MAY TEACHING SERIES: HEROIC
A 4-week series from the New Testament on the Early Church
Every kid wishes they had superpowers, but with Jesus we don’t need x-ray vision or invisibility to be heroes! In this four-week series, kids will hear stories about the heroes of the early Church — the apostles and disciples who used their unique abilities to spread the good news of Jesus. Through their stories, we’ll see that anyone can do great things for God because God gives everyone a mission, the Holy Spirit gives us power, and we’re heroic when we work as a team!
JUNE TEACHING SERIES: MAKE IT OR BREAK IT
A 4-week series from the from Genesis on creation & early humanity
Whether it’s with LEGO bricks, Minecraft, or Roblox, kids (and adults!) love to make things — and sometimes break them. In this four-week series from the very beginning of the Bible, we’ll compare God’s ability to make good things with our tendency to break them. Through the stories of creation, the fall, Cain and Abel, and the Tower of Babel, we’ll see that God makes good things, unbreaks what’s been broken, and made us different on purpose, so we should honor God with the things we make.
JULY TEACHING SERIES: STAYCATION!
A 5-week series from Genesis on Abraham & his family
Grab some blankets and flashlights! We’re going to build a fort or jump on the couch because the floor is lava! That’s right — it’s time for a family staycation! In this five-week series about Abraham and his family (and our families, too!), kids will learn that God blesses us so we can bless others and God always shows us compassion. That’s why we can trust God (even when it’s hard to trust each other), always belong in God’s family, and can make peace with others — especially the people who live with us!
VBS: WILD LIFE
MONDAY JULY 10 — FRIDAY JULY 14 • 9AM — 4PM
Location: The Peoples Church – West Wing
Summer Camp for kids 4 years old to Gr. 5 (by end of June 2023)! As summer rolls around the corner, that also means it’s time for VBS!
Think about the weirdest animals you know. What noise does an aardvark make? Is an axolotl really smiling? Are glass frogs made of real glass? Is a wombat a type of bat? It’s wild that God helps each animal grow and thrive… and us, too! Wild Life is a 5-day adventure where kids discover how special they are to God and how wild it is that they can share their story, use their gifts, spend time with God, and spend time with others.
