Destination Dig (VBS 2021)

VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where discovery awaits at Destination Dig. Kids will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way, they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

Hoffmantown Kids VBS is a free event, June 7-11th, for kids who completed kindergarten through 6th grade. Registration for children is available at: or in the Kids Ministry Foyer.

It takes over 100 volunteers to do Vacation Bible School for our community. Will you prayerfully consider serving with this awesome team? We are currently seeking to fill lots of volunteer roles with all kinds of skill-sets both in classes with kids and not. We have a place for you! The Volunteer booth is in the Fellowship Mall. You are welcome to contact Sarah Goodrich at to sign up or for more information.

Specifically, VBS is looking for people with formal medical training such as: Doctors, EMTs, RNs, or Nursing Assistants to serve as VBS nurses. If you are not available the whole week, that is just fine. Please contact Sarah Goodrich if you are willing to share these skills.


Family Dedication May 9th

We are now accepting registrations for our Sunday, May 9th Family Dedication. Family Dedication is open to families with kids 10 and younger who have not previously been dedicated. Some families may choose to participate following the birth of each child. Family dedication is an opportunity to thank God for the precious gift of your child, an opportunity to publicly declare your desire to raise your child in a Christian home, and a benchmark you can return to time and time again to remember your commitment and measure your progress. The special time is also an opportunity for our church to commit to partner with our parents and assist them in laying a strong spiritual foundation for their child. Registration flyers can be picked up at the main check in area of the Children’s wing of the Church or at Registrations must be turned in by Monday, April 26th. If you have any questions about this dedication service, please contact Sarah Goodrich at 858-8601 or at


Kids Ministry Leaders Needed

Kids Ministry is experiencing lots of growth in our Nursery division (2 year olds and younger)! We are needing to add more leaders to care for and teach our littlest ones. We have openings during the 9:30am service in our infant and toddler rooms. Nursery team members serve one month at a time during the 9:30am service. So, as a team member, you would serve one month, attend service the next month, and then serve again the following month. We are anticipating this growth to continue as we head into the fall so this is an ongoing need. To serve, please contact Sarah Goodrich in the Kids Ministry at or 858-8601.
