Grace VBS – The Incredible Race – August 2019

Excitement is in the air! Grace will once again host Vacation Bible School here, Sunday, August 4 through Thursday, August 8, in the evenings. Returning to Answers in Genesis programming, the children will “join The Incredible Race” and discover that no matter where we live, what shade of skin, or what language, we are all part of the same family from Adam and Eve. They will learn that God is calling people from every tribe and nation (all part of the same family from Adam and Eve) through His Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world – and that He wants us to share this good news with our neighbors near and far.                                           

RECRUITING VOLUNTEERS NOW:  There are MANY positions needed to make this happen. Prayerfully consider giving your time to bless the children (and you’ll be blessed as well). Contact the VBS Co-Directors:   Jocelyn Amesbury (roseofjune@icloud.com) or Jordan Routhier (jordiewithay@gmail.com) if you desire to serve.
