1. VBS 2014 – Weird Animal Fun!

0R1B4899VBS is in full swing and it has been an amazing week so far. Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers, and to those of you who generously donated to our supply list, you made it possible to help over 800 kids learn more about the God who loves them.

The VBS Campers will be singing in services THIS SUNDAY at the 9:30am & 11:00am services. They have been learning a ton of fun VBS songs and they are looking forward to singing and dancing on sage this Sunday! Parents, please drop off your kids (ages K-5th grade) on “The Rooftop” on Sunday morning before the service you plan to attend. They will sing in worship and then go back to “The Rooftop” for their very own Extreme Worship.

We have been sending out a daily blog each day packed full of pictures, quotes and videos so you can be a part of the excitement too! If you missed them, take a look at all the fun we are having…
