Our Best Summer Yet




Hello Friends,

Summer’s here and that means our soccer camp for kids is just around the corner.
  • August 6-9 is the week.
  • 1-4:30 pm each day is the time.
  • The Polonia Soccer Club here in Franklin is the place.
  • 4-11 are the ages.
  • $40 is the cost (covers T-shirt, water bottle, field rental, guest coaching staff, advertising, cook-out, and all supplies)
And yes that’s right…maybe you caught it…new to this year is that we’re prepared for 4 year olds! Every year we’ve heard from parents asking us if we would open our camp to 4 year olds. So this year we’re going for it. We’ve got the staff to do it. I’m hoping this will be our biggest and best camp yet! As always the kids are going to have a great time playing soccer, making new friends, having lots of fun, and most importantly learning about their loving God.

Have you registered your kids yet? Do it soon! July 10 is the deadline. Do you know anyone on your block with kids ages 4-11? Spread the word. Here’s a direct link to the online registration form.

And just so you know…we don’t want the cost of the camp to prevent anyone from being able to attend. If the cost is a deal-breaker for you, just let us know. We’ll work with you. We’re not making money on this camp, just trying to make a difference in the lives of kids in our community.

What else is going on this summer? In a week we’ll be participating in the City of Franklin’s 4th of July Parade. Our Victory of the Lamb church band will be playing music on our float and we’ll be promoting our soccer camp with postcards. Give me a holler if you see me at the parade!

Last but not least, summertime is actually a good time to check out our church. It’s laid back. You can wear shorts if you like. This Sunday in fact would be an especially good time to come too. I’ll be starting a new series called Undiluted Gospel.

What’s that about? Well if you’re really interested you can read more about it here.  Otherwise just think about it like this… would you rather drink freshly squeezed orange juice (ahhh!) or watered down orange juice from a can (meh)? Or if that’s not helping you at all… just come this Sunday and find out what I’ll be talking about. I promise to make it crystal clear. It’ll be the best news you hear all summer long!

As always too, if you have kids 18 mos. – 5th grade, come a little early before 9:30 am and register them for Bible Quest, our Sunday morning kids' ministry which is a lot like having Vacation Bible School every single Sunday.

God bless your summer!

Pastor Ben
