VBC:  A Wild, Weird and
Wonderful Week!

Saint John Fisher’s campus transformed into the perfect habitat for some of the most marvelous creatures on earth–our Vacation Bible School kids! We had 70 children and even more volunteers here during the first week of August to enjoy “Weird Animal”-themed games, crafts, snacks and more all in the name of Jesus’ love! It was a tremendous week for all!
