 #1: VBS Pre-Registration
Avoid the rush on opening night and pre-register this morning in the foyer for this year’s Vacation Bible School. You can also register online at FBCLaurel.com/VBS.  This year’s VBS music CDs will be given out to the first 50 families to pre-register. Tell your friends and neighbors and encourage them to sign up their kids as well for an exciting week of discovering the God of the universe!


Our weekly schedule of activities and ministries will be changing for the summer months. Use the printed flyer in your worship folder, as a handy reminder for Youth activities and our Sunday morning Children’s and Youth Bible Study, Power Up and Garden Ministries schedule. Please make note that the Youth schedule has been slightly revised from previous flyers.


The Youth ENVELOPE FUNDRAISER is in full swing. Please pick an envelope or two off the board in the ministry corner and match your donation with the number marked on the envelope. Make checks out to FBC Laurel with “envelope fundraiser” in the memo. Put your donation in the offering plate on Sundays or drop it off in Jenni Wilson’s mailbox in the office workroom during the week. Proceeds from this Fundraiser will go toward sending 20 youth to Philadelphia, PA from July 6th-8th to participate in XFUGE on Mission camp. Thanks so much for your support!


Join us at 6:00 pm in the Chapel for our Sunday Evening Worship with Pastor Brent.


Children will be directed to meet the group leaders who will escort them to the services during the 10:30 worship service. After service, children will be returned to rejoin their parents. PARENTS: Please stay in the FLC until your child returns. We ask that all children either remain with their parents in service or be escorted to and from children’s services by their leaders.


SHARE Food orders for June are due by 12:00 noon in the Sunday School office, June 11th. The Distribution date will be Saturday, June 24th.
