BRAVE: VBS 2015

[fusion_text]How does God help you be brave? This year in Vacation Bible School, children in grades 1-5 pondered this question as they studied four Bible stories in which God asked people to be brave and helped them do it. A new special treat was experiencing the stories through videos which the children had made over the spring. Many thanks to our coordinators, teachers and youth crew leaders who made this week possible.
