Pack your gear, get ready to set sail, and discover how to live God’s unshakable truth on Outrigger Island! This one-week adventure from July 28 to Aug. 1 is designed for ages 4 to eighth grade (separate VBS for middle schoolers, same time and location).

Attend one day or every day from 9 a.m. to noon at Mountain View Church, located at 2195 County Road 154 in Glenwood Springs next to BeauJo’s at Buffalo Valley. Snacks will be provided.

For more information, call 928-8328.

The 100th anniversary celebration of the Marble CommunityChurch will be held at 10 a.m. Sunday, July 6.

The church was transported from Aspen in 1908, and has remained on its corner lot for 100 years. It was renovated six years ago, and has a large fellowship hall and parsonage.

Former pastor Linda Boylan will conduct the worship service, and current pastor Lafe Murray will share a special message.

Lunch will be enjoyed at 11 a.m., followed by stories and memories. At 12:30 p.m., a dedication of a marble “worshipping angel” will be observed.

All are welcome to attend this celebration. Contact Pastor Lafe at 963-2441 with questions.

Help the Grand Valley Christian Church in Parachute celebrate its 110th anniversary and raise money for the historic church restoration project.

The fun begins at 7 p.m. July 5 with an old-fashioned tent revival featuring John Doden, evangelist and singer with Walt Smith on the keyboard. Continuing at 1 p.m. July 6 is a box lunch social. Kenny Mahaney will auction box lunches, with proceeds going for the historic church restoration. Bring your specially decorated box lunch and see if your sweetheart bids enough to enjoy the special picnic with you.

Everyone should bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy.

Fun continues with “Pucker Up Pastors for Pigs.” The local church ministers are accepting donations. The pastor with the most money in his jug will win the privilege of kissing a cute little piggy. All the proceeds will be donated to the historic church restoration project. At 5 p.m. a hand-cranked homemade ice cream social will be offered. All afternoon there will be old-fashioned games for kids of all ages, sack races, cow-chip throwing, three-legged races and wheelbarrow racing. For those believing they are too old for the games, enjoy music provided by Marge and Melissa, Walt Smith and Linda and Bob Boylan.
