Vacation Bible School
The theme of our VBS this year was, “God’s Wonder Lab”. Each day the kids learned about the miracles of Jesus. Was it science? Was it magic? No! It was Jesus showing his love for us!
The kids, youth helpers, and adult volunteers all had a great time! Thank you to all.
Eleven students received attendance awards this year during the church service on Rally Day. During Sunday School we hosted a Scripture Carnival that included four booths. The topics were; David and Goliath, Parable of the Sower, Fishers of Men and Noah’s Ark. At each station, the teachers told the story and the students participated in the activities that included; shooting Goliath with a slingshot, planting seeds, a boat race and a fishing game. A fun time was had by all! Thank you to Keri, Dave, Becky, and Jacquie!
The Youth Group had a sleepover on September 15th. They played games, watched movies, started the bulletin board, and ate. Thank you to Becky and Michelle who spent the night and Mike and Gary for bringing food.
Their future plans include; a skate party, the rummage sale and completion of the bulletin boards.
The Rummage sale will be held on November 4th, and their ideas for raising money are, a silent auction, bake sale, and a 50/50 drawing.
We are currently raising funds to help our youth attend the next gathering in New Orleans!
