Share The Good News of Jesus Christ

Here is the Good News! Sixty-four community children came to our VBS and learned about the power of Jesus in their lives! It was wonderful to work with these cool kids. We had volunteers from OHPC and other churches in the community, including Calvary & Tyler Place Presbyterian Churches and St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church.

Friday was our last day! We learned about Acts 1 - 47 the story of the Holy Spirit coming at Pentecost, and heard the Gospel from Mark 16:15. "Go into the world and preach the Good News to Everyone!"

Our Beaker was filled to overflowing as we achieved our Daily Challenges

Professor Wilma tried to explain how sharing the word would look if we each told one, then two, then three...and everyone we knew!

Giant lightening bolts remind us to go out into the world and tell eveyone that Jesus loves them!

Our Global Mission Project was decorated soccer balls to be sent to Operation Kid - to -Kid for distribution to children in-need throughout the world. We wrote messages and prayed over each soccer ball and then presented them at our closing ceremony. For our local mission we collected baby supplies to help Isaiah 58 Ministries located at 2149 South Grand, St. Louis, MO.

We finished the day relaxing and visiting with parents and staff and enjoyed fellowship with a side order of hot dogs, chips, and ice cream sandwiches!

We hope all of you will join as at Oak Hill on Sunday morning at 10:30am. A happy and safe summer to everyone!
