Jenks, First will be the site for a weekend Vacation Bible School (VBS), July 29-30, designed to help foster care parents receive their annual required 12 hours of training, while their foster children enjoy VBS. Teri Blanton serves as Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children’s (OBHC) Foster Care Coordinator and is working with Jenks, First to provide this VBS experience.

The Baptist Messenger recently announced a week-long VBS will be at Oklahoma City, Rancho Village, July 11-16, for the same purpose of helping foster care parents.

Please note these VBS foster care events are limited to serve only Southern Baptist foster families who are already involved in foster care.  In the future, OBHC hopes to expand the scope of the VBS event to include foster care families in the community and across the state.

The VBS events have several needs, including

—At least 40 volunteers at each location to served in the VBS program;

—Donated VBS items related to the LifeWay “Submerged” theme; and

—Leftover VBS craft supplies

Email Alyson Walker at about VBS supplies.

To register or to volunteer for either event, visit or contact Blanton at 405/640-0622.
