Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Kuwait Mar Thoma Sunday school is conducting Vacation Bible School (VBS) from June 10th onwards. Over the years VBS was instrumental in bringing the children closer to Jesus and had led many to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. It’s an unique opportunity for the children to learn about religion through fun, age appropriate activities. Also Life lessons help every child learn how to be a good person and a friend to others.

Greetings

Greetings to all Parish members who are celebrating their birthday and wedding anniversary.
