We thank God for leading almost 80 kids and volunteers from 10 local churches down the “Resurrection Road” at a community Vacation Bible School during Spring Break, March 26-28. Thank you for your prayers and participation! Samuel Abney, web contractor for the JC Ministerial Alliance, has produced a VBS highlights video. We hope you enjoy it.

Resurrection Road VBS
Our church will host another community VBS during Johnston City’s Spring Break, which happens to be Holy Week. The activities will begin with supper at 5:30 and sessions from 6:00-8:30. The theme of the lessons, “Resurrection Road,” will lead students from the Last Supper to the Cross and Empty Tomb. Bus transportation will be available. Another volunteer meeting will be held Thursday, March 15, 7:00 pm in the fellowship hall.
Our Wednesday night student ministry currently uses a curriculum series called “What We Believe.”
Our typical schedule looks like this. We serve supper at 6:30 and begin activities at 7:00. The first thing on the agenda is age-appropriate worship followed by a “master teacher” who briefly introduces the lesson in a fun way each week. Students then divide into school-grade-based groups. First to exit, Pre-K-Grade 2 (Jefferson School students in JC) follow their teacher Carolyn Taylor to a well-equipped classroom on our lower level. Lincoln School students (grades 3-4) are lead by Marta Phillips to a classroom upstairs in our youth center. Washington Middle School students (grades 5-6) divide up by gender. Girls go with Janice Legendre and boys follow teacher Roger Legendre and his helpers. Teens (7th grade-high school) meet with Pastor Keith and his wife Sarah. Adults gather in the library with teacher Doug Hancock. There’s something for everyone. Come join us Wednesday night.
