The Challenge

Monday, June 18, 2018 – Thursday, June 21, 2018

Join us for The Challenge June 18-21st from 5:00-8:00 pm, it is an all-family event you won’t want to miss! We are taking our traditional VBS to the next level by inviting your whole family to an experience that will challenge every member to gear up for life’s big game. We will laugh, learn, and grow in both all-together and age-specific environments.

The Challenge is sports themed, with the idea of Gearing Up for Life’s Big Game. We will talk about Spiritual Gifts and how to identify them in yourself and your family members. We will learn about God’s armor and how it protects us as we go to battle for our families. We will train hard, tackling Spiritual Disciplines, because how we practice determines how we play.

Our keynote speakers during the adult sessions include Pure Heart’s Rachel Kekic, Mike Delster, and Dan Steffen. Special guest speaker Dwayne Pedroza, Professor at Grand Canyon University.

There will be food available for purchase each evening from 5-5:45 outside the Auditorium (optional). We will provide a snack for the kids. Doors open at 5:45 with a pre-show program, and we will formally begin at 6:00.

IMPORTANT: We are encouraging adults (young and old) without kids and all students in 6th-12th grades to volunteer in our children’s ministry or other support areas during The Challenge. Volunteers are free. Everyone (including students that are under 18) that wish to attend rather than serve should be registered as an adult.

Email links to our volunteer applications will be sent after registration. We MUST have complete/approved applications on file for ALL volunteers. The adult volunteer application requires a background and reference checks, so please allow ample time for us to process (it can take up to three weeks).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Steve Schembri at
