Vacation Bible School 2018: Shipwrecked
This summer for Vacation Bible School, kids will discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. Shipwrecked is 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. Join us for Shipwrecked VBS this summer, July 9th-13th! All rising PK4-5th grade students are welcomed to register as campers and youth entering grades 6-12 can sign up to volunteer. You can register at https://vbspro.events/p/events/mspcvbs2018. For more information, email Catherine Woods at email@example.com.
We need help gathering all of the supplies needed for VBS. Please stop by our VBS display in the Narthex and take a donation slip off the ship that fits a need that you can fulfill. You can return the items to the church office Monday through Friday or to the VBS display on Sundays. VBS will be held July 9-13th, but we ask that nonperishable items be delivered by June 10. Monetary donations are always welcomed.
