Each year we choose a theme for Vacation Bible School and this year we chose Maker Fun Factory. We introduced children to the God who made them, and who loves them and who is always with them and throughout the week saw lots of young hearts opening up to Him. It’s our prayer that as these children continue to grow up, they will also continue to grow closer to God.
VBS volunteers are the best! We can’t thank them enough for all the work they did, but everything that was done was done out of love for God and the children. With their help it was one of the best Vacation Bible Schools ever. This year we registered over 1,300 children and had 342 adult and 187 teen volunteers — that’s a total of 529 volunteers! Thank you!
Due to your generosity, we were once again able to provide snacks, food, crafts, games, songs and Bible lessons free of charge to all the kids who came to VBS. Thank you!
Jake & Taneille Lowe (with their children Aubrey, Logan, Alivia, Lydon, Ayla, Ledger) are headed back to Ethiopia to spread the love of God to a place we’ll probably never go, to a people we’ll probably never meet. We’re thrilled to partner with them in the spreading of God’s love and happy to report that our VBS mission offerings to support them totaled over $5,000!
We also collected several boxes of much needed items for the kids in Nationwide Children’s Hospital to help them pass the time and make their stay there a little easier.
A very special thanks to our VBS Directors and their families who plan, prepare and pray for this event all year long.
We appreciate you and all you do! Your servant hearts and humble leadership are a blessing to the VBS children and their families, the entire church and the community we are seeking to reach.
