We have many exciting opportunities for children during the summer at Thornapple

  • Adventure Week: June 25-28, 2018, 9:30am-3:00pm each day for fall 6th-8th grade. This a fantastic week of serving and doing fun things around Grand Rapids. Registration for this will open at noon on May 21. There are only 40 spots for this and we give Thornapple kids priority by giving you all the first opportunity to register. 
  • Camp Creation: Not scheduled for 2018; we're taking a year off to re-evaluate this ministry.
  • Vacation Bible School: July 30-Aug. 3, 2018, 9:00am-Noon for fall K-5th grade. Click here to register for 2018 VBS.

Sundays: On Sunday mornings in the summer, we offer our Summer Sunday Celebration for fall 4-year-olds through 1st grade during our worship service at 10:00am. We encourage our 2nd through 6th graders to worship with their families in the Sanctuary in the summer. Worship packets are available in the Lobby for those who would like to use them. Nursery is available to children birth to three-years-old.

Portage Lake Bible Camp is the Covenant denomination's camp for kids and students in west Michigan. To go directly to the camp website main page, click here.

We realize this is a time when people may be looking for a church home due to a recent move. We hope that you will explore the website to see what is offered during the school year and that we might meet you when you visit to answer any questions you may have.
