VBS 2019: We are in the planning stages for VBS 2019 to be held July 8th - 12th, from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. This year the theme is “ROAR.” The children will get ready for an African adventure that engages the whole HERD. At ROAR, kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. We are looking for volunteers to assist in the following areas: 1) Decorating, 2) Crew leaders (work directly with children), 3) Set up & clean up, and 4) Donations. Registration can be completed on the Metropolitan website, also in the front foyer. Invite your family and friends, classes are available for adults and children. If you have any questions, contact Bernetta Driver, Shanda Huston or Gloria Nunn.
