Vacation Bible School and Super Six Week, July 28th – August 1st
This summer East Gate VBS children are heading to the International Spy Academy where they will train to become special agents for the one true God! During this exciting and fun-filled new Vacation Bible School program, children will uncover the clues that lead to the one true God who is the Creator of all and who calls people from every tribe and nation to come to know Him through His Son Jesus. The leaders’ mission will be to instill in children an understanding of the God of the Bible they can carry with them for the rest of their lives and share with those around them. Information and registration forms will be available in the narthex.
While the young children are participating in VBS, the youth group will have the opportunity to attend Super Six Week. This week consists of six consecutive evenings of activities. This year the group will participate in a water night at the church, miniature golf, a pool night at the Irelans’, a game night, and, as a new addition to the lineup, a camping trip for the final two days of the week. At each of these events the group will have a fun time of fellowship and learning of God’s word.
Pioneer Club: Where Children Learn About Christ, Have Fun, Make Friends
Pioneer Club is a weekly club for children age four through sixth grade that meets from 6:30-8:00 p.m. each Wednesday from early September through mid-May. Pioneer Club offers children a fun atmosphere in which to learn about God. Each club night children study God’s Word, pray, accomplish hands on projects and crafts, sing, enjoy snacks and make new friends.
Pioneer Club’s primary goal is to introduce children to Jesus Christ, God’s Son and our Savior. At Pioneer Club children are also taught how the Bible applies to everyday life in the home, school and at church (Click here to see a sampling of the topics and lessons covered in Pioneer Club).
Pioneer Club is led by Godly men and women who love children and who are committed to their work as club leaders. Our club year also includes fun outings for children, a Christmas and Easter Program and a year-end awards service. Parents are invited to stay and join us for a club night or to become a volunteer helper. If you would like to learn more about Pioneer Club you can call the church office at 945-5498.
