Vacation Bible School - August 11 to 15 from 9 am!

Vcation Bible School 2014 Jerusalem Marketplace - August 11 to 15 from 9:00 to 12:00
This year at our annual VBS children can experience what it was like to live in the times that Jesus and His disciples lived.  They walk where He walked and they see what He saw – and they do what He did!  The marketplace is the place where the Bible is demonstrated in drama, music, crafts, shops, games, dancing and cooking.  All volunteers will represent a disciple or other person from the Bible.  This gives all who enter a lifelong experience of being around in the time of Christ.
Volunteers are needed and appreciated!  For children K to 5th grade, with 6 to 12 graders welcome as junior leaders. The cost is only 2000 yen this year but we are asking for daily snack donations and general congregation donations so that every child who wants to join can.  Sign-ups will be taken at the VBS table in the lobby and anytime by email to
