Bible Studies, worship experiences, games, crafts, water fun are just a few of the fun things we experience each summer at Children’s Camp!! Click HERE for more information and to register.
Kick-off on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19
Faith at Home To-Go will be our theme and emphasis this year to coincide with Dr. Wiles preaching emphasis, Blessing Our Families! God created the home as the “seat” for spiritual development. With this in mind, our church is making an intentional effort to partner with your family by offering Faith at Home To-Go this summer. Faith at Home To-Go is a family-focused experience where preschool, children, youth and parents will gain a better understanding of what it means to truly be a family planted in our community and our world.
Beginning on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19 we will have Faith at Home “To-Go” boxes available for families to pick up. This To-Go box will be packed with family devotions, family activities, online resources featuring a word from our pastor, Dr. Wiles, that you and your family can do on your own time, in your homes, at the park, on vacation, or even with other families in your neighborhood if you choose.
Be sure to take part in this summer long emphasis as we strive to bless our families, influence our community and grow in our relationship with God and others! #blessingourfamilies
