Pray For This Year’s Hispanic VBS

Monday, July 22–Thursday, July 25, 9:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

Please pray that the families in and around our immediate area who are completely unfamiliar with Dawson and our Hispanic Congregation will entrust their children to us this week and that the children will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
