Free Vacation Bible School

"Weird Animals: Where Jesus' Love is One-of-a-Kind"

Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church will be hosting "Weird Animals," a free Vacation Bible School for children ages four to fourth grade graduates at Groton Grange Hall (located at 80 Champney St.) mornings July 7-11.

In the Bible stories each day, we will see Jesus' love in action as he heals a group of lepers, reaches out to a needy Samaritan woman, washes the disciples' feet and willingly goes to the cross.

We will dramatize these stories each morning when we gather together for our large group sessions.
