Church gatherings are a lot like family gatherings. Yep, they can be pretty awkward…you can be surrounded by a hundred people, and feel completely alone. I’m pretty sure Christian comedians like John Crist get two-thirds of their material from these types of events. But it's really not THAT bad...think of it like an old-fashioned family reunion, only you’re not actually related to crazy Uncle Keith! (See, it’s already looking up!)
So here’s how you can participate in our church-wide, SUPER FUN, VBS Family Fun Day…
Just show up! June 24th!
9:30-10:30 Activity Stations
10:30-11:15 Worship Service
6:30-8:30 Shipwreck Cove & Baptisms (FREE Admission)
Enjoy time with your kids and church family!
Yes, I fully understand they can be annoying at times (both kids and church family...HA!), but this day is all about unity, fun, and fellowship! Put on a smile, play with your kids, talk to someone you don’t know…it’ll be great! You might even make a new friend!
Dress for mess!
No Sunday best! In fact, wear your lawn mowing clothes. You might get wet. You WILL get sweaty. Sunscreen and sandals, t-shirts and shorts - all a good idea!
Canopy tents, camping chairs, corn hole…cookies!
Anything you would pack for a tailgate, also a good idea. For lunch, we’re providing meat and buns. Please bring a side and drinks to share! (Keep it simple - chips, potato salad, beans, drinks, etc.) If you have a canopy tent, arrive early and we’ll have a designated area to set those up. This will help provide shade for the worship service and picnic. Share your shade! Invite those without tents to sit with you!
There will be a welcome tent set up in front of the Activity Center. Check-in at the tent when you arrive.
I think that just about covers it. If you don’t have kids, consider volunteering…or join us at 10:30 for the worship service…or just show up for free food (hey, there's nothing wrong with that)! Lots of options, so no excuses for not coming!
Let’s not settle for being a community of believers. Let’s be a FAMILY of believers. We’re better together!
I can’t wait to see you at our family gathering!
