Mission at Home:  An Evening of VBS for All Ages
Sunday, July 28, 2019
4:30 to 7:30
Fellowship Hall

Please come be part of an intentional act of hospitality. Both children and adults are invited to participate in our unique Vacation Bible School.  

The event will be three parts.  
From 4:30 to 5:30, we all will put together welcome bags in assembly line style for     our neighbors staying at Rainbow House.  
From 5:30 to 6:30, we will separate for the lesson.  Patty Clark will be our adult           guest speaker and explore the mission of Metro Ministries with a "tour in a box"       while the children will learn about children at Rainbow House and their unique     experiences through crafts, Bible lessons, and games (designed with the help 
   of Metro Ministries). Parkway Youth and College Students will help lead the             children through the centers.
At 6:30, we will come together to enjoy a Mexican food dinner.  
Sign up in the narthex!
