A note from Melissa Willis. . .
Vacation Bible School… When we say those words there are many different emotions that we all feel. Vacation Bible School is a unique week that brings a church family together as we serve and share the love of Jesus with the children of our community.
We had a fabulous week on our Mission to Mars. We fueled up on FAITH, BOLDNESS, KINDNESS, THANKFULNESS, and HOPE as we l earned about Daniel, Esther, the ten Lepers, and Jesus and how to be followers of Jesus in our everyday lives. We averaged 370 children and leaders throughout the week. We experienced God as we played, used science to understand the message from the day, worshiped each day, created works of art, learned our songs for worship in music, engaged with the Bible lesson with dramatic storytelling, and enjoyed the company of our new friends over a fun snack.
We set our hearts towards helping our neighbors here in Augusta and to help our missionary friends the Sizemores in Honduras help their neighbors through Mission on the Move ministries. We collected $780.00 that will be split equally with the two mission ministries for use for back to school needs for children. Thank you to our families and leaders for giving so generously.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and those that donated their items for decorating purposes. To those who brought food for our hospitality room for our volunteers throughout the week, thank you for making a special and scrumptious time for them to relax for a few short minutes during their VBS days.
To the church family as a whole, THANK YOU for making children a priority through your prayerful support of VBS and all of our faith formation events. We are blessed by your generosity to be able to provide excellent experiences to enhance children’s faith formation.
With Joy and Thanksgiving,
