Vacation Bible School has come, and it has gone. We had a wonderful group of kids that came and sang and learned that God made them, God listens to them, God watches over them, God loves them no matter what, and God gives good gifts. They sang, they danced, they played, they learned, and they even spent time in the belly of a whale! Can you imagine what we'll do next year?!
To all our volunteers, teachers, helpers and leaders - Martha, Tabitha, Mary Vay, Gayle, Kay, Brenda, Jean, Bill, Karen, Karen, Miles, Grace Anne, Annie, Abby, Josey, Jake, Jeanne, Ken, Alan, and Sara - I give you a hearty, "WELL DONE AND THANKS!" And to my wife, Samantha, I must give a special thank you for organizing and running a fantastic VBS week. The decorations are still up in the Parish Hall, and I hope that everyone will come by and see the pandas, the posters and our new "Old Rugged Cross" which was lovingly hand crafted by Frank and Peggy Ragland from antique wood donated by Barry and Connie Rambin. Also, a special thanks to Sims Brown for cleaning the carpet so quickly and so well.
To the parents and grandparents of our attendees, I say thank you for sharing your children and grandchildren with us over the past five days. We have all be blessed by our time together, and we are all looking forward to doing it again next year.
