Make a Joyful Noise

July 18, 2014

Note from Erin: Since Josh is the creator of the Science VBS curriculum Riverwood will be using for our VBS Day Camp July 31 and Aug 1, I thought it would be good for you to hear from him.

By Josh Denhart

One of the “basic” elements of faith is scripture memory. Memorizing Bible verses comes easier to some, but maybe not for you.

At Riverwood Church's "Science VBS Day Camp," your kids will be encouraged to memorize a Bible verse that corresponds with each lesson — Believe, Ask, Serve, Impact, Celebrate. Each memory verse has it’s own scripture song written by Lantern Music.

Your kids will enjoy hearing these catchy tunes and watching the professional music videos that go along with them. Hopefully they will come home each night singing these songs and eager to share their new Bible verses with you. What a great opportunity to work on scripture memory as a family this summer!

Josh Denhart is the Children's Pastor at Valley Church in West Des Moines, as well as the author of the BASIC Elements VBS curriculum. Josh hosts a traveling, character-based program called "The Amazing Chemistry Show"  where he gets to combine his chemistry teaching background and love for Jesus. Josh is married to Sarah, and together they have four kids.

It doesn't matter to us if you:

  • are a Wartburg student or a grandparent,
  • vote Democrat or Republican,
  • are married, divorced, or single,
  • have gone to church for years or haven't been to church in years,
  • make $100,000/yr. or wonder how you're going to pay rent this month,
  • or fear your past mistakes make you unlovable to God or others.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we want to help you become who God has created you to be.
