What’s going on?

OutdoorService_2016_480In addition to meaningful worship in a beautiful setting, Sunday’s outdoor worship service will also give us a chance to honor the dedicated volunteers who serve our church family in so many ways. We’ll be expressing appreciation for volunteers from Riverdale as well as Glenwood in a combined 10:00am service. Stick around afterward for an appreciation lunch—hot dogs, chips, cookies, and beverages for all! And bring your baseball gloves, frisbees, footballs and other outdoor games.

  • Sunday, June 26
  • One service at 10:00am

What’s coming up?

VBS2016_DeepSea_480Families—get ready to dive into a life-changing adventure that leads kids deeper into God’s love! This year’s Vacation Bible School is a “Deep Sea Discovery” that is educational and inspirational. Kids will:

  • Participate in the large-group excitement of Celebration Reef
  • Experience God’s Word on the S.S. Discovery
  • Learn ways to serve others on the E.C.H.O. Sea Sub
  • Explore the mysteries of the sea through crafts and science in the Curiosity Cavern
  • Enjoy snacks and games at Pelican Pier

There’s even a place for little puddle jumpers at Tide Pool Playland!

Along the way, kids will explore the depths of the Bible using five dive markers to guide them. Through Deep Sea Discovery, they will resurface knowing that God is with them wherever they go.

The details

Deep Sea Discovery is for kids in preschool through 5th grade (that is, entering fifth grade in the fall). Kids entering 6th grade may sign up, but they’ll be considered helpers.

Deep Sea Discovery runs from July 18–22, 9:00am–noon each day. To secure your kids’ place on the dive team, register online at:

Anything else?

TheStory_480We’ve been reading The Story together! The Story is a collection of all the famous Bible stories, in chronological order. We’ve been reading a chapter each week in our homes and families. We’ve been discussing it in small groups or one-on-one. And the messages we’ve been hearing from the pulpit each Sunday are giving us additional insight about what we’re reading.

We are currently reading chapters from the New Testament—Jesus, the disciples, the early church. We’ll cover it all in chronological order. This is a great chance to join us. Pick up a copy of the book in the bookstore, and jump right in.

Living Springs believes that God’s Word is essential reading for disciples who want to make disciples. By reading and discussing The Story together, we find the mutual encouragement we need. So be encouraged! And encourage someone else!
