Trinity Baptist Church to have Vacation Bible School

June 14, 2013

BROADWAY BAPTIST CHURCH
It is summer and people are vacationing. Some will drive hundreds of miles, get out of the car, stand by the car and take a picture while others will simply go visit family and friends. Still others will get on a plane and fly through the open skies. If you are one of those who will fly (by the way, I love flying) have you ever given thought to the pilot’s job? He has but one — Get his passengers safely to their destination. Through bright sunshine, clouds or thunderstorms the pilot’s responsibility never changes — get you to your destination safely.
