Back to VBS
There are so many ways that you can get involved. From station leaders and special projects to providing supplies and setting up, you can make a difference! Here are ways that you can help our children attending summer VBS by providing supplies for our inventors’ factory!
Calling for cans: We need 70 clean, empty, shiny soup or similar size cans. Please save yours and bring them to church by June 11.
- Walmart gift cards are needed to purchase food, paper products and other supplies. Gift cards can be purchased in store or online (please ship directly to the church) at: http://bit.ly/2sjfNg0
We expect to have more than 100 children, youth volunteers and adult leaders taking part in this great week of sharing God’s word. Please help us make it happen with the purchase of needed supplies.
