Save the Date for VBS – On July 20-24 Annapolis Evangelical Lutheran Church and St. Paul will again be partnering for a fun and exciting week of Vacation Bible School. We will be meeting from 9 a.m. to noon each day. This year’s program is SonSpark Labs, a week of laboratory adventures and fun. Through their adventures, children will discover God’s Big Plan—-2 MAKE Us, 2 BE WITH Us, 4 Us 2 KNOW Him, 2 SAVE Us and 2 LOVE Us 4-Ever. We will have a great time with lively songs, hilarious skits, creative crafts, exciting games, Bible stories and tasty snacks – all of the things that make VBS so much fun for children. On top of that, we will be helping children learn that God’s plan for everyone is Jesus! Please mark your calendars now to join us. Registration forms will be coming soon.

“New Beginnings” Starts on Thursday, June 11 – New Beginnings is our “Introduction to Lutheran Christianity” class. We offer it three times per year, and the class will meet this summer on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the church library. It is aimed at those who are new to Christianity or for those who come to us from different Christian denominations. To sign up, contact Pastor Brian (church office: 410-268-2400; cell: 410-858-0001; email@example.com). If you are interested, but cannot come on June 11, please let Pastor know that, too!

St. Paul Contemporary Christian Authors Book Club – We will be on hiatus for the summer, which gives us plenty of time to read our next book. At our next meeting on Tuesday, September 15, at 7:00 p.m. in the church library, we will be discussing an exciting novel titled “A Skeleton in God’s Closet” by Paul Maier. The protagonist is archaeologist Dr. Jonathan Weber, the son of an LCMS pastor, who makes a discovery that becomes a nightmare that many fear will be the death rattle of Christianity. “Carefully researched and compellingly written, A Skeleton in God’s Closet explores the tension between faith and doubt when science and religion collide. In the end, it’s a thought provoking page turner driven by one man’s determination to find the truth—no matter what the cost.”
For a list of the books we will be reading in the fall, contact Herm Schmidt (410-263-5529, firstname.lastname@example.org).
