Upcoming Opportunities at FRC

Vacation Bible School: Monumental: Celebrating God's Greatness!

Vacation Bible School 2022: Monumental: Celebrating God’s Greatness. Like most churches, we put on a VBS every summer, usually the week following Cherry Fest. This year it is a 3-day event from July 12th-July 14th. Vacation Bible School is a super-fun, wildly engaging event centered around the good news of the Gospel.  We will follow the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis to ground us in the greatness of God’s love, presence, and strength.  Kids will begin each day at a Worship rally with music and Bible skits.  From there, kids will make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about a local mission. VBS is an incredible and faith-filled experience for kids all throughout our community.  Be sure to invite your friends.

VBS requires a lot of planning and coordination. Want to get involved? There are a variety of ways! We need volunteers to serve in many capacities: Crew Leaders, snack servers, drama team, game helpers, and more! Sign up in the Lobby on Sundays before and following service OR sign up online. 

Children entering Kindergarten – 5th grade in the Fall of 2023 are invited to register for a free week of learning.

If you have a heart or calling toward VBS, contact Andrea Poppleton. 
To register your children for VBS head here.

Recent & Past Opportunities at FRC

Kingdom Journey: Pilgrim

We’re all seeking a spirituality that draws us closer to God and brings life to the world around us.  This will not happen by chance but instead requires intentional openness to the Spirit’s influence.  We hope you will take a step of faith and enter into deliberate discipleship through the Kingdom Journey.  In this process, we have identified three essential segments that people can journey through to live a fully human life.  

The first stage we have identified is Pilgrim – Path To Personal Transformation.  In this stage, we offer a weekend retreat that leads into a 22-week journey that cultivates deep learning, rich practices, and intentional reflection with a Guide. 

 If interested in taking part of the next Kingdom Journey Pilgrim, Contact Drew Peterson.

A Journey to the Lord's Table

When we celebrate Communion at Faith Reformed Church, the Lord’s Table is open to children. We believe that a Table is a place where children can come to know and experience the grace of God. They may not have committed their lives to Christ just yet, but the Lord’s Supper ushers them closer to Christ as they receive His grace. This is a class that reflects these beliefs, as families may discover and partake in the communion experience together. We believe that participation at the Lord’s Table at an early age may have a significant impact on the faith development of our children, who learn most easily through the tangible: touch, taste, sight, sound, smell, and repetition. Another class will be offered beginning on April 24th. It will be a four-session class, ending on May 15th. Mark your calendars now if you plan to attend and contact Andrea Poppleton.

IF Gathering: 2022

IF Gathering 2022. A two-day event where women gather together via live-stream, and in-person at churches across the globe to get equipped, and discover their next steps in their calling to “go and make disciples”.
