THANK YOU
A special thank you to all who volunteered and contributed to a successful Vacation Bible School.  This year we averaged close to 60 kids every day!  We want to thank those who worked with the kids, prepared the meals, donated items, and contributed to the Hope Haven wheel chair offering.  The kids gave enough money to buy 5 wheelchairs for those who need them around the world (a contribution of $500).  A special thanks to our VBS director, Karen Christoffels.  We now have an opportunity to continue the relationships we have built with the kids of our community by participating in Community Kickball. This will take place Wednesday nights at 7pm at the Chandler ball field, beginning this week.
