Everywhere Fun Fair ~ VBS 2013
VBS 2013 group shot
VBS finished four great days of learning about how God calls us to love our neighbors.  The kids supported Kairos Prison Ministries with 1405 letters, place mats, and posters for the Kairos team to use on future Kairos Weekends.  In addition, our 5th and 6th graders made 120 sandwiches
for Austin Street.  We are grateful to the congregation for it's
support, donations, and most of all prayers.
 It was a fun week!
