Family: We are in the planning stages for VBS 2019 to be held July 8th - 12th. This year the theme is “ROAR.” The children will get ready for an African adventure that engages the whole HERD. Life is sometimes wild, but God is always good. At ROAR, kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. Each day they will learn a bible point addressing life. In order to help make “2019 VBS” live beyond July 8th – 12th, we need your help and support (volunteers, donations). During VBS all participants (adults and children) will be able to shop at the VBS store “The Treasure Box”. We are in need of items to stock the store. When you are out shopping, or have items to donate, please remember the VBS store The Treasure Box. Information regarding the registration process and classes for adults and youth will be provided in future bulletins.
