Bulletin Inserts

News Flash

There are many ways to help spread the word about DuBois Center and our shared ministry. One is by utilizing bulletin inserts which are periodically included in Weekly Connection or sent directly to churches as print-ready PDF documents. All you need to do is copy, cut and stuff! Three are currently available to promote our upcoming spring and summer programs, as well as volunteer opportunities.

Camp Schedule

Summer Camp & Service Saturday

Block Party & Summer Volunteers

Two Just You & Me sessions!

Just You And Me

Spend quality one-on-one time with a special child in your life – son, daughter, niece, nephew, godchild… and make memories that last a lifetime. Explore the creek, play on the water mat, create a treasure, ride a horse or canoe together. Make new friends around the dining table and during family game times. Learn more about God’s love during BLAST and Vespers. This program is designed for adults with children age 5-7.

There are two sessions from which to choose: June 9-11 and June 23-25. Last summer, both sessions were full with waiting lists, so don’t delay! Online registration is now open. Brochures are in the mail or can be found online.

Load up right after church, grab some lunch, and head to camp.

We’ll be on the move from 1-4 pm, but arrive when you can. Youth must be accompanied by adult chaperones or parents. RSVP by Monday, April 29 – we need to stock the coolers and send you permission forms. For more information check out this flyer.

Calling all Quilters!

Quilt Image

For over a decade, a quilt drawing has been a significant piece of the annual DuBois Center Fall Festival. In recent years, we have been blessed to have two or more art quality quilts donated to the drawing each year, which together have raised between $1,500 and $2,500 annually.

The quilts are typically donated by local church quilting groups and other friends of DuBois Center – would you or your quilting group be interested in donating a quilt for the 2019 Fall Festival? Queen size quilts seem to be the most popular, and those with designs appealing to a wide audience and made with love and prayers are perfect.

Ideally, the quilts begin traveling to local churches in August, so a July completion date works well. Please contact the DuBois Center office at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202 for more information. We’d love to talk to you about the possibilities.
