Welcome to VBS at Haran! We’re looking forward to five exciting days of learning about God’s mission to save the world through His Son. Each day will include a Bible lesson, a craft project, games and a snack, work on our mission project, and music and worship together.
From creation to the cross, we have five life-changing Bible lessons to share with kids this year!
• God Made the Universe
• God Promises a Savior
• Jesus the Savior Is Born
• Jesus the Savior Is Risen
• Jesus the Savior Reigns
Our mission project this year will be packing shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child. These boxes are sent to children all over the world through Samaritan’s Purse. Over the past several years, boxes from Haran have gone to children in Colombia, Peru, Ghana, Togo, Angola, Zambia, and Burundi!
We invite families to be a part of this project by bringing small items to go in the shoeboxes: small toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, and accessories. (We cannot pack liquids, toothpaste, candy or food, or breakable items.) We will be collecting these items on Tuesday of VBS week.
Thursday, our last night of VBS, is Family Night. The kids will go to Bible study at 6:00, and then we’ll have our closing program in the sanctuary at 6:30. Parents and family members are invited to see the kids share what they’ve learned in VBS! Following the closing program, join us in the fellowship hall for refreshments and to pick up the kids’ craft projects.
We can’t wait to see you! Please drop your children off in the sanctuary at 6:00 p.m. each night and pick them up in the sanctuary at 8:00 p.m.

Can you sponsor a box? The kids are packing Operation Christmas Child boxes as their mission project, and we need sponsors who can help cover the $9 shipping charge for each box. If you’d like to donate, mark your gift “OCC postage.”
World Changers gives middle school, high school, and college-age students the opportunity to spend a week in another city where they will work on homes—roofing, painting, doing home repairs, etc.—while sharing the gospel with homeowners and the community.
A group of students is coming to Roanoke in July and we have the opportunity to provide lunches and snacks for them on July 9-12. Thank you to those who are helping and to those who have donated snacks and drinks! Keep this group of students in prayer that they will be able to serve homeowners well and effectively communicate the gospel.
A/V Help Needed!
We’re looking for more audio/visual operators for our Sunday services. If you’re interested in helping, please see Anna Ruth or Steve Smith. We’d be glad for you to sit in on a service and see what’s involved.
