Pala Indian Reservation VBS

Date: August 12, 2017

Time: Arrive at the Old Pala Tribal Hall by 9am. We plan to leave by 4:30pm.

Location: At the Old Pala Tribal Hall located about 1 ½ hours away from Anaheim (“Pena Road & Pala-Temecula Road” - Complete directions will be sent by email)

Transportation: We will not be arranging carpool or group transportation. However, you are more than welcome to carpool amongst your fellow team members.

Temperatures can be in the 90’s with no air conditioning so dress appropriately. Also, any fans or Ez-ups that you are able to bring down will be much appreciated to help make the day cooler for everyone. We will be having a hydration station with ice and water.

Last year, we ministered to over 80 attendees who live on the Pala Indian Reservation, ranging in age from preschoolers and babies all the way to the adults. Last year, we had 7 adults who made first-time decisions for Jesus. One of these decisions was made by a man, who was brought to the event especially to talk to a pastor by his wife, who was already a Christian.
