VBS 2018 - ROME - "Paul and the Underground Church"
July 18th - July 19th, 2018
Experience the thrill of visiting ancient Rome and meet Missionary, Paul, in his prison cell! We're going to transport to ancient times where we'll meet early Christians hiding in caves, shopping at a Roman marketplace, and racing chariots!
This Three day Vacation Bible School (VBS) spotlights the "heart work" of Paul and the Underground Church where kids have the opportunity to learn that God's love is a gift that changes us and is always with us.
Our prayer at MVC is that Kids would encounter Jesus as their Savior and know that the Good News is is worth sharing with others.
Note for MVCC Families:
If your child attends MVCC, they will be participating in VBS as part of their normal curriculum on the days that they are enrolled at no additional cost. However, if you would like your child to participate in VBS on a day that they are NOT enrolled at MVCC, they may do so for $5/ day. Please choose the appropriate enrollment option.

Jr. High Summer Camp 2018 - Beach Bums

Beach Bums is our version of summer camp and it’s an awesome trip that you won’t want to miss! It’s basically five days of hanging out in southern California with a bunch of friends and some great leaders. The trip is designed to help build relationships with other kids in the youth group, the leaders, and most importantly - with God.
On this trip we will be learning about the kind of person God wants us to be and what we can do to help make that happen.
We will also be having plenty of fun as we go to Santa Monica Beach, hang out at Disneyland, ride the awesome rides at Magic Mountain, and do lots of other fun stuff.

What are Tru Clubs?
Tru Clubs are a part of ROOTS Children’s Ministry at Monte Vista Chapel. ROOTS is committed to creating environments that nurture each child’s journey in learning about God and following Jesus. We value teaching God’s Word to plainly display God’s grand narrative--with Jesus being the central character--while inviting each of us to participate in the continuation of God’s story today. In addition to reading and learning from the Bible, we also believe that growing relationships with other Christ followers provides us with opportunities to grow closer to God. It is our hope that children who participate in Tru Clubs would walk away knowing that they are known and deeply loved by God.
What Does a Tru Club Night Look Like?
Worship . Scripture . Discipleship . Play
Each club level offers a time of worship, Bible lesson, a time of reflection and guided discussion, plus a game or craft time. There will also be a monthly “Remember Verse” that each club will learn together which encompasses that month’s theme. Themes include: Storytelling, Identity, Faith Community, Serving, stepping outside of your Comfort Zones, Responsibility, Love & Respect for God and Others, Knowing God, Graceful Course Correction, and Modeling Jesus.
Parents will also receive a monthly resource called “Homefront,” which includes a preview of what scriptures your children will be exploring and how you can partner with MVC and prepare your child ahead for what they will be learning in their Tru Club. This is NOT a requirement for your child to participate; it is simply a resource to help you come alongside your child!
$10 for the first child in your family, or $15 for two or more!
