First Presbyterian Church, Demopolis, held VBS the week of June 8-12. “God blessed us with a wonderful week with an awesome staff and fabulous students!” said Rev. Tommy Carr, Pastor. “We solved the Case of the Wilderness Wanderers and through our detective work we learned how God’s people are delivered from our sins, dependent on Him for salvation, find our direction in Jesus, disciplined for our own good, and that He dwells among his people.”

Fifty-seven children attended throughout the week with an average daily attendance of 43.  Classes were held for students ages 4 through 6th grade where they enjoyed assembly time,  puppets, music, Bible classes, memory work, arts and crafts, recreation, and snack time.
