FUMCCG's"Rolling River Rampage" Vacation Bible School, which took place from July 30, 2018 -August 3, 2018, concluded with all-around smiles and wonderful memories!

At our Rolling River Rampage VBS, children participated in an interactive, energizing, Bible-based program that gave them an opportunity to experience the ride of a lifetime with God. Children enjoyed becoming "rafters" and exploring how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives. Relevant music, exciting science, creative crafts, fun recreation, and memorable Bible stories helped kids know that God is always with them as they ride the rapids of amazing grace!
