But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things
there is no law.

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.

— Galatians 5:22-25

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Looking for vacation Bible school in the Shellsburg area? Bring your children to Oak Grove Church, and they will never want to leave! We’ll have a great time learning all about what it means to be a Christian and how to walk with God — through Bible stories, games, songs, crafts, and exercise in a safe and loving environment for your child … check it out!

The Gotta Move! curriculum was designed to remind children that our God is faithful and will give us
everything we need to walk with Him. He gives us His grace, His Word, His Son, His forgiveness, and the
Holy Spirit. As children learn directly from Scripture, we pray that they will be eternally impacted by
God’s truths and the gospel.

As you well know, moving is something that children understand really well! Following Jesus means
taking action. As we walk with God, He lets us know where to go through His Word and by the power
of the Holy Spirit. God gives us everything we need to walk with Him, however, we need to “keep in
step” (Galatians 5:25) and do our part. When we are faithful, God produces the fruit of the Spirit in our
lives as well. These fruits will be emphasized throughout the Gotta Move! experience.
