Surf’s Up!

Lisa HelmSurf’s Up!

You’re invited to catch this incredible wave at VBS Sunday — and tour our newly expanded Children’s Wing!

“Catch a wave and you’re sitting on top of the world . . .”

— “Catch a Wave,” The Beach Boys

This week, 617 children were sitting on top of the world at VBS 2016: Surf Shack. FUMCFW was transformed into a sea of surfers eager to catch and ride the wave of God’s amazing love as the church opened all our classrooms, Wesley Hall, Leonard Memorial Chapel, the Justin Building, and the Sanctuary to share God’s love with this huge group of lively children. Some highlights of the week were Rev. Tom McDermott rocking out on the electric ukulele in Wesley Hall, Dr. Lamar Smith rapping at the assembly on Thursday, and Dr. Mike Marshall staying ever beach-ready with flip-flops, sunglasses, and a nose covered in zinc oxide for extra sun protection!

This Sunday’s 11:00 am traditional worship service will celebrate the culmination of this amazing week with VBS Celebration Sunday. After the service, 5th Street will be hopping with bounce houses, food, and family fun — plus the opportunity to sign up for our 2016 Fall Children’s Academy classes.

But that’s not all we have going on this coming Sunday. It’s also THE BIG REVEAL of our brand-new Children’s Wing Expansion — beginning just after the 11:00 am worship service and VBS Celebration. I hope everyone makes sure to take a tour of this exciting new area created just for our children — and see for yourself the LEGO Walls, Buddha Boards, GIANT Lite Brite, and the Outreach Wheel, just to name a few of the fantastic additions to our Children’s Area.

See you at the Surf Shack THIS Sunday!
