Kids, join us for an awesome week of Bible adventures, songs, games, crafts, snacks, friends and fun!
This year's theme is "Maker Fun Factory" where we'll kids will discover they're lovingly crafted by God. On this interactive adventure, curious kids become hands-on inventors and experience God (the ultimate Maker) in new and wildly creative ways!
Kids will discover important truths and dive right into the Bible! At "Maker Fun Factory" VBS, kids learn one important Bible Point each day, and it's reinforced often through Bible adventures, key Bible verses, songs, snacks, and hands-on explorations that help children know they were created by God and built for a purpose!

For centuries, their nation had been in exile. For a generation, they had been without access to their ancestral city. For six days, surrounded by enemies, Israel stood alone…and changed history. This spring marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War and a CBN documentary film commemorates this historical battle with the new movie, “IN OUR HANDS: The Battle for Jerusalem.” On Tuesday, May 23, for a special one-night showing, you can experience the story of Israel's extraordinary battle for survival fifty years ago. In May of 1967, Arab nations joined together with a stated goal to wipe Israel off the map. Less than 20 years after reforming as a nation, Israel was on the verge of extinction. Yet six days in early June 1967 changed history forever. Find movie locations/times at www.inourhands1967.com.
The “Walk for Life" is Saturday, May 13 at 9:00 AM. Pick up a sponsor sheet at the Information Desk, raise donations, and take a walk with friends and family! For more information, go to RWCinfo.org/Walk-for-Life or contact our Church Rep Kris Hanson.
Blood is essential for life: it carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, fights infections, and helps heal wounds. And everyone has this self-generating resource that can be generously given to others—when and where it is needed most.
- Accidents happen 24/7 that put our friends, family, and neighbors in danger
- Blood transfusions save the lives of cardiac patients during surgery
- Premature infants come into the world often needing blood to survive
You or someone you know will need blood.
If not personally in need, at some point we will all know a friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker who needs a blood transfusion. In fact, 1 out of 3 people will need blood in their lifetime. From natural disasters to unforeseen catastrophes, emergency hospital procedures to life-long battles with chronic diseases such as sickle cell, the demand for blood is constant. The supply is not. And since there is no substitute, only volunteer blood donors can roll up their sleeves and save lives.
Memorial Blood Center's bus will be here on Wednesday, April 26 in the afternoon. Please consider giving blood—you can save a life! Sign up at the Care Kiosk in the Foyer at Church or contact Parish Nurse Judy Petersen by email.
You're invited to be part of this global, one-day simulcast that focuses on the power of prayer and learning to study God's Word for yourself. Worship times will be lead by Anthony Edwards.

As the Ebola pandemic was sweeping across West Africa in the spring of 2014, one organization was willing to step up and fully commit its people and resources to provide comfort, compassion, and care to the hurting people of Africa … all in the Name of Jesus. But when the deadly virus infected its own medical personnel, including Dr. Kent Brantly, the epic crisis truly hit home for Samaritan’s Purse and its leader Franklin Graham. FACING DARKNESS tells the incredible true story of how—with only faith, determination, and prayer—the ministry moved mountains … and God performed a miracle!
The movie will be showing for one night only on Thursday, March 30.
