Mission Project 2017: This year at Maker Fun Factory Vacation Bible School we will be teaming up with the Paraguay Medical Mission Trip from St. Matthew UMC.  For over 20 years, a team of doctors, dentists, pharmacist, nurses and many more head to Paraguay for 1 week to serve the people in the community.  Along with meeting their medical needs, the team holds church services in the community, prays with the people as they are being treated, holds children's gathering and so much more!  On each designated day of VBS, we encourage our kids and leaders to bring the below requested items to be donated.  We will also be taking an offering every day  of VBS where 100% of the proceeds received will be donated to more supplies and children's items for the mission trip. 

 

         Monday: Infant vitamin drops, Children's Ibuprofen liquid

         Tuesday:  Tylenol chewables & infant Tylenol drops

         Wednesday: Flip flops (new, child size) and small bouncy balls

         Thursday:  Children's Multi- Vitamins & prenatal vitamins

         Friday: Triple antibiotic ointment and hydrocortisone cream 

 

*Any items can be donated on any of the days, not just the specified days!

  

Also, don't miss out on our Closing Celebration on Friday, June 9 at 6:00 pm.  Families are invited to join our kids to hear all about their week and what they learned at Maker Fun Factory VBS. Food & carnival will be following the program.

What is MEGA Sports Camp?
It's a week that will make your kids better athletes and FOLLOWERS OF JESUS!  At registration they'll pick basketball, cheerleading or life skills for the week.  Through Rally Time, sports session, huddle time, halftime snacks and closing rally, our kids will be immersed in the life-changing message of the Gospel.  They will also learn through the Scriptures of the Mega themes for each day.  Through thrilling Bible stories and real life sports stories, kids will leave MEGA Sports Camp with a new sense of sportsmanship and a whole new look on the Gospel! Our scripture verse that we will learn, memorize and live out is, "In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." Romans 8:37

Day 2:  I can conquer the day when I LISTEN TO LEADERS! (David is chosen by God)

 

Day 3: I can conquer the day when I REMEMBER TO RECHARGE! (David writes to recharge)

 

Day 4: I can conquer the day when I COMPETE WITH COURAGE! (David conquers Goliath)
