Each year we choose a mission project to allow kids to help others in need. A great way to introduce our children to the importance of helping others. Last year’s mission project was called Sarah’s Toybox, part of Sarah’s Butterfly Foundation. Each child that attended VBS received a gallon sized bag and a snack size bag. The gallon sized bags were filled with items such as school supplies and books. The snack sized baggies were filled with loose change. These items would then be donated to children in low-income families in the Ohio and Shenango Valley regions. We even made it fun and challenging for the kids with Boys VS Girls collections! At the end of the week, the Girls collected $603.88 and the Boys collected $517.16 for a total of $1,121.04!! That’s not including the wheel barrows full of supplies collected too! Great job Kids!!
At Make Fun Factory Vacation Bible School, kids explore what it means to follow Jesus through dark times. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of Jesus’ love, and have lost of fun! VBS is a fun time at Grace Chapel that you won’t want to miss! The dates for VBS run from Sunday, July 9th – Friday, July 14th, 2017.
