Vacation Bible School
Welcome to Zoomerang! As we zoom around Australia, we’ll discover some amazing animals and sights!
More importantly, like a boomerang, we are returning kids to what the Bible says about the value of life.
We’ll discover how precious each and every one of us is to God. From the tiniest to the oldest, each person is made in the image of God, wonderfully designed to know him and to live for him! Out of his great love, God offers us salvation through his son, Jesus.
We will learn that life is valuable!
