VBS, July 9-13

We will again use the AIG (Answers In Genesis) Vacation Bible School curriculum. The theme is Operation Arctic.

Here is the AIG description:  Welcome to Operation Arctic! Every day, our kids are bombarded with the message that the Bible isn’t the true Word of God, that it can’t be trusted to tell us the truth about the past or, more importantly, about how we can receive the gift of eternal life. With the Operation Arctic VBS 2017 theme, your kids will warm up to the Word as they explore the coolest Book on the planet and discover how we can know for sure that the Bible is God’s written word to us!

We will add the link for registration right here. Please check back.

Our program will run Sunday through Thursday night.
