Vacation Bible School – June 25 to 29

Vacation Bible school is coming soon! This year our theme will be Sky: Everything is possible with God. At Sky VBS, kids imagine what it would be like to bounce among the clouds, soar with eagles, and reach for the stars. The Bible comes to life in new and powerful ways as kids explore why nothing is impossible with God. Through every experience, kids find that they can trust God. VBS will be held at our Springfield campus on June 25 to 29 from 6 PM to 8:30 PM.

You can register at this site.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Dulci Harms.

May Family Virtue: Responsibility

Responsibility virtue

Our May family virtue is Responsibility: showing you can be trusted with what’s expected of you.

We hope that you’ll join us as we work to help your children grasp the importance of this virtue for their lives. Our Focus Group leaders and Storytellers will use Bible stories and activities each Sunday to teach your children about God. The video and GodTime cards below are helpful tools to help you teach them throughout the week at home! The first Sunday of the month we’ll also have additional Cue Resources available to help!
