Everest Vacation Bible School
To be held at Pilgrim Lutheran
Peace will be joining forces with our neighbor to the south, Pilgrim Lutheran Church, for vacation Bible school this year! The name of the program is Everest. Everest is for kids from age 4-1/2 years to those entering 5th grade and will run from 9 AM to Noon on July 13-16, with a BBQ and Ice Cream Finale on Thursday, July 16 at 6 PM . Students in grades 6 and up can be team leaders, and many adult volunteers are also needed.
To volunteer or to register children for VBS, visit Pilgrim’s website at this link: http://pilgrimpuyallup.org/childrens-ministries/vacation-bible-school-2015/; there is a link for online registration at the bottom of the page, or call the church office at Pilgrim, (253) 848-3680. The church address is 10510 136th Street E.
Puyallup, WA 98374
At Everest, kids discover what it means to hold on to God’s mighty power in everyday life. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and dig into yummy treats, and experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Summit Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.
Kids at Everest VBS will also participate in a local mission project.

Have you ever wanted to be more involved at church but didn’t know what you could do or who to ask? You’re in luck! We’ve now made it easy to volunteer during our Sunday services.
Every week, dozens of volunteers work together to help make each service run smoothly. Without the help of the volunteers, each Sunday’s service wouldn’t go off as planned.
Other ways to get involved such as helping in Sunday School or with the youth, tying quilts, joining in a study group, singing in the Peace Choir, ringing in the hand bell choir Resounding Joy, or singing and playing with the contemporary worship band Cornerstones, visiting a shut-in, volunteering around the property or in the office or perhaps you have an area of talent and gifting you’d like to share.
See Virginia Spaulding, Peace’s Volunteer Coordinater, at 253268-0996 or the church office to learn more and get involved.
VOLUNTEER TEAM UPDATE
The first ever team meeting for volunteering was held on December 3. Karla Steinberg led the meeting describing the INS and outs of how volunteer teams has worked in other churches and could be a benefit here at Peace.
There were handouts including team list, descriptions of volunteer jobs, and the ever important signup sheet. For the pilot meeting we had an awesome response, with many first time volunteers. Yes we still have unfilled spots, but we have some time to fill these spots, and are sure with Gods help they will be filled shortly.
After the meeting the members attended the Advent Supper and Holden Vesper Service.
Part of the Volunteer team meetings is to meet and greet old and new friends here at Peace, so at each meeting there will be time for socializing. Because time is precious, Team one has decided to serve appetizers when hosting to Team Two.
Team One will be notified by e-mail that they will host Team Two on Monday, January 5, 2015 @ 5:00 pm. It would be appreciative that Team One brings an appetizer of their choice to the meeting.
Team two will receive a volunteer invited by mail with time and date.
