VBS will be July 26 through 29 beginning each evening at 5 and going until 8, 4 days of fellowship and fun for the kids.  A meal will be provided for  the children each evening.  Our leader this year is Sherry Watkins from Kinston

Sherry has been ministering in song for most of her adult life. She’s always felt a passion and a call to minister to people in a way that only “The Song” can do. So often people can’t understand the spoken word but the song always finds a way to touch and heal the unseen hurt. Sherry has watched as broken hearts were mended, eyes opened to the unseen and lives touched as God uses this vessel He has given her.


Sherry  has been ministering with the Pillar Music Group since 2001. Prior to 2001 she ministered in song at local, state, national and international conferences with various denominations. She was praise and worship leader in her local church for many years. In 1987 while attending Tomlinson College in Cleveland, TN, Sherry traveled and sang with The Tomlinson College Chorale. This planted a seed within Sherry that has blossomed into a passion to live in the complete will of God. While with  the TC Chorale Sherry had the privilege to travel the US and did a tour in the Bahamas. Later in 1993 Sherry returned to TC as a staff member and traveled and sang with the college recruiting group AZ1.


In 2000 God began redirecting Sherry’s life and showing the awesomeness of His mighty hand. Since 2001 Sherry has traveled most of eastern North Carolina and some of South Carolina and Tennessee with the Pillar Music Group.

Sherry has watched God through this ministry, save the sin sick, heal the broken hearted and set the oppressed mind free. The main focus of Sherry Watkins Music Ministry is to fulfill the Great Commission.   The theme this year is “Fruit of the Spirit”.  Please be praying for our VBS and that the Lord will prepare everyone’s heart for the large attendance expected.
