Bay Vue UMC (BVUMC) will be hosting our 2nd Annual Back to School Party on Saturday, August 26th from 11 am till 2 pm. This event was begun last year by the United Methodist Women (UMW) at BVUMC out of their desire to grow their relationship with the local schools. During the school year, members the UMW and friends meet with students at Crenshaw Elementary and Middle School, to read with several students for an hour. "It is such a joy to spend that time with the boys and girls and hear them gain confidence in their reading skills over time" says Pastor Valerie Hudson.
The Back to School Party is Bay Vue's way of helping students have one last hurrah of fun and having access to free books to take home and read. The event is open to all Bolivar Peninsula students and their parents. There will be hot dogs, drinks, and a water slide, so wear your swimsuit. Information about health and safety will be available through two community groups who be at the event. Riceland Clinic will be there to offer free blood pressure checks, and Peninsula Emergency Medical Services will have an ambulance on site and answer questions the students may have.
At Bay Vue we say, "Come as you are", whether it is at this summer event, or at worship on Sunday. We look forward to seeing you!
