Driftwood Christian Church 5564 South State Road 135 Vallonia, IN 812-358-4036
On December 21st Driftwood had its live nativity in Brownstown. A special thanks to The Peoples Bank for letting us use their facilities and to all those who volunteered to make it happen. This year we also had a brand new nativity "set" thanks to some generous donations of time and materials. We hope you were able to stop by and see it for yourself!
Driftwood offers a free lunch to the community on the 2nd Wednesday of every month except for January and February due to the unpredictable winter weather. Here we have some photos taken of our last luncheon for the year. It was mighty cold outside, but some warm soup helped take care of that.
Superstart is possibly the largest Christian weekend event in the nation for preteen students. The weekend is absolutely full of high-energy worship, small group lessons, and fun. Driftwood took 6 students this year.
Ladies Prayer Tea
This year was the 2nd Ladies Prayer Tea hosted by Driftwood. The ladies enjoyed a fine morning of being pampered and sipping delicious tea.
October 25th was our annual Trunk-or-Treat event in place of our regularly scheduled youth group classes. The kids enjoyed collecting candy from the various families who had come and decorated their trunks as well as a hey ride and some other games.
2017 DCC Campout
Driftwood had their annual camp-out from September 29th - October 1st. We enjoyed some hot-dogs and burgers for lunch followed by an array of soups and chili for supper. We also enjoyed music by the Bluegrass Gospel Alliance and Surrender Road. The kids had a blast playing kick-ball while some of the adults enjoyed the fellowship and bean-bag toss. Over 100 people attended on Saturday with about 40 participating in our Sunday morning service at the shelter house. It was a great weekend with perfect weather.
2017 Country Cruisin'
With 93 vehicles in attendance and absolutely beautiful weather, this will be a car show to remember. It's pretty safe to say that all in attendance had a wonderful experience, especially those who won the door prizes and the People's Choice awards. Then top it all off with lunch from T.J.'s Barbecue and you have quite the afternoon.
Driftwood Christian Church and Brownstown Christian Church got together for a fun-filled day at Kings Island. The kids had a blast and even got to stay at the Loveland Christian Church the night before so we could get into the park early. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!
VBS - Hero Central
Our 2017 VBS was absolutely Super. Our Hero Central theme had the kids learning how they can be God's heroes. They learned that: God's Heroes have HEART. God's Heroes have COURAGE. God's heroes have WISDOM. God's heroes have HOPE. God's heroes have POWER.
Our scripture verse was Psalm 34:14b. Do Good. Seek peace and go after it!
Our students also raised some money to send to Hilltop Christian Camp to support them and the work that they do. Hope to see you around next year!
Our youth came out to the Wheatley's where they were treated to a morning of water-tubing and lunch off the grill. Everyone had a great time.
Mission Trip - 2017
Easter Egg Hunt - 2017
We had 96 people show up for our Easter-egg hunt on Saturday, April 15th. About 40 of them were children, so apparently the adults wanted in on some fun too! It's no surprise, as we had over 1000 eggs for the kids to find. But it's not all about eggs and candy. The children also heard a devotion about how the Bible is a true story about how God loves each of us and how we can show our love to Him. A big thanks to everyone who helped make this happen!
