Everyone is gearing up for summer!

It’s that time of year when groups take a break from meeting and we all enjoy being outdoors and spending time at the cottage, beach, or just relaxing!

Living God’s Unshakeable Truth

VBS Crew croppedPictured are some of the 75 children and youth and 22 volunteers who gathered at St. Mark’s July 25-29 for Outrigger Island VBS: Living God’s Unshakeable Truth.  Based on Psalm 86:11, the program took us on a journey to “Outrigger Island” in Hawaii.  Each day, we explored God’s truth at Beach Hut Bible Studies, learned faith-based songs at Music Falls, made awesome crafts at the Crafts Cabana, played energetic games at Recreation Reef, and ate tasty and nutritious treats at the Snack Shack for a week of faith and fun!

Water Project Kenya SchoolAs part of our program, we raised funds for The Water Project.  By Sunday, we had raised over $500 by taking the Water Challenge.  Last year, funds we raised helped drill a borehole well for a school in Kenya!
