A summer kids event called Expedition Norway VBS will be hosted at Kirkwood Presbyterian Church from Monday, July 18th to Thursday, July 21st. It will be like taking a trip to Norway! Kids will sing catchy songs, play high-energy games, have some yummy Norwegian treats, experience cool Bible adventures, collect Bible memory makers, & explore what daily life is like for kids in Norway! We will also watch a video daily with kids in Norway showing us how they live! Family members & friends are encouraged to join in daily for some special time at 8 pm.

Making your computer an easier place to be...


Tip #1:  In Windows Vista or Windows 7: You can easily see what programs are running by a few cool tricks. The first trick is to press the alt key and the tab key together. This will show the open items in a windows. For more fun try pressing the windows key (Looks like a little windows flag icon) and the tab key together. Hold the windows key and press the tab key over and over again and the open windows on your computer will flip like a rolodex.

Coming soon!
