Vacation Bible School
Our 2012 Vacation Bible School was a huge success. These were the highlights.
Dare to go deep with God!
Dive in and discover God's underwater universe! Swim with humpback whales and seahorses, scuba through a vibrant coral reef, and take a personal submarine to the ocean floor, where eels and octopi play. As they journey miles below the water's surface, kids plunge into Bible stories of people with deep faith and learn to trust a God whose love is bigger than the sea.
June 25-29 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM
