 Shipwrecked VBS 2018

 

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

 

Children are always a blessing! They are filled with such joy and laughter. They are so fragile from the beginning, motivating us to protect them and nurture them.

These wonderful little ones are beautiful, full of happiness, and are a radiant bright light in this world.  No matter where you are in the world, or what your background is, children are a gift from God.

Children remind us to live more, trust more, laugh more, and seek the love of our Heavenly Father more. God calls us His children, because the love of a child is so precious and fragile, that we should protect it and defend it.

 

We had the opportunity to host over 100 children during our VBS week.  What an amazing opportunity to plant and nurture God's seeds.  

 

So many thanks go out to everyone who helped make this happen.  VBS could not have been the experience it was without all of the donations of supplies and money to purchase supplies or volunteers who so generously gave of their time to decorate, lead stations, man the check in/out tables, "un" decorate and many other important tasks. 

A big thank you to all of the Youth who spent their week here leading crews!  You are all so important and the children are greatly blessed because of your generosity! 

Another big Thank you to the "set builders"  Not only did you spend a huge amount of time building and creating our Sanctuary "Island", but you spend a huge amount of time decorating two of the preschool Stations!  

Everything looked so wonderful, it really did feel like stepping into an Island all week.  

 

Thank you Ortega United Methodist Church and all of God's people!

VPK-5TH GRADE

Ortega Children's Worship
(VPK - 5th grade)

 

Our Sunday School program is designed to provoke discovery and instill three basic truths into the hearts of children, as modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52. 

                       

          1. I can trust God no matter what.

                       

          2. I need to make the wise choice.  How does God's Word fit into my life?

                       

          3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.  Just one way to build friendships that will last.

 

Where:  The Fellowship Hall

  

Your child may be checked in and dropped off at the Fellowship Hall, or they may be checked in and brought to the Sanctuary for our Children's Moment.  After the Children's Moment they will head over to the Fellowship Hall for their own worship time!

 

Pick up:  The Fellowship Hall

 

The Bible should never be boring.   We will use God's own words, along with music, games and hands on activities to show them worship can be loud and messy, and that learning about God's love can be exciting and fun!

 

Babies-4 years old

 

Babies-4 Years Old*

 

We want to help you provide your children with their first impression of their loving heavenly Father.  We will strive to instill three basic truths into the hearts of all children in our care:

       

          1.  God made Me!

 

          2.  God loves Me!

 

          3. Jesus wants to be my friend forever!

 

Babies

 

Where:  Drop off and pick-up in Room 17

Babies can be checked in at a child check in station.  You will receive a sticker to place on your child and one for you to keep.  Please keep your sticker for pick-up.

We will work hard to ensure the envoronment is clean and that every child experiences genuine nurture and love.

 

Toddlers

 

Where:  Drop off and pick-up in Room 21A

Toddlers can be checked in at a child check in station.  You will receive a sticker to place on your child and another one for you to keep.  Please keep your sticker for pick-up.

We will hope your children will feel God's love through nurturing adults, Bible stories, music and games.  

 

3's and 4's*

 

Where:   Drop off and pick-up in Room 19 

3's and 4's can be checked in at a child check in station.  You will receive a sticker to place on your child and another one for you to keep.  Please keep your sticker for pick-up.

We look forward to helping your children learn more about God's love.  This is a very busy stage of life and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways.  We are ready for them

and have many hands on activities to help them grow.  Each week they will hear one of God's stories and have an activity to keep their hands and minds busy.  We hope they will have fun

learning about the amazing things God has done for them.
