10 days of prayer for VBS

Compiled by Laura Vickery

This coming week, more than 100 kids are coming to Creekside for Vacation Bible School (VBS), where they’ll learn about Jesus and how following Him changes the game. Of these 100-plus kids, more than 50% don’t attend Creekside.

Please use the following 10-day prayer calendar to join us in prayer for the kids, their families, the volunteers, VBS director Tammi Curtis and Creekside Kids’ Director Nina Spencer, and for God to be glorified through it all.
