We’re gearing up for an incredible week at Maker Fun Factory VBX! Vacation Bible Xtreme is free for kids age 4 through 5th grade and runs July 10-14, 9am-noon. Each day will offer lots of fun with Bible verses, songs, crafts and experiments, snacks, and more! The goal is to teach children about Jesus and how God built them for a purpose. There’s even a mission component to teach children about the value of giving and serving. It all culminates at 10:30am on Sunday the 17th when families watch their kids perform in the VBX mini-musical and enjoy a BBQ together! The fun starts in just three weeks so sign your child up today!
If you are a teen or adult and want to volunteer at VBX, there’s a place for you to serve! Just fill out this form and we’ll find a great role for you.
It’s going to be a fantastic week, so don’t miss it! Sign up your child or step up to serve today!
In Sunday’s message in “Mind Games,” we’re going to talk about our personal value. Where do we find it? Do we get it from other people, or our work, or our appearance? How much of it comes from the God who specifically created us and from Christ who died for us? Don’t miss this Sunday!
Spend a few minutes in worship today! We hope you can join us for the women’s gathering this Friday at 7pm, and we’re looking forward to celebrating Father’s Day with everyone on Sunday!
Did you have to miss women’s retreat this year? Did you go, but now feel like you need a spiritual refill? Don’t miss this special women’s gathering on Friday, June 16th at 7pm!
At this year’s retreat, lives were changed, people were set free, and confidence in Christ was gained. Whether you were able to come to retreat or not, plan to join us for an evening of worship, prayer, testimonies & community. Come hear how God is moving in the lives of some of our Real Life women.
Here’s a message from worship leader Christie Sims about this event:
“Hey ladies, I want to personally invite you to attend the upcoming women’s gathering. I know sometimes it’s a lot of work to make arrangements to attend events like these but I am telling you that you do not want to miss it. The Holy Spirit has things in store for us whenever we come into his presence and this night will be no exception. So whether you are doing great in life and in your faith or you are deeply hurting or struggling we want you to come! The love that was poured out by our Real Life women at retreat is still flowing and we want another opportunity to love on each other, lift each other up and join together as one force to bring change in our lives, our families, our church and our community! I’m looking forward to seeing you there.”
This will be a powerful night and a great kick-off to the next season that God has for us! You won’t want to miss it!
On May 21, Real Life voted to take an opportunity to move into a new, larger church facility on Mill Plain. In the time since that vote, all the necessary paperwork to transfer the title of the new property to Real Life has been completed. We’re now working with a lawyer to submit all the required items to the title company, and we hope to have the title within 30 days.
After that, things get a little more fun and interesting: we’ll be contracting with an architect and designers to help us shape our vision for the new building and develop floor plans and more. This is a great opportunity to maximize space in the new building and to finally create things like a dedicated youth space and fellowship hall that we’ve never had the ability to offer before!
We would love to have you join us in prayer as we move forward in this amazing opportunity:
1) Pray for the sale of the property. We have had positive first steps in our meetings with developers. Pray for bounty, for wise land use on the part of the developers, and for a smooth sale process.
2) Pray for funding for closing costs. We will need about $200,000.
God is leading the way in this adventure and we can’t wait to see how He moves next!
