Heroes will be on parade! Coming soon!

The logo for our Hero Central VBC

Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) is coming soon!  has arrived!

See our activity from Monday or all of the days we’ve been through so far, of our hanging out at VBC.

Get ready for Hero Central at FUMC where we will…

Discover Our Strength in God!

Each day, during VBC (July 10-14) we will embark on adventures alongside some well-known Bible heroes and discover the qualities that make us truly heroic in God. We will learn about how we have Heart, Courage, Wisdom, Hope, and Power.

Flame, the Red Panda, is our VBC sidekickAlong the way we will also meet some cool characters including Flame, who is a Red Panda.

 

Perhaps you’d like to prepare for VBC?

Start off by listening to our theme song, Leap of Faith.   (To watch this video you may need to go here.)

 

Hero CardsAsk your adults to download the app that goes along with Hero Central. On Monday at VBC we’ll receive a set of five Hero Cards. Scan the day’s Hero Card with the app, and receive a message from Flame! You’ll also be able to play the trivia game to review each day’s Bible story. Or, create your own superhero, for epic adventures around the world of the Hero Central App. Sounds like fun.

 
One other way to get ready is to learn about the service projects we’ve chosen this year for kids to support.

  1. A local project: Donating a box or two of cereal which will be distributed through Ann Arbor’s own Community Action Network. During the school year many families in this community rely on meals provided by the schools. In the summer months, there is no additional assistance to replace the school meals, so a box of cereal can be a big help.
  2. An international project: For the past several years our VBC (and the entire congregation) has yearly supported a project or camp in Liberia during July. We are planning to do so again this year. Below is part of a message from Rev. Nathan in Liberia who will be organizing Camp Bucalaka for youth and children. (Rev. Nathan has organized camps in several different districts or areas of the church there; this will be the first camp for this area.)
    Our next Camp is scheduled for the Gretta Muffer United Methodist School and the Dean Memorial UMC in John Dean Town, the home of our retired bishop, Rev. Dr. John G. Innis. This will be the first time for such an occasion to reach that part of our church. We are looking forward for your prayers and support.

In either case, have your kids bring their donation(s) to the collection at the front of the Sanctuary.

Are you ready to discover your strength in God?

See you soon!
~~ Carol, on behalf of the VBC Team
