VBS "ROARS" IN JULY!
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is coming July 7th - 11th. Sunday, July 7th, is the kick-off at 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The daily sessions July 8th - 11th meet daily 9:00 a.m. - Noon. The final event will be a dinner and program on Thursday, July 11th at 5:30 p.m. Registration is $25 per family.
This safari themed VBS adventure helps kids explore God’s goodness while celebrating a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. Students will learn that God is good and will stay with them forever. Each day at Roar VBS, kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures. At Roar, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day, making it easy to apply long after VBS is over.
We also need volunteers to help out each day. To volunteer or for more information, contact BethAnn Clark (BethAnnLClark@gmail.com; 724-840-9078).
