Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another (1 John 4:11).

God calls us to do all we can to help others. Please consider donating to these ministries to help local families and our soldiers overseas.

We can use cereal, peanut butter, jelly, vegetables, soups, tuna fish , mac & cheese – but all donations are welcome! Donations can be dropped off at the church. There are large bins inside the door (by the stairs).

Vacation Bible School, A Week of Blessings!

Friday, August 8th, 2014

We were blessed by so many things this week at Vacation Bible School:
1. The children that came with smiles on their faces and open hearts to learn about God
2. The giving hearts of the children that raised over $600 for the 5000 Thousand More Food Pantry to help families in need
3. The parents that brought their children to worship with us
4. The volunteers that came out each night and put their hearts into making this a great week for the kids
5. God’s love as it resonated through the songs, the games, the stories, the volunteers, the kids and the parents.
The children’s energy as they worshiped this week was breathtaking and touched many of our hearts.

Thank you to the Bunker Hill Church congregation that supported the VBS program with their prayers and donations.
Thank you to the volunteers who gave their time and love to VBS.
Thank you to the parents for bringing your children to worship with us.
Thank you to the kids for being so good and making this week just as much fun for the adults as it was for the kids.
Most of all Thank you to God for working through us to pass the message of his love onto these children and their families.

We pray that they will continue to feel God’s love throughout their lives. We pray that every family felt welcome and that they know the doors to the church are always open.

Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—
