Summer Bible Club – “God is for me”


Summer Bible Club is back at Philpott Church this summer!

Kids today need to know that Someone will always love them and be for them, no matter what!  That someone is God Himself when we belong to His family - and is the theme of Summer Bible Club 2018!

What better character to illustrate these truths than Joseph! As each circumstance of his life unfolds in the Bible, we see Joseph never losing faith in God and God being “there” for him every step of the way!    Each part of the program…music, crafts, Bible verses, games… will help to reinforce these truths so that each child will understand how they can know that “God is for them!”

Philpott Memorial Church is partnering with BCM International for this club.

All kids from SK – Gr 6 are welcome.  Register NOW by printing and completing this form.  Return it to the church office. – Click here
