Calling All Captains & Crew! — Adults of all ages can come to experience the ever-flowing, never-ending love of God July 15-19, as Volunteer SCUBA Vacation Bible School & Daycamp.  An amazing amount of children registered means the congregation has a great opportunity to show radical hospitality to our young guests! 
Here are your opportunities to "be the church":

  • Check out the roles as Captains and Crew for games, snacks, or bible stories;
    or just help kids coming and going! Captains & Crew
  •  Be a "Supply Chief" by sending donated items from our VBS Amazon Wishlist.
  •  You can also Sponsor the Voyage for a child with a "campership" contribution.
    Send a check or make an online gift with "VBS Campership" as the memo.
