VBS 2019:  “IN THE WILD” – Volunteer Registration is OPEN NOW! 7th Grade Students through Adults – help us prepare well – and well ahead of time by registering now to serve @ VBS.  All the details can be found here:

VBS (Vacation Bible School) is Mon-Fri, June 10-14 at 9am-noon for kids entering Kindergarten (August ’19) through completed 6th grade (’18-’19 school year). We also provide classes for children, birth-4 years of VBS Leaders. VBS is 3 hours of learning, singing, dancing, and having fun with friends, while learning about scripture, and what our Great God has done for us through His son, Jesus Christ. Registration for Kids (Learners) opens in April.

VBS 2019:  Decoration Team Members Needed NOW! We are expanding our VBS Decor team from a group of 3 to a minimum of 6 team members. We have an exceptional Leader who has a vision for our theme and would appreciate input and assistance to make this portion of VBS a success. You don’t have to be a professional artist to be a part of this team, of course, but if that’s your gift, fantastic! It’s more about being a helpful, positive team member, and completing assigned tasks on time. We will provide all the supplies needed! To share your gifts, please contact Cherie Niscavits  at or 281/332-2133, ext. 105.

Champion’s Club: We look forward to opening our Champion’s Club classrooms, ministering well to families. One room is outfitted with motor and sensory equipment and the other will be our teaching room. We are blessed to have these tools to minister to kids needing one-on-one assistance. However, we will not open until we have a strong team of leaders secured and trained to serve. You don’t have to be a professionally educated teacher, but those of you with this training would be extremely helpful to our ministry. If you are interested in supporting this ministry, email  or you may apply at

252 Kids (Worship): Our NEW Kids Theater is open for our 1st-4th grade worship at 9:30. It is a spectacular space with the tools to enhance worship and teaching. It takes PEOPLE to make the most of the gifts we’ve been given (including our kids). Opportunities are available for Teachers, Worship, Drama, Tech and Kid Connectors. Training is ongoing! Applicants may apply at or email for more information.
