With the exciting Splash Canyon, children, and our parish alike, had the most awesome experience learning that God is ALWAYS with us, God gave us LIFE, God is ALWAYS faithful, God gives HOPE and Jesus, who is God, is our SAVIOR!
Our key Bible verse for the week was 2 Corinthians 1:20, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in Him.” Life is full of thrills and spills; we may not know what’s around the bend, but God does! At Splash Canyon,the kids discovered that, on life’s wild ride, Jesus is by our side.
This wild ride that we all experienced at VBS was made exceptional because of our wonderful and adventurous volunteers!! Please, if you see any of these AWESOME disciples out and about THANK them for sharing their time, talents and faith with our Lil Leo's during this week! Down below you will find photos for each day, a video of the singing portion of our closing program and also our grand total for our Coins for a Cause service project. But before you check that out, we need to acknowledge our dedicated disciples:
