We have two opportunities to give too... 1. You can help by bringing items for the summer fun boxes! Items could be jump ropes, bubbles, side walk chalk, coloring books, etc... 2.

Summer Vista Kids Small Group Leaders!

We only have one teacher confirmed out of the 6 teachers we are in need of for Summer Sunday School. Do you know the difference ten to twelve hours in the summer can make in a child's life? As a Summer Vista Kid Small Group Leader/Sunday School Teacher, you will work with another adult with provided materials and curriculum to guide our kids through fun activities, learning experiences, and grow closer to God and others!

Talk to one of our current Vista Kids Learning Hours/Children's Church teachers about their experience as a Sunday Morning volunteer and inquire with Lisa about upcoming summer teaching/volunteer opportunities!

Gifts to God- Vista Kids Offering

We are so proud of our Vista Kids for working so hard to donate two mosquito nets through Imagine No Malaria for April's Gifts to God!

If you haven't met our May mascot yet, be on the look out for Al Alpaca tomorrow! Rumor has it, he may be playing on the playground!

For the month of May, the kids have started raising funds to buy an Alpaca through Heifer International to bless a family living in the Andean Basin in South America. We have big dreams of purchasing a llama or alpaca at $150, but we know that God can work with pennies found in couch cushions and quarters on the sidewalk! I can't wait to see what our kids and God can do!

Children's Church Sunday, May 8th: Radical Sayings of Jesus

Radical Sayings of Jesus: Deny Yourself and Follow Me: Mark 8:34-38 Our Vista Kids followed the leader as they read about the instructions Jesus gave to give up worldly wants and want for what Jesus can provide. As our Vista Kids worshiped, they created crosses to take home and also had a little time to make a surprise for their mom's who they love "bunches!"

Three Trees Thank You!

May 1st was so very special as our children led an amazing worship service through song, drama, prayer, and liturgy! Thank you kids for the time, energy, effort and heart you put into guiding worship! Thank you parents for your support and thank you to our amazing Three Trees directors Allison D'Auteuil, Rene Beasley, and Mary Beth Hardesty Crouch and fantastic set designer Nichole Petersen!
