note this year's Format Change
In response to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 crisis, the format for Summer Celebration 2020 has been altered. Note that while this year's VBS will NOT be a drop-off event, we have planned a fun-filled week for kids and families that includes praying, playing, and serving in amazing new ways! The details are below...
Theme: God is Bigger
Last fall we selected the theme for Summer Celebration 2020 -- “God is BIGGER!” At that time, Rachel was not entirely sure if it was the right theme, but God knew exactly what He was doing. Months later we find ourselves facing a global pandemic, and we see clearly that the most timely and appropriate theme for Summer Celebration 2020 is “God is BIGGER!”
The Revised Format
Summer Celebration 2020 will still occur the week of July 6-10, and will follow a hybrid virtual/live programming model.
- Virtual Experience: Worship, Bible teaching, crazy games, and more will be accessed virtually from home. Feel free to login as a family and invite friends to join in the fun!
- BIG BOX: Registered families will receive a box filled with a journal, games, and more “best of Summer Celebration” activities to enhance and reinforce the virtual experience.
- At Home SERVE Projects: Families may elect to participate in a service project. We will supply the materials, and you can complete the service project at home with your family, with other Summer Celebration buddies, or with friends from your neighborhood. Return finished projects to the church, and we will deliver them to our Mission Partners.
In addition to these opportunities to celebrate summer with MDPC, we also hope to offer a few Pop-Up PLAY Parties during the week of July 6-10 as well as a Family Fun Night on the evening of Thursday, July 9, at MDPC. Note that these events are tentative pending the safety of the community and our ability to comply with health-related protocols set forth by state and local authorities.
Details on BIG BOX pickup, At Home SERVE Projects, and additional opportunities during the Summer Celebration week will be forthcoming. Questions? Contact staff via the email below:
