DGFUMC provides a range of educational opportunities for children of all ages, including nursery care provided during worship hours, Pathfinders (Sunday School), and midweek family fellowship that is linked to children's choir rehearsals. The goal is to help children grow in faith, and become familiar with the Bible through a variety of methods, including storytelling and drama, music, video, games, science, cooking and art.

Virtual Bible School Begins June 8

Unfortunately, Summer Camp at Wesley Woods is cancelled, but Pastor John has come up with a fun and wonderful way to still be together in June - Virtual Bible School!

Virtual Bible School
This program is open to all children preschool through 6th grade. Typically, VBS stands for Vacation Bible School, but this year it stands for Virtual Bible School and it's going to be for four weeks in June!

Join us for Knights of North Castle!
Weekly Schedule
Truth (Daniel 3) in Week 1: June 8 - 12
Justice (1 Samuel 17:1-50a) in Week 2: June 15 - 19
Peace (Luke 2:1-20) in Week 3: June 22 - 26
Faith (Matthew 14:22-33) in Week 4: June 29 - July 3

There will be a Bible story as the focus for each week along with crafts, music, science, games, and other activities.

Every Monday (time to be determined), you will be invited to come to the church to pick up a bag containing all the craft materials and other things needed for the week of VBS.

Videos will be posted throughout the week to guide you through all the VBS activities at home.

Registrations Due Sunday, May 24
Registration is very important to have enough materials ready for pick up each Monday. Please register by Sunday, May 24, so that Pastor John has time to purchase the materials (sooner is better).

To register, click on this Google form here.

The cost of VBS will be $10 per child for the complete four-week program. You may pay when you pick up your first bag on Monday, June 8.
