FAITH AND FILM VIRTUAL VBS
Faith and Film Virtual VBS is HERE!
We are continually reminded how many things have changed in these last few months. We are missing out on seeing our friends and going to movies. We wear masks when we leave the house and our school year will begin with even more changes from our normal lives. These changes can make us feel sad and anxious, especially when we don't know when things will begin to resemble our lives before COVID 19. While we don't have a lot of concrete answers right now, we can rest most assuredly in Hebrews 13:8, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. We have steadfast hope and love through our relationship with Jesus and we can share that hope and love with others. So, as we journey through this season of our "new weird", let's have some fun!
KidMin is following Pastor Mary's lead from her upcoming sermon series, Faith and Film, to offer a virtual vbs. We will be discovering more about our Christian faith by checking out the lessons learned in the films The Sandlot, Zootopia, The Sound of Music, and Up. If your children have not watched these films, it’s no problem, they can still participate. We are hosting a movie night for our whole church family on August 21 (if county regulations allow). Our film for movie night will be Zootopia.
We have missed out on so much, but it has forced us to be more creative in retaining some sense of normalcy in our lives and using secular movies to talk about faith is one of them. Going to the theater may not be possible, but we can enjoy these films in the safety of our own homes, and then see how God uses everything, secular or non-secular, to teach us about our faith.
- Pastor Mary Weaver
So, we invite you to join us for some end of summer fun! KidMin is offering a fun week of Faith and Film Virtual VBS from Monday, Aug 17 - Thursday, Aug 20 with a Movie Night on August 21. Children ages preschool through 6th grade for the 2020-2021 School Year are invited to participate. There is no cost and we will be offering free kits to accompany our VBS with all supplies your kids will need. Please plan to pick up your vbs kit on Sunday, Aug 16 from Concord Trinity UMC from 10:00a.m. – 12:00pm. We are happy to drop off your child’s kit at your home if you are unable to pick up. There will be one video each day with Worship, Bible Story, Prayer, and Craft. We will have one Zoom call each day to talk about what we’ve learned and to show off our crafts. We will have prizes for learning our Bible Verses and for participation. Contact Kim Mertz at with questions.
