Not your typical Community VBS this summer

Spread over five weeks this year's program takes place in your home

Drive-thrus aren’t just for fast food.

The pandemic-adapted Bluffton Community Vacation Bible School will lead children on a discovery of Who Is My Neighbor? Learning to Love Like Jesus over five weeks this summer. 

Children will complete each session in their own homes.

Spreading out VBS over the course of five weeks instead of five consecutive days is intended to give children and families something to look forward to throughout our pandemic summer days.

For a moment, 101.3 FM became Bluffton’s most listened to radio station Friday morning. 

That frequency, broadcasting for a range of about a half mile from The Centre, aired a prayer and meditation service focusing on Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio and specifically Mennonite Memorial Home.

An estimated audience easily reaching 150 people or more participated as over 75 vehicles were parked in The Centre’s north lot during the 11 a.m. community service.
