Vacation Bible School 2012 “Everything is possible with God” was a huge success. The Lord was praised in song, games, crafts, smiles and scripture.  Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who made this mission possible, and a special thank you to Amy Thoreson who once again did a great job of organizing and to the Schoville family for the exceptional decorating job.  We also thank Chick-fil-A for providing Free Chick-fil-A Nuggets Kid’s Meal graduation certificates for all of the children we were blessed to have involved in our VBS.   “Everything is possible with God”!

If you know someone who missed out on Vacation Bible School, there are still programs going on around the area.  VBS 2012 Locations
