Life Craft - A Multifaceted Adult Creative, Soulful, Cerebral Nourishment Event


Most of us can think back to our days as kids in Vacation Bible School with fondness. Faith Formation and Worship and Arts Committees are joining forces to offer adult classes that will occur simultaneously with Children’s Vacation Bible School.  If the classes listed below interest you and you are concerned about child care – enroll your child/children in VBS.  If you don’t have any kids to worry about, then also come and join us.  There will be two sessions each night and different offerings on each night.  You can pick, choose or refuse – but you will ENJOY!  Call a friend that is not a member of KAUMC and have them join you.

The cost of registration is $10 for the entire four days.  Registration for these classes will be in Realm. Stay tuned for links!
