On Monday evening everyone is invited to celebrate what God has done through Student Life’s Discover Camp! Many of our students participated in a three-day camp where they were guided by different members of our church body to “discover” their gifts and begin to understand the intersection between their gifts and God’s Kingdom. Breakouts included music, dance, building, sports, multi media art and behind the scenes (production tech). Come enjoy snacks while the students showcase what they learned. The evening will start at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium.

There are several opportunities in the next few months to support our sort term missions teams. Check out the different ways you can participate:

Help support the five short term missions trips planned this summer and fall! Visit the Giving Tile boards located in the lobby and choose a numbered tile that corresponds with the amount you would like to give. The teams appreciate donations in any amount, large or small!

Have some more spring cleaning to do? Gather up and donate gently used items to our missions garage sale, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 17. Collection drop off is June 15 and 16 at the Soteno’s house, 211 Willow Bend, Bolingbrook. Contact Maria Soteno for more info:

Hey, kids! You are invited to an exciting week of Vacation Bible School July 31 to Aug. 4! At Ocean Commotion, kids will dive deep into the account of Noah and the Flood from the book of Genesis!

Each day will include crafts, games, music, snacks and fun with friends! VBS is open to children ages 4 to 10. Cost is $15, which includes a t-shirt. Please register by July 17:
