That's right!  

ROCKY RAILWAY: Jesus' Power Pulls Us Through

 

VBS is scheduled for 6/21-6/25/2021 and we need volunteers!

VBS is going to have to be safer, smaller and as everything else, there will be a few more details than before, so space is limited. 

 

But Chugga Chugga Choo Choo... 

I think We can. I think We can.

Volunteers have the benefit of signing up first, so now's your chance. 

 

After a year like this we need some Encouragement and Community, and we'll be comin’ round the mountain before you know it. So, if you are on board for VBS contact Jen Brooke by Monday May 10th to volunteer and reserve your kids' spots!  Hurry, tickets on this train are in limited supply! ALL ABOARD!

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

I know it's hard to think about school supply shopping, especially right now. I wanted to deliver some good news. There will be a 1st Day of School next year. That is why I am so excited to announce a continued partnership with 1st Day School Supplies!

This year, 1st Day School Supplies is going to help parents and teachers get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the RISK of shopping at Walmart, Target or Staples.

I have personally found 1st Day School Supplies to be convenient, easy and hassle free! Plus, they have guaranteed competitive prices on the highest quality brands including the germ fighting brands like Purell and Clorox. So, with all the uncertainty this summer will bring, why not check school supply shopping off your list. As for me and my family, I will have already purchased my school supplies from the comfort of my home! You can make your purchase right now, get started by clicking the link below:
