    1. Hello and salutations to all! This is a Youth Ministry Update: To any who had heard that we were doing water activities for a big summer launch this evening -- you *were* correct. However, due to weather and the recent spread of illness, we will be reverting to somewhat more dry activities for this evening. If you would still like your child to be soaked in water so they get your car seats all wet, just let me know. I still have methods at my disposal.
      1. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
      2. 😂
    2. Good day Valley! I've got plenty of VBS follow work that needs to happen, but after our staff meeting today I wanted to give a heads up on things coming down the pipe for us. On our calendar here are the things we got going on: August: Terry Taylor Garage Sale Outreach September: Church Picnic/Baptisms out at Willow Grove October: Trunk or Treat November: Family Feast December: Something called, "Christmas" ever heard of that?" Anyway, I'm taking point on the Terry Taylor stuff now, and I've started putting together plans for the picnic. :D If you have any questions or want to help hit me up!
      1. I guess the better term would “volunteering my life group” 😂
      2. We could come down tonight to help, if thats what you decide.
      3. we are gonna take stuff down Thursday evening.

      Weekend Recap

      Hey Valley,

      This weekend we marveled at some of what God has done for us in Christ. His mercy, love and grace are gifts that leave us all in awe and I pray you were overwhelmingly encouraged. If you want to review or catch up on the message you can find it here and the sermon notes here.


      This coming weekend we will begin to look at our response to such a gift. I hope to see you in one of our services.


      We are also celebrating what God did this past week at our VBS. I want to ask you to keep praying for the kids that came to faith and those who also grew in their confidence in who Christ is and what he has done. Speaking of celebrations… did you know this past weekend we had three English service as well as hosted church services in three other languages (Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish). How cool!



      1. Hey VBS crew! We have a sister church we would love to bless with our left over VBS decorations and curriculum. If you could please bring back any curriculum you have this weekend that would be great 😁
        1. Myrna, there will be someone in the office all week from at least 9:30am to 4pm. If that doesn't work, give the office a call and we can work something out.
        2. Ok Thanks I will drop it off this week
        3. It’s at the Heights
      2. Please pray.

        Hey church family, This was an eventful week it ended up being a historic day. First of all, I want to invite you to thank the Lord for the great week of VBS! Those who served demonstrated the love of Jesus all week long and the Lord used them to lead at least 5 children to trust in Jesus! What a glorious outcome! Then today, the Supreme Court overturned the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision from nearly 50 years ago. This landmark day signifies that the US government no longer makes a national decision regarding abortion, but now it is in the hands of each individual state. Please be in prayer regarding a few key points: 1) That each state will make the killing of unborn babies illegal. 2) That those who support abortion will have their hearts and minds changed. 3) That pregnancy care centers will be protected as those who support abortion are not only threatening but acting with violence toward such ministries. 4) That Christians will increase their support of pregnancy centers and of mothers in need. 5) That Christians will rise up in droves to adopt and care for needy children. Thank you church family, Loving people toward Jesus, Pastor Mike
        1. My heart is full. What an amazing week. Thank you to everyone who served, decorated, prayed, bought, delivered, etc to make VBS happen! As of now I’ve learned of 5 kids who have decided to follow Christ. There is much to celebrate, but let’s start there 😁
          1. It felt like such a cohesive group of leaders. Teens filling in and being flexible. Adults consulting and flexing their stations to meet the needs. The kids felt God’s love, and that is an awesome seed that was planted, tended to, or for those 5 kids flourishing. All glory to God!!!
          2. This just in! Got a message from a mom, that their child came home and asked Jesus to come into his heart this afternoon!!

          1. Hey VBS team! I just wanted to be clear about the carnival. If you have been serving this week you are invited to come Friday night to the carnival and mingle with families of students, but you do not have to! It's been a long and rewarding week, and I thank you so much for doing what you are doing! The carnival is just the cherry on top! :D
            1. Thank you to all of those who have come together to pour into our children's hearts this week.
