Over 500 alumni and friends gathered to celebrate 50 years of AFLBS ministry
Campus was bustling during the last weekend of July, with hundreds of friends and alumni gathering to reunite and fellowship with old friends and praise God for fifty years of faithfulness to the Association Free Lutheran Bible School.
“It truly was a joy to have so many alumni and friends make it a priority to come for the 50th Anniversary of AFLBS,” current Dean of AFLBS Pastor Joel Rolf said. “It was great to have so many families come with children and youth to enjoy the events planned for them. We praise the Lord for the many generous gifts given for scholarships, and look forward to helping many more students come study God’s eternal Word at AFLBS.”
The Bible. It wasn’t a trick question.
Did you go to Bible camp this summer? Or FLY 2015?
Take that time in the Word of God and multiply it by 64.
What if you could spend not just one week, but 64 weeks studying the Bible?
