Our camp also includes "The Zone", which is our indoor program featuring action packed songs with the "Tim Tam Slams", dramas and Bible lessons about God's love shown through His son, Jesus Christ.
Everit and Alice are two normal siblings - to put it lightly - they have a hard time getting along sometimes. Tempers often flare as they try to beat one another in video games - until something unusual happens. A new user called "Player One" logs onto their server and invites them into the video game console which launches them into the most epic adventure of their lives! Watch as "Wrench it Rod" helps them transform into new characters and hop into different games, each of which they have to beat before they can escape the console and make it back into the real world. Watch as they learn tons of lessons about God's great love for us! This love is so great that it just might help them love each other! See it all unfold at this years VBS!

Thank you for the prayerful support you have given to our leadership as we have been seeking God’s wisdom for the future pastoral staff of Sardis Fellowship. We are excited to share with you that through a patient and prayerful process, God has led us to what we believe His plan is for filling the pastoral ministry roles of our Church Family.

Following the Worship Service on April 7th will be a light lunch, which we ask your help in bringing a plate of sandwiches to share, and then a presentation outlining more detailed information about the roles and the stories of how God has led these three men into further pastoral ministry.
