  1. Thanks Jeff! This is a great list. I am posting it on my fridge :) Can I suggest another topic? If any churches are offering day camps this summer and sports camps, please post here. I have parents scrambling for free and low cost ways to keep their kids occupied this summer. Music programs/singing programs are also in demand.
