Online Registration Open! Registration Deadline: April 5
We invite all children between the ages of 3½ years through fifth grade to Vacation Bible School, June 22-26. This year, we are heading into the wilderness with Moses and the Israelites - trusting God all the while! We will travel back in time and experience life in the Israelites' camp as we explore the journey they took with Moses and all they learned about their relationship with God along the way. Throughout the week, children will enter the Old Testament world through Bible adventures, crafts and games, discovering the strength of God's faithfulness and their own faithful response.
It will be a week of adventure and fun with God and each other! Experience God's covenant.Join us for Moses: Wilderness Escape.

Announcing a New Ministry
Do you love to cook? We need you! When people are ill, been hospitalized, had a baby, or someone close to them has passed away, it is always nice to have a meal or two during these times when our life feels upside down. We would like to put together a team of individuals who can be contacted in a time of need. Our ministry will be called Casserole Crusade. Please email Kimbra Ong to join this important ministry.
