Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, and collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love. Children ages 4 through 13 of all religions are invited to participate in St. Mark’s VBS. Registration will be held later but put the date on your calendar now! Lots of helpers are needed ages 14 to 99! To find out how to help contact Sherre Henley at firstname.lastname@example.org
