Beach Party Surfin the Word of God!


We had a great time at VBS this year playing games, making crafts, singing songs, listening to stories, and learning Bible verses. We averaged over 80 kids a day with 20 youth helpers and 25 adults. Many of our kids come from day cares and do not got to church regularly. We started a program this year called Kids Helping Kids and our offering goal was to raise $500 for Lillie who is undergoing 42 weeks of chemotherapy in her fight against Rhabdomysarcoma, a rare type of cancer. At the end of the week we had raised over $868 to help this family. I thought this was a great way to show our kids that every penny can count to help someone who is need. I am always glad to help for VBS and that the children have fun going, but I am also glad when the week is over and we can get back to normal. By Friday everyone was exhausted and I was happy to turn on our Friday night movie.
