Do you have an encouraging Bible verse that you are leaning on right now? We would love to have you share that in a short video for us to show during our online pre-service time on Sunday mornings. Please email it to

52 Stories

All of us have unique interactions with God, stories of God showing up in our lives. In these 52 Stories, people connected to Schweitzer share how God is present and transforming in their lives. In watching, may you be inspired in Hope, encouraged in Faith, and active in sharing your story of God’s presence in your life.SUMMER MCFALL

“No matter how bad you feel. No matter how sad you are, feeling disappointed and defeated, because that’s how I felt…open up, pray to God.”



Our Good News Club school year at Pittman ended rather abruptly in March, but the leaders have been communicating Encouragement and Bible verse games weekly by mail with the students enrolled in the program. For the students who graduated from fifth grade, craft boxes were ordered, and the leaders wood-burned the student’s name, dates, and Good News Club on the top. Inside the box, was a CD of Good News Club songs, the themes from each lesson for the weeks they met, and laminated Bible verses that were taught and memorized this year.

Vacation Bible School has a brand new look! 

Instead of gathering in one place, we have the opportunity to host lots of VBS sessions—in your front yard!

VBS Block Parties will fuel wonder, discovery and passion both in kids and leaders! We can’t wait to see our faith shared far and wide in new and exciting ways.

When Is It?

That’s what we’re so excited about! When you register to host a VBS Block Party, you choose the date and time!

So Here’s the Plan:

If you’ve got a house with a yard, you can be a host! You’ll receive a VBS Block Party Kit that will help you throw a rockin’ VBS party! Each kit contains all that you need to:

  • Share a daily message with a Bible Story
  • Explore STEM with daily projects
  • Run fast-paced movement games
  • And more!

Each piece is designed to share a message about how our lives can change when we focus on God. We can’t wait to see how God uses you to make an impact in kids lives!
