Conferences Nevada-Utah Young Heroes Wanted

Capes and Masks Optional

By Darriel Hoy

Move over Marvel and DC Comics—Nevada-Utah Conference (NUC) Children’s Ministries is grooming a new generation of young heroes! From August 3-7, children and entire families enjoyed virtual Vacation Bible School (VBS) from the safety of their homes. Utilizing the Heroes curriculum produced by the North American Division, the NUC Children’s Ministries team offered VBS in English and in Spanish. Children, teens, and adults from around the conference learned about the bravery of Miriam, the devotion of Samuel, the boldness of Rhoda, and other Bible children who God used in small ways to make a big difference.

While no child wants the best week of the summer to end, NUC finished VBS with Heroes Children’s Sabbath celebrations in English and Spanish. Children led both worship services from prayer and praise to raising funds for the Adventist Development and Relief Agency’s Every Child Everywhere in School project. Jeremiah Green, children and family life pastor at Mt. Rubidoux church in the Southeastern California Conference, and Angel Heredia, senior pastor of NUC’s Mountain View church, invited children and their parents to be real-life heroes by committing their lives to Christ.

The final program was a kindness rock painting project led by Cassie Navarro and Abby Pozo. Children committed to trusting Jesus, our Rock, to help them be brave, devoted, caring, bold, and generous everyday heroes. (Watch the Children’s Sabbath program in English at NUYouth YouTube channel and in Spanish at Nevada-Utah Seventh-day Adventists YouTube Channel.)

Devin and Kailani Norris of the Abundant Life church say yes to being God’s heroes.
