Out theme this year is MOVE! Families will be shown people in the Bible who changed direction and moved. And they all had one thing in common: somewhere along the way, they came face to face with Jesus. They discovered who He was. And once that happened, there was no standing still or going back. VBS will be Sun, Jul. 26 to Thu, Jul 30 from 6-8:15 pm. The schedule each evening is as follows:


6:00-6:10 Parent Drop-Off

6:10-6:30 Opening & Prayer

6:30-7:00 Dinner & Large Group

7:00-7:15 Small Group

7:15-8:15 Craft, Mission and Game Rotations

8:15-8:30 Large Group & Closing

New Directory App

We are in the process of updating everyone's membership and contact information for our new directory. If you have a recent family photo you can either submit it electronically by emailing it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or drop off a photo to the church office that we can scan and return to you. If you don’t have a family photo, we will be offering some photo sessions on Sunday mornings in June to have picture taken.

The Communications Team has chosen a new web based directory tool that also has an app for Android and Apple devices. In addition, we will also still be able to make printed copies of the directory. The application is called Instant Church Directory.

Once we have updated everyone’s information, we will make the app available, and provide printed versions for those who want one. The great thing about this new service is that we can make updates at any time and the changes will be immediately available on your app.
