend time in reflection and discover how God is active in their own lives. SeaSide Escape will be happening in Room 4 of the Education Building. Cost of the event is $15 per person. Registration deadline is June 27. Register online here or contact the church office at (480) 895-8766.

 Summer Bible Study – Book of James
The Book of James seems to have as many questions as answers. Who was James? Is it really a letter? When was it written? To whom was it written, and why? Is it about faith or works, or both?

The study begins Sunday, June 3, 10:20 AM and continues for five consecutive weeks each Sunday in the Alpha Conference Room. Hosted by Fred and Carol Benford, the study will be presented via PowerPoint and hand-outs. Come learn with us as we dig into this short but powerful book. Sign up in Lindsay Hall or call the Church Office for more information.
