Livingston United Methodist Church invites your children to join us for Vacation Bible School next month.
When? Monday through Wednesday June 7-9 from 5:45 – 8:30 p.m.
Who? Children going into pre-K through 6th grade
We will have three groups: little ones (pre-K and Kindergarten), younger children (1st through 3rd grade), older children (4th through 6th grade). They will be together in the sanctuary at the beginning and end of each evening (Bible lesson and music/singing), then rotate through three stations (craft, science, eating). We will have workers who lead each station. And workers who stay with and shepherd each age group from beginning to end.
What? We will use the Press Play: Get in the Mix curriculum from Orange VBS which emphasizes the confidence we can have because of Jesus.
You can pre-register your child(ren) using this Google Form. If you plan to bring more than one child then please complete another Google Form – fill it out and submit again. This makes it easier to create one simple list of children who will attend along with their information.

Note = There was a problem with the link which we did not catch until Saturday June 5. We apologize for that – because it means people were *not* able to pre-register their child. The link should work correctly now.
Miss Armetta put together a file with several resources to help families observe the season of Advent. Includes (1) devotions (2) Advent crafts (such as making an advent wreath from materials you have around the home) and (3) coloring page with Advent and Christmas pictures.
Your child (or other member of the family) can color the coloring sheet and *bring that to the church before December 20*. We plan to incorporate your/their artwork in a presentation. Tentatively that we will show on Christmas Eve. Depends on what Pastor Rick and our church council decide together. You can print the coloring page yourself at home. Although we have made a few copies that you can pick up at the church.

(2) Many of you might be aware you can borrow books and even watch video online from the Livingston Parish Library using the Hoopla app. I have installed Hoopla on my Android phone *and* on our Roku device at home. I have used it a few times to borrow books and to watch shows/movies.
While we are on the subject the Livingston Parish Library offers a variety of resources (eBooks, video, music, even eComics) through their digital library. Yes you can access these resources through the Hoopla app mentioned above. *However* I notice Livingston Parish Library also offers video resources through Kanopy. I am a huge fan of Kanopy and also have it installed on my phone and Roku device.
Kanopy is especially good for classic and foreign cinema, documentaries, short films. (I am also a huge fan of the Great Courses – basically university-level courses – and have purchased several for personal use. East Baton Rouge Parish Library makes many available through Kanopy. Livingston Parish Library makes some available through Hoopla.)
Kanopy also has Kanopy Kids with a huge variety of offerings.
Edited a little. Took out several minutes waiting for the stream to begin.
