The fun began Monday night and will continue each evening this week! Our building was filled with 39 kids and plenty of VBS staff who made sure everyone learned, had fun and was safe. If your child wasn’t here, we hope to see them tonight. We have groups for kids from 4 through 12. Once again the Go Fish guys will lead us in great music, fun games and crafts but most importantly, solid Bible teaching that will help kids learn how to live a life that gives glory to God! And parents, there’s no need for you to “drop-and-run” – we have a great parenting program available for you while your kids are at VBS. Check out the information in “Help for Parents” on our home page.
“Getting to the Heart of Parenting” began on Monday evening, but you are still welcome to join this group. We’ll be here every night this week from 6:30 to 8:30.
We all want to raise children who are respectful, obedient and polite. But the fact is our children wrestle with the same sin nature that we do, and being respectful, obedient and polite does not come naturally. As sinners, we are selfish and want to do what pleases us. Period. It takes a change of heart to change these desires. A serious change. A change of heart that only God can bring about.
This curriculum by Paul David Tripp gets to the heart – your heart and your child’s heart. Come and learn with us as we see the root of all parenting challenges and learn God’s way of bringing about lasting change.
We have childcare for kids who are age 3 and younger, and children who are between 4 and 12 will participate in our VBS program.
Pastor Barry has begun leading a summer small group study using “The Gospel According to Joshua”. We’ll look at how the Israelites entered the Promised Land, see promises that God made to the Israelites and find Christ in the book of Joshua. Even though the study has started, you’d still be more than welcome to join us! We’ll continue to meet at the church at 6:30pm on August 3rd, August 17th and August 31st.
Everyone had a BLAST at the Fellowship Picnic at Mary and Rusty R’s house! THANK YOU, MARY AND RUSTY!!
