We’ve had an awesome week exploring the coolest book on the planet at our Operation Arctic VBS! Nearly 100 kids have been learning about God’s amazing creation through science experiments, games, songs and Bible-based activities. You’ll get a taste of the week’s excitement on Sunday morning. Our VBS kids will be singing two songs they learned this week during our worship service. If your kids are participating, make sure you arrive about 15 minutes early. We can’t wait to see you Sunday!

AT THE MOVIES
If you love movies, then this series has just what you’re looking for. For five weeks starting today, Pastor Ronn will unpack biblical truths from some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Invite a friend and join us for this one-of-a-kind experience.
