Son Force Kids

We kicked off our Vacation Bible School yesterday. I have never seen such an incredible work of creativity for a children's ministry in my life. Our volunteers hit it out of the park. We had over two hundred kids who heard about the love of Jesus. We had tons of moms and dads that were blown away by all of the hard work done by Maxine and her staff. Way to go!

One of the new things we did this year was provide an adults only cafe in our Common Ground. Coffee, specialty drinks, and a variety of finger foods were provided free of charge for parents (mostly moms) to hang out and build some community.

I am reminded once again of how awesome it is to work at Charter Oak Church. I have never been a part of a church whose total focus, energy, and passion is on pointing people to Jesus like it is here!

What I love about Charter Oak is that Charter Oak loves kids and wants them to have a relationship with Jesus in such a way that it is a priority for the church.

I heard a comment today that was really great - a boy who has never been to our church before and is attending VBS this week told his mom today that he can't wait until next year! Now that is building excitement toward Jesus.

Tom, I heard your daughter had a pretty incredible experience at our student's Deep Week today. I love hearing about kids and students who get it. It's why we do what we do.
