VBS 2015 - Everest Expedition

Our 2015 VBS program, "Everest:  Conquering Challenges WithGod's Almighty Power," was a HUGE success!  It was a week filled with excitement, music, games, crafts, and Bible study.  Thanks to the talent and energy of our VBS Director, Ms. Christine Burrell, everyone had an amazing week.  The church and narthex were transformed into a Mt. Everest Base-Camp that was absolutely incredible to see.  It created the perfect level of enthusiasm as soon as the children and parents walked in the door. 

A special thanks to all the adult and teenagers who volunteered to make this year's VBS so successful.  The week's theme was how the love of God helps us in every part of our lives, and the time our volunteers gave was indeed a living witness to that powerful love!

Watch the video below for a few of the week's highlights.

Good News for our Food Pantry Ministry!

       Wonderful food pantry donations in April, totaling 342 pounds!  Thank you for making this Easter season a blessed one for those in desperate need within our community!  Let’s continue to address the problem of food insecurity in the coming months. 

       We will be providing May’s donations of non-perishable food to The Place of Forsyth County, collecting food each week leading up to the 3rd Sunday of the month (May 17th – Breakfast Sunday), which is the official collection day for the month.  As always, the biggest needs are for canned soups and vegetables, canned pasta (ravioli, Beefaroni, etc), canned fruit, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, and anything that can be stored for a long period of time. 

       Donations can be placed in the tubs located next to the welcome table in the narthex – no glass bottles, please!  Please begin or continue to help in this effort to assist local families in need – thank you!
