BAM! Celebrates a Great Year and the Start of Summer
Our last BAM! (Bible and Music) of the year went out with a…BAM! on Sunday, May 21. The children made friendship bracelets, colored “Fruits of the Spirit” crowns, sang in the sanctuary, and played games outside – so much fun!
Thank you to all the children who joined us this year on Sunday evenings – we look forward to starting back up with BAM! on Sunday, September 9. Until then, have a great summer and we hope to see you at Vacation Bible School (July 24-July 27)!
