 “Trees of the Bible” + VBS for Children

Vacation Bible School returns in August for children ages preschool through rising 7th graders.  Join us for three evenings of fellowship and learning on this year’s theme, “Trees of the Bible.”  We’ll explore biblical stories that feature trees—the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden, the dove that returned a branch from an olive tree to Noah after the great flood, the metaphor Jesus uses, “I am the vine, you are the branches” (John 15:5) and more!  Cost is $10 per child, with a $20 max per family.  Click here to sign up:


“Creation Care 101” + VBS for Adults

The Rev. Dr. John Helt, presenter

While the children are learning about trees of the Bible, adult learners will have a 3-session course on creation care, led by the Rev. Dr. John Helt.  We will consider the Biblical and theological basis for creation care, the current state of climate change and the role of human culture, and how we can be "greener" in our homes and churches.  A timely subject!

Dr. Helt is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ (UCC) with proud Presbyterian moments in his past: a year of study in Edinburgh and singing in the St. Giles Cathedral choir there, and serving as interim pastor for Westminster Presbyterian Church in Madison.  He retired from St. Paul’s UCC in Colgate, Wisconsin in 2014 and is currently co-chair of the Wisconsin Conference UCC’s Creation Care Team.

Participants may come for supper at 5:30 or for evening prayer and the class from 6:20-7:45.  Register on the sign-up sheet in the parlor or online at

For more information, contact Ms. Larson in the church office (, 414-276-4757).
