They will be immersed into this vibrant culture where they discover God’s good gifts for us all. VBS is for children entering Kindergarten through kids completing 5th grade. Preschool and Nursery children are welcome with a volunteering parent or guardian. Our missions project this year is to help provide clean water for children in Peru. For just $5, you can provide clean water for an entire year for a child in a remote Peruvian Village. Our goal is to collect $1,000, which will provide clean water for 200 children.
