Annual Events


Join us for VBS as we learn about Jesus, the Savior of the world, who gives us the living water of salvation! This year we learned about how God used water to save His people in the Old Testament as they waited for Jesus, and now as He gives us faith in Holy Baptism to believe in Christ. Crafts, music, games, snacks, and Bible stories were all be part of our 3 fun days.  We look forward to having you join us this year!
