SAVE THE DATE!
VBS is coming……June 24-28, 2018

REGISTRATION OPENS MAY 1!

Wilmington Church of the Brethren will be joining RPUMC this year since they decided on the same dates and VBS materials.  Dinner will be provided each evening from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. followed by a venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive.  This year's VBS anchors kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms.

BookClub

At our June meeting, Book Club discussed "The Boys in the Boat" by Daniel James Brown.  Our next meeting will on Wednesday, July 11 at 7 PM.  At that meeting, we will discuss "For One More Day" by Mitch Albom.  Our August book will be "A Gentleman in Moscow" by Amor Towles.

We have several books on our list for reading in future months including "Ordinary Grace" and "The First Phone Call from Heaven."  If you see a book that you like or have one to suggest, or if you are in the mood for lively conversation and good fellowship, please join us at a future meeting.  We would love to have you come out and share in our spirited discussions and good fellowship.
