We had a total of 28 kids attend VBS this year. They would arrive and go to the Sanctuary for Music with the Youth and then break into 2 groups (K-2nd grade and 3-5thgrade) to go to their Bible lesson. After their lessons they would have crafts, where we made prayer journals, hard hats, kinetic sand, cross necklaces and construction bracelets that read “I dig Jesus.” Games were a huge hit; we had a lot of fun playing relay races and the last day water games. Each child received a snack and then we would go back to the Sanctuary to end the night, where we would review what we learned.
Our mission for VBS this year was Angels for the Elderly. We set a goal of $500. The kids did an amaz- ing job helping this cause. With their help we raised $728 and Missions doubled this amount. What a blessing
to be able to present this to Angels for the Elderly.
Our Volunteers did an amazing job and I couldn’t have pulled VBS off without them. They took each situation and showed the love of Jesus to each child. I think the amount of volunteer/child interaction was amazing. We had that one on one with each child when needed. Thank you all for your continued support and dedication.
What’s happening this month…
We haven’t been able to do much outside the church with our families, so an annual fishing derby out at Boy Scout Lake is what’s planned this month. This year’s derby is scheduled for July 10. Start time will be 10 am. We will have everyone sign up. When they catch their fish, they will bring it up to be measured. (length)
The first catch, smallest and biggest fish will receive a prize. We will serve hotdogs and chips at noon for lunch and finish the derby at 2pm.
