The theme for this year's Vacation Bible School was Surf Shack and it was a success. There were nearly 40 children from four different churches in attendance. They were assisted by 75 youth and adults. Keeping with the beach theme, the children were challenged to bring in pennies to buy "crabby patties" for the Domestic Assault Shelter. By the end of the week, over $130 was raised!
Each evening started out with all of the children gathering in the sanctuary for an opening celebration. Then, groups rotated through different stations where they participated in Arts and Crafts, learned new songs, heard Bible stories, ate healthy snacks, and played games. An additional part of Arts and Crafts was the decorating of picture frames to be sent to people on the prayer list. The whole group gathered in the sanctuary at the end of each night.
A big Thank You to Karen Scheetz for planning and organizing this week of events. Thank you also to the many volunteers who helped in all aspects of a very successful week.
