VBS:  What an Awesome Week!!

Thank you once again to everyone for their prayers and support for Vacation Bible School!  Spirit-filled energy exuded from 76 children throughout this wonderful week of learning!  God’s love is for all and Jesus helps us get to know God and how to live so we share God’s love with others! 

Thank you to everyone who donated supplies and provided scholarships, and thank you – thank you to the 75 on-site volunteers and to all 100+ people who helped in some way!  What an amazing group of people you all are!! We are blessed to be a place of intergenerational learning and celebrate being people of God in the world.  Thank you, children and parents for blessing us with your presence and eagerness for learning, and thank you volunteers for blessing us and all of the children!

Our service project this year was for children to assemble Blessing Bags and then take the Blessing Bags with them to (with the guidance of parents/guardians) give to someone in need.  This allows children to see their acts of care take place first hand.  For our VBS Special Offering, $134 was donated to the ELCA Fund for Leaders scholarship program to help support people becoming pastors and deacons. 

Mark your calendars for next year, VBS 2024 will be July 8-12 & Sunday July 14.
