Check back here often to find out what’s happening this week, next week, and into the future at Fruit Cove! 

VBS Offering

Kids and leaders brought in $7,808.00 in cash, and we took 7 bags of coins to the bank. It will take a few days to get the coin amount back from the bank, but all indications are that this will be a record-breaking VBS offering! We look forward to blessing our partners in Australia with this gift that will enable them to facilitate Holiday Kids Clubs!

Summer’s here, and so is Water Day at Fruit Cove Baptist Church! Dive into fun on July 17th, from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. We invite all rising 1st graders through completed 5th graders for epic water slides and cool times. And guess what? It’s free! Children should come dressed in a bathing suit and bring a towel. We’ll provide snacks and drinks. Want to bring a friend? Make sure to register them online as no walk-ups can be accommodated. Let’s splash into summer!

Missions Lunch & Learn

Join us on July 21st from 12:00 to 2:00 PM for a Missions Lunch and Learn. We will hear from a local Refugee Resettling Agency on ways you, your family and your Connect Group can help this organization. Did you realize our area will welcome around 4000 refugees this year?

People arriving from places like Haiti, Afghanistan, and Cuba, setting foot on American soil for the first time in their lives. We can be a part of the initial wave of people to welcome them, to make them feel at home! Register at the button below.
