CBF VBS Service Project

Posted on Jun 12 2018 - 8:03am

As most of you know, our church sponsor, Coppell Bible Fellowship Church, is very important to the existence of our troop and we give back to it by serving at outdoor functions.  On Friday, June 29th, CBF is hosting a picnic at the end of Vacation Bible School (VBS) and desperately needs our help.  We need one group of scouts to show up at 10:00 am to set up and another group at 12:00 noon to serve and clean up.  Please sign up now so we can plan accordingly.
