July Events

VBS - July 29th-August 1st CANCELLED

July 16, 2024

From Aldersgate United Methodist Church


To all the families who registered for Aldersgate United Methodist Church’s Vacation Bible School: 

It is with great disappointment that I must announce we are canceling Aldersgate UMC’s Vacation Bible School, Camp Firelight. Registration ended yesterday.   Registrations were significantly less than in previous years.  The volunteers who were filling Station Leader roles met on Sunday and concluded that there were not enough participants to run a workable VBS.  Like you, we were saddened by this decision.


If you have paid for VBS a full refund will be mailed to you. 

Again, I want to thank you for registering for Camp Firelight Vacation Bible School at Aldersgate and apologize for any inconvenience to your family.
