Student Ministry This Week


VSM Midweek Squad Games, 6:30-7:30 PM

This Wednesday night is a Squad Games Night. This night will be a true test of your squad's might and intelligence. We'll have a great time with a lot of laughs. There's a good chance that we will even witness a battle between a minotaur riding a segway and Abraham Lincoln holding a battle axe. You just never know.

VSM Christmas Potluck, December 3rd, 5:00 PM

SAVE THE DATE! On Sunday, December 3rd, we will have our second annual VSM Christmas Potluck. We'd love for all of our students and their families to join us for a fun night of eating together and celebrating what God has done in our student ministry this year. We would like for you to RSVP for the event and let us know how many adults, students, and younger children will be attending with you. We'll be sending out an Evite this week to make RSVPs as easy as possible. As with all great potlucks, we'll ask that you just bring a dish to share. We really hope everyone can attend this special event!
