    Surprise, surprise, surprise! This is what our leader, Beulah Brown, deals with best! Her kindness and patience show through adversity (such as, when people don't show up).

  • OASIS group takes four-day outing to Wisconsin

    By Ginger Wells
    The OASIS group from First Baptist Church of Vandalia recently took a trip to Northern Illinois and Wisconsin.
    The theme of the trip was "Christmas in July." The group boarded the coach on Tuesday, July 15, and returned on Saturday, July 19.
    Each person brought bingo and Christmas grab bag gifts, and was anticipating a Christmas holiday – minus the snow and sleet. We got to know each other by playing games and singing.
