do mission work, read Bible stories, make crafts, and so much more!
• Don’t forget about our family color war on Wednesday night! You won’t want to miss the fun!
• On Thursday, we will meet for a family celebration at Founder’s Pavilion and Pool for our big finale. 
Our why…
One of our core values at DSUMC is family, and this VBX model has been developed with the value of family in mind. A key element for Make Waves VBX this year is to recognize parents as the spiritual leaders in their homes. We believe this VBX can be a great emphasis for our community and church family to help empower and equip parents, grandparents, and other grownups in the children’s lives to better lead their children on their spiritual and developmental journey. 
We can’t wait to make waves with you and your family this Summer!
*All children are invited to attend with their responsible grown-up (a grandparent, a caregiver, Mom, Dad, aunt, uncle, adult sibling, etc.) who is over the age of 18.
