Vacation Bible School Service Project

For this year’s Vacation Bible School (August 11) service project, First English is collecting school supplies for children at St. Joseph’s Villa ( 

St.  Joseph’s is a non-profit organization that works to create brighter futures for children of all socioeconomic backgrounds faced with developmental disabilities, diverse learning styles, mental health issues, homelessness and other challenges.

School supplies needed by the middle school students include book bags, children’s scissors, pocket folders (different colors), pencil boxes or zipper pouches, composition books (marbled cover), spiral notebooks (single subject) and 3 x 5  index cards. A complete list of requested items for you to take is with the donation box in the Wagner Room.  Thrivent will be contacted about funds for this project. Cash and check contributions for the school supplies can be made through your church offering with the note “Bible School Project- St. Joseph’s Villa.”

Volunteers are needed to organize the items on August 11 as part of Vacation Bible School. We need a lot of participants on this project to help make it a success! Contact Jeff Nelson ( if questions or you need a copy of the school supply list via email.
