That’s a wrap! VBS 2017 has come to a close, and it was a great week! We had as many as 39 kids this week—with 46 different kids—plus as many as 102 adults, teens, and volunteers. But more important than our attendance numbers, both the kids and adults got to hear stories about our epic God who is at work in our lives.
A special thank-you to all our volunteers, decorators, teachers, team leaders, refreshment coordinators, A/V techs, donors, directors, puppeteers, song-singers, game-runners, craft-makers, and helpers who helped to make VBS a success. Praise God for a great week!
We will be showing a brief slideshow today recapping the week. An extended version will be posted online. Check it out!

Anna McCreary was baptized on Wednesday night at the close of VBS. Praise God for our new sister, and pray for her as she grows in her discipleship to Jesus!
