Don’t Monkey Around—Join Our Prayer Safari at Kingdom of the Son!!

We’re excited about the Weeping Water Community Vacation Bible School to be held July 27-31.  This year’s program is Kingdom of the Son, a week of safari adventure!
    Children will embark on a prayer safari into the Kingdom of the Son.  Through their adventures, children will discover that “God Listens,” “God Provides,” “God Forgives,” “God Protects” and “God Rules!”  We will have a great time with lively songs, hilarious skits, creative crafts, exciting games, Bible stories and tasty snacks—all of the things that make Vacation Bible School so much fun for children.  On top of that, we will be helping children learn to know God through prayers.
    Kingdom of the Son can be an inspirational and educational expedition for your entire family.  Classes for children begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:00.  The opening, closing, and all classes will be held at the Faith Missionary Church in Weeping Water.  Parents and other family members are invited to attend the end of the week lunch with their children.  This lunch will also be held at the church and is free to everyone.  
    For more information, please call Dawn or Pastor Sandy at 267-4865 or you can contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  
    Registration forms will be available soon!  Please join us for an exciting week of learning about God and making wonderful memories.
