The Shared Ministry of Eastman Salem and PdC United Methodist Church invites all children who are between the ages of 3 yrs and 10 yrs old (completed 3K through fourth grade) to join us for Vacation Bible School. Monday, August 9, 2021 to Friday, August 13, 2021, from 5:30 pm until 8:15 pm. The evening will provide youth with a light meal, story time, music, craft and science activities that all focus around a fun message of God as we become Knights of North Castle.  

Knights throughout history were strong and courageous and were warriors for the kings they served. With each daily lesson the youth dive into the story of these brave individuals who protected the weak and never backed down from doing what they were called to do.  

Registration is open until July 15, 2021. Register at Any questions contact Cindy Payne by calling 608-734-9443.  


*OFFERING / DOXOLOGY                                      #95 
  Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
  Praise him all creatures here below;
  Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
  Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

Ever-faithful God, we long to be faithful givers, modelling ourselves on you who gives everything to us. May your Spirit of abundance, which gives more than we ask or imagine, grace these gifts for your kingdom in Jesus’ name, Amen.
