VBS, the summer event where parents bring their children to the church and drop them off for other people to watch through the morning. Sometimes I think thats the only way we think about it. It's soooooo much more!
First and foremost, VBS is and opportunity to share Jesus and the truth in His Word, with the community. Also, it's probably the event that gets the most people (all ages) from our congregation involved in any one activity. This creates awesome opportunity to get to know one another better. It also gives opportunity to people to discover and develop their talents. It places adults and youth side by side, working with a common goal. It reinforces the family structure within the body of Christ. Seeds are planted, cultivated and in some instances harvested. What a great event.
I want to say in advance, to those of you who will be helping this year, THANK YOU! If your not helping, and would like to help, it's not too late, please give me a call. If you have children, live in the area, and would like to bring them, please do.
VBS is for ages preschool through 6th grades. The dates are June 22 - 26, and the time each morning is from 9:00 to Noon. Please join me in praying that all who are involved will be blessed.

The dates for the Centurian Cycling Club ride on the Mickelson Trail have been set for August 28th - 30th. Please plan to join us on that beautiful ride down the Mickelson Trail through the middle of the Black Hills in SD. It's a great trip for families. I'll be posting more info as I get it.

To prepare for the Mickelson trail bicycle ride this fall, we invite you to come and join us as we ride with the wind on Wednesday evenings in the Centurian Cycling Club here at WestWay. We meet at the church and leave on a ride which ever way the wind is blowing. At the end of the ride, we have snacks and a bible lesson. Then we load the bikes on a trailer, hop in the vans and head back to the church to go home. It's a great time of fellowship. A van with a trailer will follow the group incase there are break downs with the bikes or just physical energy so you can be picked up when needed. Please plan to join us.
