June 7,2018

Our church has a great tradition of Vacation Bible School (VBS) for which we are thankful. However, with our success in the past, let’s not take VBS for granted. Here are reasons I believe in VBS, and why I hope our church continues to support VBS through a high attendance of children.


1. Kids get saved! Every year children publicly decide to become a Christian during VBS. We often discover these stories of change in subsequent months, letting us know that these are not emotional reactions, but true moments of conversion.
2. Catechism occurs. “Catechism” is a traditional term for a systematic presentation of Christian principals (often through questions and answers). VBS presents the gospel and ask questions in different ways throughout VBS, which is part of a child’s faith development. Plus, it’s fun! VBS is part of our strategy to develop the next generation’s faith.
3. Volunteers are established.   VBS grows our “worship one, serve one” volunteer emphasis.   Many people serve at CIL all year long because VBS gave them a starting place to use their gifts.
There are many other reasons, but I wanted these observations to motivate you to register your kids, grandkids, and neighbors.

We are looking for more children than ever during this year’s VBS. As our church continues to grow, we want participation in VBS to experience parallel growth.

Here are some important notes about VBS for 2018:

– It is Tuesday – Friday this year!
VBS is happening at CIL on TuesdayJune 19 through FridayJune 22 (starting at 5:45pm). We are excited to try this new span of days.
– We are serving a snack each night, but not a full meal.

– New programming! Aubrey McGowan and Sonnet Pentecost will be a dynamic team leading music and skits this year. Pastor Chip Johnson – our VBS Director – will join Sonnet in presenting the Bible points and helping to drive home the gospel message each evening.
– We are praying!   We believe God will change lives, strengthen faith, and build our community through VBS.

May 31, 2018

June is a great month for kids to grow closer to Jesus and each other through incredible opportunities at CIL. Make sure you know the details on these two:


Camp Blast

Kids summer camp at CIL called Camp Blast! Rising 3rd grade through rising 6th grade students head to Whispering Pines Camp in Castalian Springs for a weekend get-away Friday afternoon, June 8th, and return by noon on Sunday, the 10th. The cost is $140 for the first child, and $130 for two or more kids in the same family. We know the impact camp can have in a child’s life, and want all our CIL kids to be there. If the cost is a barrier, please connect with Pastor Chip about a scholarship.

Make your child’s registration for Camp Blast today at cil.churchcenter.com


Parents, there is a meeting between services this week, June 3rd in The Loft (upstairs at CIL). We will be answering any questions you have and collecting medical forms and remaining payments. The meeting will take place several times between 10:15am and 10:45am giving everyone adequate time to arrive and check-in kids, etc.

For details, contact Pastor Chip Johnson at chip@thechurchatindianlake.com
Vacation Bible School
VBS is coming to CIL on Tuesday, June 19th through Friday, June 22nd. We host an evening VBS that starts at 5:45. It’s a full evening of fun, music, and learning about Jesus. We’d love for your rising kindergarten through rising 5th grade kids to be here for Shipwrecked
