Vacation Bible School is fast approaching for kids, students and adults.  This year’s dates are June 25-29. As students focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders—that the God who created everything there is—the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible—wants a personal relationship with them!  Come see the God who is over the moon in love with you. Begin praying and begin inviting as we look forward to a life-changing week here at Port Royal Baptist Church. If you can help or have questions, please see our VBS Director, Ive Chubb. VBS will begin at 5:15pm with supper and then 6:00pm – 8:30pm for VBS.
