Vacation Bible School – Scuba

We had a great time at VBS this month, partnering with St. Luke’s. Over 40 kids joined us for a week of diving into friendship with God. Each day we met a new Bible buddy who helped us to learn about what friendship with God means. Over the 5 days we learned about how God is friend who’s real, God is a friend who loves, God is a friend we can trust, God is a friend forever, and God is a friend for everyone. Through Bible stories, games, skits, and other activities kids encountered God and saw how his never-ending love makes him a true friend to all of us. Special thanks to the volunteers who made this event possible.

Summer Youth Events

We’ve had an awesome start to our youth events this summer with a couple enjoyable camp fires and a fun night of bowling. It’s been great to gather for s’mores, games, and devotions and we look forward to more gatherings throughout the summer. As we’ve gathered around a fire, it’s been fun to share about how fire is brought up throughout God’s word, sometimes for destruction and sometimes for refinement. In each case it’s a great reminder of how God is with us in our lives, guiding us through troubles and building us up in our faith. If you have youth (6th -12th grade) interested in joining us for any events this summer, be sure to join our “Immanuel Youth” group through the Church Center app.
