VBS: Mercy Edition

Mercy Bible 3

Vacation Bible School:  Mercy Edition
July 6 – August 20

Prepare for the upcoming Year of Mercy with Daily Theology by exploring the theme throughout scripture.  Impress all the other kids with your ability to “love mercy” even before the jubilee begins in November!  Bonus materials:  we’ll probably touch on how to “act justly” and “walk humbly,” too.
