We have had a terrific week of Bible School. Thanks to all who organized, helped, and attended. A special thanks to Lori Strickler, our organizer. The Photo Gallery on the left panel of the screen has a slide show of the week's activities.  A follow up for our "Inside Out and Upside Down on Main Street" Bible School week will be held on Sunday, August 21, 2011 at 2:00 PM.  Maybe we'll get to sing "G-R-A-C-E" one more time together.
Here are Lori's comments from Gabriel's Horn, our church newsletter:


VBS 2011



            It is hard to believe that this year’s VBS is over. Justin Time, Chef Pierre, and Heidi Claire have boarded the bus and left town. I am sure they left town with many great memories just as they left behind many memories for us to remember.

          Many children attended this year’s VBS and had a wonderful time learning about gratitude, compassion, forgiveness, grace, and faithfulness. They learned this by attending our Parable Productions, singing music, making a craft in our Fun Factory, eating a snack at the Brown Bag Bistro, and receiving a workout at the Firehouse Fitness Station.

          On behalf of the Children’s ministry THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered to help with decorating, presenting the Bible lessons, our actors, helping with music and the soundboard, preparing the snacks every evening, organizing the games, taking pictures, leading our crafts, and our crew leaders for walking with the children every evening. Many hours go into planning and organizing this event and it is wonderful to come together and minister to the young children the way we do. Thank you for your prayers and support as we continue to do God’s work this way each summer.
