Vacation Bible School. Submerged: Finding Truth Below The Surface

June 26th, 2016 6:00 PM - June 30th, 2016 - 9:00 PM
Submerged: Finding Truth Below The Surface Prepare to embark on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. Thrilling discoveries await just beyond the portholes of your submarine-beautiful coral, stunning marine life in vivid colors, and dark, unfamiliar sea creatures-sights reserved for only the most adventurous explorers brave enough to dive deep. Things look very different once you get below the surface-and that's true for life above the surface too. As kids are submerged into God's Word, they will discover that Jesus saw people differently. He didn't see just what was on the outside, He saw people for who they were on the inside-down deep. As kids learn to see themselves and others as Jesus sees them, they can realize that everyone needs a Savior. They will discover that a relationship with Jesus Christ changes everything! Come join us! All you have to do is dive in!!!
