Where Jesus’ Love is One of a Kind!
We’ve got the solution to summertime boredom……
Send your kids to Weird Animals Vacation Bible School,
where they’ll discover Jesus’ miraculous power!
This is the spot that’s WILD with Bible adventure
Each day your child will take part in fun Bible learning they can see, hear, touch and even taste! Bible Point crafts, team-building games, lively Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the wildly fun activities that help faith flow into real life. Every day, kids choose a Daily Challenge – an exciting way to live out what they’ve learned. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.)
Weird Animals VBS is great fun for children 3 years old and potty trained through 6th grade. Kids that have completed 6th grade are encouraged to be helpers. Even teenagers enjoy signing on as Crew Leaders who help younger children. And parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us each day, because that’s when we’ll be having Faith Fusion Finale – a daily celebration of Jesus’ power you won’t want to miss.
So Mark these days on your calendar:
Monday August 18th through August 22nd, 2013
The fun starts at 9am and will end 12pm.

If you would like to become more confident about managing your health and spend more time doing things you enjoy, consider attending the six week workshop “Take Control of Your Health.” You will be motivated to achieve healthier lifestyle habits and a more positive attitude on life. Beginning Tuesday May13th from 10 am to 12:30 pm at Waretown UMC, 17 Bryant Road. You will receive a book “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions” and enjoy a healthy snack.
LEARN TO OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES OF CHRONIC DISEASE
Do you or someone you care about have a chronic health condition like diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, or depression? You are not alone more than a million Americans have one or more chronic conditions.
People with long-term health issues have similar concerns and problems. Physical symptoms are only one of the challenges of dealing with a chronic condition. Feelings of sadness over the loss of the ability to do what you want to do, fear of what may happen in the future, the need to change familiar habits and behaviors, isolating from friends and family not wanting to burden them also creates stress.
The workshop called “Take Control of Your Health” was created by Stanford University to help you understand the impact of the condition on your lives and your emotions. The key is to prevent the illness from defining your life through nutrition, exercise, changing your thinking and disease self-management. The course is designed so that regardless of your chronic condition, you will learn techniques to help you deal with your circumstances. Some of the techniques include problem solving, pain management, communication skills, healthy eating, understanding and dealing with your emotions, proper use of medications, and fatigue and stress management. The workshop is led by trained individuals who have chronic diseases themselves. They can empathize and understand what you are going through.
You will design your own plan of action and receive the support of other group members to help you accomplish your goals. This informative and interactive six- week workshop will begin on Tuesday May 13th 10:00AM to 12:30PM at Waretown United Methodist Church, 27 Bryant Road, Waretown. It is offered free of charge. Everyone will receive a book, a relaxation CD and refreshments will be provided. Registration is required by calling 609-693-3134
There are two ways of moving forward…either we can allow our illness to manage us and our lives, or we can learn to manage it and get our life back!
Take Control of Your Health by contacting 609-693-3134 (or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org) and registering before 5/10/2014
