Our VBS Mission for the Week
As disciples, we have an opportunity to help some children who don’t have the opportunity to eat tasty and healthy meals during the summer. In VBS, the surfers are collecting nutritional snacks to make S.A.N.D. bags (Snack And Nutritional Delights). These S.A.N.D. bags will be distributed by the Rainbow Room and our local Salvation Army. The goal for this week was 50 bags. As of today, Thursday, we have collected enough nutritional delights for 50 S.A.N.D. bags and many many more S.A.N.D. bags.
