WEDNESDAY, JULY 20  •  5:30-8:30

Our last Pool party of the summer will be epic! 

We’ll be heading way out in the country to the Frantz home at 725 Downie Rd
Hickman , CA 95323 for 3 hours of food and fun.  You can swim in the pool or play in the pond with kayaks and paddle boards.  It will be the perfect place to try something new or show us your skills.

Since this location is longer drive than usual, we are starting early and having hot dogs and chips along with the usual dessert.

Grab some friends to carpool and come join us!




Beach Bums is our version of summer camp for students entering 7th or 8th grade and it’s an awesome trip that you won’t want to miss! It’s basically 5 days of hanging out in southern California with a bunch of friends and some great leaders. The trip is designed to help build relationships with other kids in the youth group, the leaders, and most importantly – with God.

This year we will be going to Santa Monica Beach, having fun at Knott’s Berry Farm, testing our courage at Magic Mountain, and other fun stuff.  We will also spend time each day learning about who God is and how to intentionally become more and more like Christ.  We hope you can join us, just don’t wait too long to sign up.

Splash takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30. These are FREE events that include a dessert.

Swimsuits need to be modest with no stomach showing for the girls (two-piece suits that cover are okay). If you have any questions call Vance at the church (634-4935) or his cell phone (988-4475)

WEDNESDAY, JULY 6  •  6:30-8:30  •  MVC FIELD

Are you ready for a wild and crazy night of some really gross games involving food and getting really messy? I hope so, because That’s Disgusting is for you! It is a free event that is just for fun and it is a great opportunity to bring friends.

If you come, you gotta play, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting really messy and possibly stained. You will also be wet, so you may want to bring a towel and wear an old swimsuit with a t-shirt. Girls, if you wear a swimsuit you will need to wear shorts over it. Parents may also want something to cover the car seats for the trip home.


WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15 • 6:30-8:30

What better way to meet the new kids and get to know them than having a party!  Anyone entering 7th or 8th grade is invited to come and have fun together as we welcome the new 7th graders.

It’s FREE and includes ice cream sundaes!

Please wear your swimsuit so you won’t need to change.

Girls please wear a modest swimsuit that covers your body appropriately and does not show your stomach.

Drop off and pick up at the Humphreys’ home: 2340 El Camino Dr
