  • Once again, there is another VBS ’in the books’! This was one of the best weeks we’ve had – our faculty who are abundantly blessed with skill, talent and a he art for children, and who selflessly and joyfully invested themselves in the lives of the children that God sent us were a tremendous blessing to all involved! We enrolled 165 children and had 74 leaders and averaged 207 each day!! Family Night was awesome with great program and attendance and many contacts with our community. But the very best part of this week were the children who prayed to receive Christ as their Savior and Lord and those others whose hearts were stirred and softened to the Gospel. We are thankful and greatly blessed!
