I am so grateful to all of you who have been helping with VBS preparations: coming in to decorate and build sets, donating supplies and money, and so much more! This is a huge project and we are so blessed to have an army of workers to help. We couldn’t do it without you! Please be in prayer for the leaders as we gear up for VBS and put the finishing touches on our preparations. If you would like one more opportunity to help, stay after second service on Sunday, June 24 to help transform our church into a desert island! And please pray for the 100+ kids who are signed up to come! Love, Julie


Hey parents, just a note about Greenhousefor the summer! Beginning June 3, kids in both services will go to the sanctuary for worship and then will be dismissed to Greenhouse afterwards. Watch for the “Kids, it’s time for Greenhouse” slide to show up on the screen. Thanks for helping us with this! (Babies and preschoolers can continue to go to class at the beginning of service.)
