Calvary's Children, Youth & Family May 28, 2020 Weekly Update
Rocky Railway VBS Saves the Summer!
Parents, send your kids on a mountaintop adventure July 6-10! At Rocky Railway VBS, kids discover Jesus’ power can pull them through life’s ups and downs. Rocky Railway is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. These stations will be accessible through pre-recorded videos found right here on this page. A registration fee of $20 per child or $50 per family provides many of the materials including a T-shirt, music CD and Bible Adventure book. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings®. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!
Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project, through a program called Operation Kid-to-Kid™, that will provide alpacas to families in need in Ecuador, South America.
Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at Rocky Wrap-Up each day via Zoom at 11:40 AM, a daily exploration of why we can trust Jesus!
So mark these dates on your calendar: July 6-10. The fun starts at 9 AM via Zoom and continues via pre-recorded videos of each station accessible on this page. Register your children today for this life-changing adventure!

- Bible Explorers - Wednesdays, Gathering Room West, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
It is never too late to join us!
Do you have a desire to dig deeper into what the Bible teaches? Here is your chance.
We have great discussion and insights as we unearth new treasures every week.
There is fellowship, sharing and caring time, and of course – treats.
We are currently discussing Exodus. It is a great book of stories, history, and lessons about God. It is a critical basis for all that we find in the New Testament and in our Christian beliefs. What must it have been like? Four-hundred years as slaves, spared by the angel of death, chased by one of the best armies in existence, wandering for forty years in the desert, eating bug secretions, striking rocks for water, no maps, and led by a guy with a speech impediment.
- Joyful Bible Belles - first and third Thursdays, 10 am, Gathering Room West. Our Joyful Bible Belles are studying the book of Esther: the story of how one woman made a difference in the lives of many simply by doing what she knew was right. We are on chapters three and four, and it is not too late to join us. Meet in the Gathering Room West. Facilitated by Carole Hildebrand.
