SAVE THE DATE: July 9th-11th (Monday-Wednesday) 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. This year our VBS will be three days of SPYing on the parables of Jesus. This creative, interactive program is designed to teach children about three of Jesus' parables: The mustard Seed, The Pearl of Great Price, The Yeast in flour. We will celebrate the mysteries and gifts that God gives us through the parable Jesus taught. Each day in our opening celebration the children will be given clues to help unlock the lesson hidden in these multi-layered stories and we will use our activities, crafts and a service projects to learn how to apply these lesson to our daily lives. Don't miss the fun!

Rutger's Reading Classes will again be using our facility on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please do not disturb these classes. Thank you.
