VBS: "I WONDER"
August 5-9 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Vacation Bible School is an all-church event we host each year for our Kid City and neighborhood kids. This year’s theme is “I Wonder”, a STEM based week of learning and fun focusing on the God who created it all! We will talk about the gifts God gave us and wonder about how they might be used to serve in life! We are looking for volunteers, donations, and kids to join us on this adventure!

Sunday Morning connect has begun. Be sure to join us in the youth room between 1st and 2nd services on Sunday mornings this summer to check-in, say “hey”, and grab a couple of donuts. We hope to stay connected with all middle and high school students this summer by touching base and keeping up to date on how God is working in your life.

Shared life doesn’t only mean weekly groups, it means sharing in all forms of community. These events are a great way to involve the whole family in Shared Life this summer! There are also links and descriptions of the Shared Life Events on the Life Groups page.
