Church Office Update – Summer Kick-off!


2019 Vacation Bible School

This year’s VBS Closing Program will be held on Thursday evening, June 27, at 7 PM.  We will celebrate what we have done and learned about ‘God’s Good Creation/’  We will share songs, crafts, and snacks.  We’ll also give YOU an opportunity to share in our VBS Mission Project – providing goats, chicks, honeybees, and/or a fish farm to our international neighbors, helping them to feed their families and communities.

If you can’t attend the VBS Closing Program on Thursday, during Worship on Sunday, June 30, we will take a special offering to add to what the children have been giving.  You can contribute either cash or checks, made out to ‘ELC of Durham,’ with ‘VBS Mission Offering’ on the memo line.

Congratulations, 2019 Graduates!
