Created in Christ - Designed for God's Purpose

July 18-22 5:30pm-8:30pm

Hillcrest Baptist Church would like to invite you to attend Vacation Bible School, July 18-22, from 5:30 to 8:30. Friday will also include a family event we are calling FamBam. This will be for everyone from ages 4 through 6th grade. For transportation call the office at 417-532-6159.

The Master Artist is working to redeem, reclaim, and transform us–His creation–to the design He planned for us. Join us for fun as we have amazing encounters with Jesus. Children under 5 will need a parent or guardian to stay at the church while sessions are going on.

Check out the various videos at Spark Studios.

This year’s theme is Spark Studios.

Get those creative juices flowing at Spark Studios where imagination is ignited and creativity is awakened. They will discover that their creativity is a gift from the infinitely creative Creator who designed them for His glory. God’s creativity didn’t stop in Genesis! The Master Artist is working to redeem, reclaim, and transform us—His creation—to the original design He planned for us. We are His workmanship (Eph. 2:10)—a masterpiece in process. So what are you waiting for? Spark your imagination and kick your creativity into high gear at Spark Studios.

Created, Designed, and Empowered.

"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do." Ephesians 2:10
