Vacation Bible School
July 16 – July 21 was an exciting time at Hope Valley as we watched children worship, play, laugh, and learn about what it means to be “Created by God and Built for a Purpose” at Maker Fun Factory VBS. One major God Sighting from our week was the success of our VBS Kids’ Mission Project – supplies were donated to fill 20 backpacks and $590 was raised to support World Relief Durham’s ministry to refugee children and their families.
As the church grounds return to a more “normal” appearance, we would like to offer a word of thanks to our church family. There are so many ways that Hope Valley Baptist Church invests in and provides support for VBS, and we are grateful for the hard work and dedication of the many volunteers who served in the weeks leading up to and during the week of VBS, as well as for those who consistently pray for Bible School and financially support VBS through faithful giving to the church budget. It is an honor and a privilege to serve alongside you in ministering to children and families in our community and around our world.
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.” (Philippians 1:3-5)
