Wish List for Vacation Bible School We're gearing up for another fantastic week of Vacation Bible School this year, and we need your help getting prepared! Below is a list of some of the materials we need to put together the curriculum for this year's theme, and any help we could get would be fantastic. In keeping with this year's theme, we're trying to be as environmentally neutral as possible, which means buying as little as possible. Any of these items you can start collecting (i.e. toilet paper rolls, cereal boxes, etc.) would be a HUGE help. There will be a box in the fellowship hall to collect these each week, so start looking for these items now, and keep 'em coming!
