VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 2014
Mark your calendars for this year's VBS to be held June 23rd to June 27th 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM. This year's theme is "Weird Animals". Where Jesus' love is one of a kind. Today more than ever, kids need to know that they are loved unconditionally. Jesus showed unconditional love to lepers, outcasts, and even criminals...people who may have been considered "weird" or different. Prayerfully consider where you can help in changing hearts and showing kids that Jesus' love is one-of-a-kind. VBS Mission Projects this year will be Heifer International. Offerings will be used to purchase livestock to alleviate hunger and poverty to impoverished families worldwide. Also, our local SPCA.
