"But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us." --- 2 Corinthians 4:7
Once a year, in the spring, the youth of our church offer a worship service to share what they have learned as well as to demonstrate their growth in leadership. It is a special Sunday to praise God for the youth of our church as well as for their dedicated teachers. The joy and enthusiasm of their faith journey gives us a fuller sense of who we are as followers of Christ.
Camps and Conferences
Gwinwood Conference Center provides a summer program of outdoor ministries to different age levels. The summer schedule of camps is available on the Northwest Regional website: www.disciplesnw.org or see 'Upcoming Events' in our Calendar Section for the current camp dates.
Each summer we offer a Camp Sunday to celebrate our church camp experiences as well as to remember experiences of the past and how those experiences have enriched our faith journey. We dress for camp on that Sunday and come with an expectation that worship will be different.
There are also Regional winter retreats for middle school and high school youth. (see the regional website, www.disciplesnw.org, for dates and locations.)
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Vacation Bible School is offered each summer for young children ages 5 to kids entering grade six in the fall. This is a week long program, Monday through Friday from 9 am to noon which includes worship, lessons, arts and crafts, music and games. It also includes a light meal and snacks.
