From Pastor Lori Harvey, Lead Pastor at Salem Grace UMC

Our church is busy this week with children attending our Vacation Bible School program.  The children experience an epic African adventure that explores God's goodness and celebrates a ferocious faith.  Each day, the children learn that no matter what happens, God is good.  There are times when life is scary, but God is good.  at other times, life seems unfair but we can still affirm that God is good.  Of course when life is good, it is easier to acknowledge that God is good.  At Roar VBS, the Bible point is integrated into each station activity.  They will learn scripture in a fun and energizing way.

We hope you will join us this Sunday for worship at 9 a.m.  The Vacation Bible School children will tell us all about their awesome week through singing, dancing and scripture reading that reminds us, God is good, all the time.
