GALACTIC STARVEYORS

DISCOVERING THE GOD

OF THE UNIVERSE

 

Discover the incredible mysteries of the final frontier -- right from your own backyard.  Your telescope becomes a portal through which you encounter amazing and wonderful things designed by a Creator who is even bigger than the vastness of His creation.  But the most amazing wonder to be discovered truly boggles the mind.  The God who created everything there is -- the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible -- wants a relationship with you!  And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we  would break.

BIBLE VERSE: He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities -- all things have been created through Him and for Him.  ~Colossians 1:15-16

There will be classes for Nursery, Pre-School, Kindergarten, 1st - 12th, Young Adults, and Adults...So there's a class for YOU!!!  Please fill out the VBS Online Registration Form or submit a printable form to ensure you are properly registered for this FREE recreational and educational event!
