The kids will know of God’s Promise on Life’s Wild Ride through this year’s theme of Splash Canyon, which includes interactive Bible stories, upbeat music and lots of fun.  Summer break starts in less than 2 months and that means that VBS is not far behind. Join fellow classmates and meet new friends at the 2018 Splash Canyon VBS. To register, navigate to St. Paul's website (www.stpaulsdesperes.org).
