Devotional Messages from Pastor Jordan
Children’s Ministry Coordinator Becky Fultz, myself, and leaders from the other churches who were partnering with us for Vacation Bible School made the decision to modify our VBS for this year.
Unfortunately, the nature of VBS is such that children and volunteers have to be gathered in close proximity to one another for games, crafts, snacks, etc., often touching shared supplies. We are instead preparing activities that families can use to have VBS at home. Each child will be able to pick up a bag which contains copies of Bible stories, game ideas, materials for crafts, and recipes for snacks. These will be available for pickup in mid-June.
We know it’s not the same as having an in-person VBS, but we hope this will allow children and families to still have some faith-filled fun together. We’re also committed to putting together an extra-special VBS in the summer of 2021.
Are you looking for materials to help your children during this time?

KIDS JAM SERVICE
Starting at 10 a.m., we provide both nursery care and a KIDZ JAM service to our families.
Nursery is 0-5 years old until Kindergarten. Children may be dropped off as early as 10 a.m., and may be signed in upon arrival. All nursery workers are background checked, and have experience with children.
Our KIDZ Jam service is open to K-6th grade students. From 10-10:30, K-6th grade students come in, use the bathroom, get water and snacks, and learn about the main Bible story of focus with an object lesson.
At 10:30, students receive children's bulletins to work on during the service. Students sit with Miss Becky until the Children's Moment in the service. Miss Becky provides a small children's sermon that reflects the theme for that Sunday morning service. The students then follow Miss Becky back to the classroom to have games and crafts revolving around that Bible story lesson. Students may be dropped off and dismissed at the same location each week.

Our children earn KIDZ BUCKS every time they attend Sunday School or KIDZ JAM service, bring their Bibles, bring a friend or new family member, and say a memory verse! Quarterly, students then decide if they are going to spend their KIDZ BUCKS or keep accruing them for larger prizes! This helps students form healthy habits to be implemented for the rest of their lives.
