Online-Only Services This Weekend

Nicole Scriven’s Story

God took me on quite an EPIC journey this summer! I had the privilege of serving as a host at a week-long kids journey at our church called EPIC. From the moment I said yes to the invitation to serve in this role, I started feeling restless emotionally. I love Valley Creek Kids and have a heart for the families and kids of this community, but I’ve never spoken or led on such a large platform.

While this invitation was exciting, it was also challenging for me. But, God reminded me over and over again that He was with me and that He had this. God surrounded me with life-giving people who continually reminded me of WHO I am in Jesus.

As I prepared each night, God ever so sweetly whispered, “Nicole you think this is for them, but this is for YOU.” I found myself declaring God is Good, Jesus Has Forgiven Me, I am Loved and Everything is Possible over myself.

I was reminded that the invitation to serve was really an invitation to know God in a deeper way. I am forever grateful that I said YES to this next step, for the way Jesus revealed more of Himself to me through this opportunity, and for our VCC Family who were so supportive and life-giving every step of the way!
