Baby bottle campaign, grads, spa night, VBS + faithfulness

This Sunday, we’ll praise God for all of our teens who are serving in a variety of ways, learning to make the gospel practical and live their faith! We’ll recognize in particular those who provided childcare for Life Groups this whole year and enabled those groups to succeed.

Kingdom Calling alert: Baby bottle campaign for Mosaic VA – May 20-June 17
For this month between Mother’s and Father’s Day, we have a unique opportunity to join with our local crisis pregnancy center, Mosaic VA in Lansdowne, and help raise awareness and support for their ministry to expectant moms, babies, and families in our community. Interested?

This is a great team project and visual for kids, families, Life Groups!
