We had an incredible week at VBS with 146 kids and 65+ volunteers! Thank you to everyone who spent time getting supplies together, decorating, loving children and cleaning up. Thank you to those who donated items we needed! This week would NOT have been possible without the help of each of you. I am so lucky to get to experience such a great week!
