 BALLOON RALLY DAY, Sunday, September 16

After the worship service we invite you to participate in our Balloon Launch in the church parking lot. These balloons will contain a Bible Verse, the Castile UCC address, phone number and e-mail address with a request to notify us the place where the person found this note.

We hope to launch 100 balloons to celebrate our Rally Day and beginning of our Bible Adventure Time. Please come and help us celebrate!

     Following the launch, we will have pizza and balloon cookies in the Embling Dining Hall.



Bible Adventure Time

     Our new curriculum will be “Echo the Story 36” from Cokesbury.

Echo the Story 36 is a 36-session Bible overview for youth using storytelling, creative reflection, and dialogue. Through this experiential approach, students find meaning and identity in the biblical narrative. The DVD contains 6 videos that give students a fast-paced review of previous sessions’ stories.


Youth Bible Study will start back up on Sunday, September 30 and will be held on the last Sunday of each month.

New curriculum titled Nothing Short of the Truth.  This book begins a lesson with a Disney short movie.  The movie is a kick off point for great conversation and learning.
