That is where this year’s construction-themed Bible School, “Building by the Blueprints,” comes in. During the week, boys and girls will participate in songs, games, the world-famous Penny March and, most importantly, will learn lessons about the Godly character trait of obedience. Free transportation available. Call 405-372-7444 or go to characterconnection.org to enroll
