The Good News Is "Intergenerational Vacation Bible School" this week!

This week, June 11 – 15, 2017, we are pleased to engage in our first Intergenerational Vacation Bible School  and the theme is “Digging for Treasure: Parables Revealed.”  Arrr, our little pirates  are learning to sail the seas through arts and crafts as they listen to and learn about some of the parables Jesus shared.  “Intergenerational” because the adults are also dipping into the parables through adult-led classes with both Ron Allen from the Christian Theological Seminary and our Pastor Bob Brown.  No, we won’t go off the deep end because we are grounded in God’s Holy Word, eh, Matey!
