Summer 2017

6/21 (Wednesday) First pool party of the summer!  6:30-8:30 pm at the home of Ken and Donna Johnson: 1705 Cavelletti Court, VB 23454. Each Wednesday during the summer we will have pool parties from 6:30-8:30 pm. Dinner provided as usual. Parents are welcome to join us for any part of the pool party as well.

6/22-24 (Thurs-Sat) Middle School "Mission" Trip to Restoration Farm to serve with Jeff and Cookie Liverman.  While this is not a full-blown mission trip, the emphasis will be on preparing for missions.  We will do work projects on the farm (spreading mulch, gardening, building a wooden bench, etc.), spend time in worship and Bible study, and talk about global missions with the Livermans and some other missionaries who are visitng the farm.  Jeff and Cookie serve with FRONTIERS and have decades of global missions experience.  This trip will be designed to help students consider how they can be part of God's plan to bring people from all nations to Himself.

Boys will camp out and girls will sleep at a nearby church.  If you have a tent we could use, please let Curt know.

We will meet at VBCC at 9 am on Thursday, 6/22, depart by 9:30 am, and return around 4 pm on Saturday, 6/24.

Sign your child up HERE. Registration fee is $20 plus we are asking each student to bring $20 to cover 2 fast food meals going there and back. You can pay the $20 fee with cash or check payable to "VBCC" or pay online HERE.  We'll be sending a follow-up email with packing list, which leaders are going, schedule, and transportation details.

6/28 (Wednesday) We will go to the bay instead of doing a pool party.  This is a family-friendly event, so bring the whole crew.  It's also fine to drop your child off.  Come to the beach access at the intersection of Red Tide Rd. and Ocean Shore Ave. There is plenty of public parking along Ocean Shore Ave. We'll go from 6:30-8:30 as usual.  Dinner will be fried chicken, watermelon, and chips. If you are bringing extra family members, it would be great if you could also bring some snacks, just to make sure we have enough food for everyone.  Bring a water bottle, beach chair, towel, and beach games if you have them - can jam, frisbees, footballs, Kadima paddles, etc.

7/2 (Sunday) During the second hour (10:30-11:45), the Youth will put on SPLASH in the Youth Lounge.  We will do worship and a lesson in the Youth Lounge, then go to the gym for games.  During our normal Sunday School hour we will practice for this event.

7/4 (Tuesday) Independence Day

We'll have about 60 people, so please bring a side or dessert to share. Note: We want to invite all rising 6th graders and their families (including younger siblings) to join us for this important night as we welcome them to the Youth Group. This is a family event: parents and younger siblings of current youth are also invited as we close out the summer and anticipate the coming school year.

8/27 (Sunday) Transition Sunday: On this Sunday we welcome rising 6th graders to move up from the Children's Ministry to officially join the Youth Group! This is a Family Worship Service, so there is no Sunday morning Youth Group - everyone attends worship services. During the 10:30 am worship service, we will ask rising 6th graders and their families to come up front so that our congregation can celebrate this important transition with them.

8/30 (Wednesday) No Youth Group - we want to give families and leaders a week off as we gear up for the Fall. VBCPS teachers are in training/preparation for students this week as well.
