In addition to our weekly programming, we have many incredible special event opportunities for you and your family. These events allow you to participate in the action, fellowship and build relationships with other families while hearing about the love and Good News of Jesus Christ.
Family Fun Events
These events are a great way to fit some quality time with your family into your busy schedules while having fun with other families from the church. These events take place either at the church, in the local community or beyond and could range from a movie morning at Westgate Cinema or a Steeler's Event at the church to a hayride and corn maze adventure!
Our Family Fun event for December was Family Ginger Build. Families competed to decorate gingerbread houses and gingerbread cookies representing their families. We also had some awesome games with much laughter. Trophies were given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place families and there were also many fun door prizes. We had 34 families in attendance.
Imagine 160+ kids in 1st through 6th grade flooding the gym and campus while learning sporting skills from a dynamic team of coaches from Unchartered Waters. Sports opportunities include Soccer, Basketball, Self-Defense, Cheerleading, Archery, Art, Scrapbooking, Flag Football, Deck Hockey and Girls Volleyball. The cost is $25 per child and scholarships are available.
Have a child not old enough to participate in Sports Camp? No problem! There is an awesome Vacation Bible School option for children ages 3 through entering Kindergarten. There are fun activities, awesome Bible lessons, worship, games, crafts and more.
Grand Prix Extreme!
Racers start your engines... This is a great event for the entire family and allows children to compete in a pinewood derby. There is a workshop the Friday before to help cut out and build the cars. Children compete in various age categories and are able to win trophies for the fastest cars and the best design.
Kits are available for sale at the church for a minimal cost and must be the kit used in the race with the included wheels.
Resurrection Easter Egg Hunt and Balloon Launch
Imagine over 10,000 eggs covering the hillside waiting to be placed in your child's Easter basket! Families get to share in the fun of worshipping together, hearing the Good News about our Risen Savior, getting free goodies, and then heading outside to grab as many eggs as they can. This is all followed by a balloon launch of hundreds of colorful balloons. It is a fantastic event that you will want to make a part of your Easter Celebration. This event happens the Saturday of Easter Weekend from 11:00am - Noon. Please come early as the sanctuary tends to fill quickly.
