This summer, from July 30 through August 4, The Cove youth group is taking a trip to San Francisco! There will be five students and two leaders going on the trip, and they will be working with the Center for Student Missions to serve at various ministry sites around the Bay Area. As part of their trip, The Cove will also have the opportunity to experience some of the culture of the Bay Area, as well. The youth leaders would like to ask everyone to please pray for a safe trip, and to pray that that the experience may be formative and enriching for the students. Donations of any amount or kind are also gladly appreciated!
Also, please look forward to a recount of the trip and all the experiences had therein the Sunday following The Cove’s return!
Our extra special and super fun day camp for children, Village Kids Camp, is coming up in less than two weeks! And registration is still available! Click here for more information.
The first phase of Ben Tucker’s Eagle Project is now completed. The church’s playground area has been cleaned up and updated and is now usable again! Be sure to go check it out this Sunday!
The next phase of Ben’s project, which will include installing picnic tables and a planter of flowers in the area directly outside the Fireside Room, will commence in August. Ben is still welcoming donations and volunteers for the second phase, so please let him know if you would like to contribute.
Next Sunday, June 25, we will have a special recognition for graduating high school seniors during service. Join us in showing support and offering prayer for our graduating seniors as they begin the next chapter in their lives.
Village’s very own Ben Tucker is revving up to fulfill his last requirements for earning the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. One of his final requirements is to plan, organize, and execute a community service project. For his project, Ben has chosen to redo Village’s playground and sandbox area so that it looks nicer and is usable for the Kids Camp over the summer, as well as adding plants and a picnic area directly outside the fireside room for people to use on Sunday mornings.
Ben would also like to point out that part of the process of completing his Eagle Project also includes taking donations for the project itself to get done. Ben is aiming to have the first phase of the project started on the weekend of June 16 and 17, and any donations of supplies, materials, or funds that anyone is willing to give would be greatly appreciated. If donating supplies or materials, please check with Ben beforehand to see what is still needed. If writing a check, it should be made out to Village Covenant Church and have it noted in the memo section that they are for Ben’s Eagle Project.
