A Summer with God

There are two ways you can choose to do life:
You can simply exist. Or you can really live.
The first way is sort of unavoidable. You breathe without much thought. You eat and drink when you need to. You sleep when you get tired and wake up the next morning.
But the second–really living–is a choice. One that takes faith. It means actually believing what God says is true, so you can make not only good choices, but the best choices. So you can break out of just existing and into a life that is fully alive!
So . . . what does God say?
And what are we supposed to do about it?

That’s what this book is about.
We only get one shot at life. Are you ready to make the most of it? Are you ready to make every second of it count?
Join us this summer as we go beyond existing to fully living.

Parent Cue App (Birth – 12th Grade)
The Parent Cue App is designed to help every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future. It’s great for any parent or grandparent with kids ages birth – 18 years. It’s designed to help parents connect with the heart of their child every week through Bible-based content and practical things to say and do with their child. The content is age-specific, based on the current phase of each child. And – it’s FREE! Download it from your app store today.

Preschool (3 – 5 years)
Preschool Placemats to keep the conversation going every month. Designed to sit on the table all month long, this placemat/play mat gives parents easy access to this month’s key question and bottom line, a place for preschoolers to draw it out, questions to ask each week, and hand motions to the Bible verse. Turn the mat over and discover a fun game or activity to play together. A new mat insert will be sent home the first Sunday of each month.

Elementary (K – 4th)
This summer we are once again offering a 9-week devotional that corresponds with our Sunday theme in FC Kids. The Amped devotional is filled with fascinating stories, interesting tidbits, and practical tips to discover a completely NEW way to live. Jesus wants us to live the fullest life possible. He wants our lives to be totally AMPED. “I have come so that they may have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.” John 10:10b
Kids will have different challenges and rewards each week. Devotionals will be available beginning June 3rd and will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Students (5th – 12th)
What do you think would happen if your student spent 30 minutes with God for 30 days straight? Over and over, we’ve heard from students who said a single month of focused effort changed their relationships with God and others and changed the way they saw themselves.
This summer we are encouraging our students to take the “Thirty” challenge. Thirty makes it easy to help your student take a big step by committing to spend time with God. 30 minutes a day probably doesn’t sound crazy to you, but 30 minutes in the life of a teenager is a LOT of time. So each guide book breaks each day down into 10 minutes of reading, 10 minutes of reflecting, and 10 minutes praying. Thirty is more than a devotional. It’s a challenge we can all do together.


This Summer, during Sunday Morning services, the adults will be discussing the indicators of a healthy church. The church of Biblical times had nothing to do with denominations or buildings.  Inclusion in the church had to do with receiving Jesus as your Savior and Lord. This held individual and group significance. A believer had a personal faith journey to live, a responsibility to encourage fellow believers and a calling to help those who didn’t know Jesus. One key to effectively living a Christian life individually and in community is spending time in the Bible.  What do you think would happen if you spent 30 minutes with God for 30 days straight? This is called the “Thirty Challenge” beginning Sunday, June 3 for adult. A Bible reading plan will be provided with resources that will help you be successful. It’s a challenge that we can all do together.
