Vacation Bible Camp
The time for camp is fast approaching (July 11-15).  Through the story of Joseph, we will explore the theme of :


Monumental: Celebrating God’s Greatness. One of the bible points for the week is: “God is with you everywhere.” It is a message that carries a lot of meaning in our world today. The bible story centers on the time that Joseph was imprisoned – unjustly! Yet, even in that circumstance, Joseph continued to live out his faith. This will be our first year back in person and we are looking forward to a great time of learning, fun, and fellowship.


All Church Retreat
Not too many weeks after VBC is the all church family retreat (August 5-7). We will gather at Redwood Glen and introduce our church theme for the coming year: : “Restore-Refresh-Renew” and the scripture text is Psalm 51:10 -12.  Our adult retreat leader will be the Rev. Dr. Barbara Jim-George.
