CPC e-news for July 17, 2015
Greetings from Buckhorn, KY! 3 youth and 6 adults arrived last evening to spend a weekend helping this church and small community assist with the leadership of their VBS on Saturday. Last night we were treated to a feast prepared by some of the church members. Today we have set up for the VBS which takes place tomorrow, and tonight there will be a dinner for families and a movie. Sunday worship will be a review of the VBS activities followed by lunch. There is a lot of laughter among our group which indicates that everyone is doing well. The Buckhorn Church appreciates that items for the thrift store and the generous donations that allow the church to minister to the needs of the community.
