Vacation Bible School

July 21-25, 2014

At Weird Animals VBS, kids from preschool to 6th grade discover that Jesus’ love is one-of-a-kind. Weird Animals is a habitat filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste!

Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes). Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightngs. Get ready to hear that

phrase a lot! Kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project!

Contact Robyn Jovalis at 421-1017 for more info. Scholarships are available!
