August – Game On! Pop-Up Camp

Gear up for life’s big game! This summer Downtown Baptist Church is taking VBS to the community and “popping up” around Alexandria, giving families the chance to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. Join us for a few hours of fun that will include an exciting Bible lesson, energizing games, a keepsake craft, and awesome music as we learn from the ultimate playbook. Parents must stay with kids 5 and under.

Our Pop-Up Camp Calendar is:

* August 3, 4-6 PM @ JW Tumbles (3 – 9 years) Register here!

* August 10, 4-6 PM @ Scramble (Crawlers – 11 years old) Register here!

* August 20-24, 9 AM – 12 PM @ Casa Chirilagua

Volunteers Needed: Adult and youth volunteers are what make this experience great. Sign-up to volunteer for one or more events here. There will be a volunteer training meeting on Sunday, July 15 after worship.

August 18th – Parents’ Night Out

We’re squeezing all the fun we can out of summer this year! Join us for an evening of stories, crafts and games related to August’s theme, “End of Summer Fiesta” on Saturday, August 18th fron 5-8PM. This is hosted by DBC and Juguemos a Cantar Spanish Immersion and is open to children 3 – 11 years old.  Pack a dinner and drink for your child to enjoy in our Kid’s Lounge. Send an extra pair of clothes for younger ones, in case of an accident.

August 26th – Downtown 101

Have you started attending DBC this summer? Have you been here for awhile but want to learn more about the church and how connect further? Then join us after worship on Sunday, August 26th for our Downtown 101 class. This will take place over lunch (which is provided) and will entail a conversation about our beliefs, history, vision for the future, and more. This is a great opportunity to take next steps at DBC and to connect with our staff and other newcomers. Please sign up here.
