Iglesia Presbiteriana Sola Escritura (OPC) in Guayama, Puerto Rico (part of the Presbytery of New Jersey) is eager to welcome individuals or a group to help with the church’s first Vacation Bible School, engage in opportunities for community evangelism, and possibly help complete tasks around the church property. The Vacation Bible School will take place for a week during summer 2024.

*Note: If you are a parent with younger children and want to come, your child can participate in the VBS and in this way you offer your child an unforgettable experience.
