God's Perfect Son is the theme for Vacation Bible School this year.  We appreciate all of you who were able to make it to our VBS Workshop #1 last Sunday evening.  We need lots of volunteers, adn so if you weren't able to make it, please plan to join us at our next workshop.  VBS is a great opportunity to reach children who may otherwise not be involved in church.  It's our chance to pour God's love into them.
