Summer has been in full swing!

We're so excited to report back on this year's summer events! We've been praying for our children and students who participated in VBS here at home and for those who have been away at summer camp in the last few weeks. We have so much to celebrate with you!
We'll be sending an age-graded e-mail to you every other Wednesday, so keep an eye out for more updates and stay In the Loop!
Our 75+ VBS kids & 43 volunteers had such a great time on the farm at HayDay VBS, learning all about the deep and boundless love and friendship found in Jesus! Thanks for joining us at VBS 2022 last month. > All VBS photos are available on our church Facebook page.
Summer Camp (June 24 - June 27):
  • 12 kids & 2 leaders traveled to camp at Lake Forest Ranch last week! They had fun outdoors taking part in horseback riding, playing in the water, practicing archery, and so much more! They battled the heat with snow-cones, swimming in the pool, and learning about Jesus during group times and worship sessions!
  • Thanks to Sharmin Culwell, Elizabeth Dollar, Steve Sanders, & Eric Smith for investing in our children at Lake Forest Ranch!
Summer Camp (June 27 - July 1):
  • 22 students & 4 leaders traveled with us to Fuge Camp at Panama City Beach, representing half a dozen schools across the Gulf Coast! From field days to "silent" discos to worship & Bible study together, our students grew closer to Christ and to each other this summer.
  • Thanks to Lindsey Cameron, Jameson Mitchell, Laura Renick, and Chris Weir for investing in our students at Fuge! 
Four of our FBG students gathered with more than 100 students from all over the state at William Carey University for Heartsong Worship Arts Camp late last month! Campbell, Leanna, Esther, and Jackson went with Pastor Gavin for several days of learning how to lead in worship, use their musical gifts and talents, and so much more all for the glory of Jesus. 

We're looking forward to bringing a group back for next year, so if you have a musical child, feel free to schedule Heartsong into your Summer '23 plans!
