Vacation Bible School     August 7-11     9am-12:30pm

Once again, St. Mark’s is partnering with Storrs Congregational Church to offer kids an opportunity to engage with the Bible through music, song, and imagination. This year’s theme is “Welcome Stranger!” Vacation Bible School is free, and open to the first 50 children from our congregations who register. Please let the church office know if you can help out. Registration information will be available in the next few weeks.

Think about it…

“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, . . . and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.”– 2 Corinthians 5: 17-19
