Victor Harbor Baptist Church
Sunday school has recommenced at the Baptist church after the holiday break.
There was some hearty singing as Pastor Riley Smith introduced some bright action songs.
The church has a dedicated band of teachers who undergo regular training in child protection to ensure a safe environment for the growing numbers of young people.
It’s a great opportunity for kids to hear about God and the world he has created and to learn life values and positive attitudes.
The church now needs larger facilities to cater for its growing congregation and young people’s ministry.
