VBS Pre-Party at the Pool

We at SCC are so excited about the upcoming ROAR VBS July 22-19. We want to kick it off with a splash at Lytle Pool. Meet at the pool for games and snacks in the park before we jump in the pool for more wild games for children and adults! You don’t have to swim. Sitting poolside and visiting is encouraged. Bring a friend! You don’t have to be attending VBS to join us at the Pre-Party. See you there!

Smyser Christian Church Invites Children to Roar VBS: Life is wild, God is good.

A summer kids’ event called Roar VBS will be hosted at Smyser Christian Church from July 22 to July 26. At Roar, kids discover that God is good even when life get wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 8:10pm. Kids at Roar VBS will join a missions effort to provide clean water for an African village.
Roar is for kids from 3 years to 8th Grade and will run from 6pm to 8:30pm each day. For more information, call 217-752-6896. Pre-register your kiddos HERE.
