VBS is right around the corner!
Kids ages 4-10 are invited to an exciting week of Vacation Bible School July 31 to Aug. 4! At Ocean Commotion, kids will dive deep into the account of Noah and the Flood from the book of Genesis! They’ll learn to apply the spiritual lessons from Noah’s life to their own. And, along the way, they’ll get to dig into the science behind the Flood through exciting science experiments! Each day will include crafts, games, music, snacks and fun with friends. Cost is $15, which includes a t-shirt. Please register by July 17: cometothesanctuary.org/vbs.
