If you would like to sponsor a child you may simple make the donation by marking it 'for VBS scholarship'. In past years we have partnered with Happy Workers Child care Center.

Any scholarship monies that are left after registration is complete will be moved to our Service Project Fund.

Pass It On

When he was lifted up he drew all people, all things to himself. All things, from the most distant fires of the cosmos to the most intimate embers of the soul. A fundamental unity, the very ground of our being, has drawn it all to himself.
