FAMILY VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL –  THIS WEEK
Every day, our kids are bombarded with the message that the Bible isn’t the true Word of God, that it can’t be trusted to tell us the truth about the past or, more importantly, about how we can receive the gift of eternal life. With the Operation Arctic VBS 2017 theme, your kids will warm up to the Word as they explore the coolest Book on the planet and discover how we can know for sure that the Bible is God’s written word to us!

CHURCH PICNIC
Everyone is invited to our church picnic on Saturday, July 29 at the Bethel Campus. Join us for a time of friendly competition, warm fellowship, and good food. The action begins at 3pm. Food and Horseshoe Competition signups are on the table in the lobby.
