I want to invite you to participate in this year’s VBS called “Unified Community VBS” with the theme “God of Wonders”.
This event will take place at the Walter Hill Elementary School July 29-August 2, 9am -1pm. God of Wonders is an epic 5-
day Vacation Bible School adventure where you and the kids will explore the exciting story of Moses and discover the
God of Wonders along the way!
One unique feature regarding this year’s VBS is that we are partnering with the First Baptist Church of Swedesboro. Not
only will this partnership demonstrate a wonderful sign of unity within our church communities, it also means we will
have the opportunity to combine our leaders, volunteers and resources which potentially should increase our outreach
potential as we seek to share the love of Jesus Christ with the kids in our community!
The fruits of this collaboration give our churches the ability to gain excess from a larger pool of people’s talents, gifts and
possibilities for outreach in our region.
So, do you want to join the team and make a positive difference for Jesus Christ?
