Vacation Bible School is coming sooner than you think. From June 23-28, we will blast off "To Mars and Beyond!" as VBS takes us into outer space. Every year we have an evening session (23-27) for the church and community and a morning session (24-28) for our COM Summer Safari. We need lots of helping hands for both sessions, so please click here for the volunteer form or talk to JaynĂ© Kirk! There are jobs for everyone, but the best part of VBS is being blessed to be a blessing to all the children who attend. I hope you join us!
