Our Community Wide Bible School – Praisin’ in the Park


Earlier this week, we had our community wide Bible School for kids. Each year, we bring together numerous churches to work together and host a great week of ministry to children in our community. We meet in our community park and have lots of fun, but our main goal is to build relationships and share Christ with the kids. Each night we had over 200 children and almost 100 volunteers helped throughout the week. Our youth from Cornerstone did a great job serving, teaching, and helping each night. Our theme for the week was extreme sports, and we taught through five words that explained the Gospel: God, Sin, Substitute, Believe, and Life. It’s been a long week, but we saw many lives changed through the power of the Gospel!

Tim Byrne, a professional skateboarder from Portland, Oregon helped us kick off our opening night. He did an amazing job skating and sharing his faith. I also was able to spend some time with him and he is the real deal. I love his heart for youth ministry.

I want to give a huge shout-out to all our awesome volunteers. We had people helping with music, teaching, registration, sports, snacks, cotton candy and sno-cones, security, and cleanup. Thanks to everyone for all your hard work. The picture above are all volunteers who stayed to cleanup and tear-down everything after we finished.
