A Vacation Bible School Thank You
We had a wonderful week together celebrating and exploring the beautiful and glorious world God has created and have gone away with a renewed sense of mission to preserve and protect “God’s Good Earth” and the creatures who inhabit it.
We were blessed to have leaders and parents who designed remarkable crafts from recycled materials, prepared healthy snacks using the day’s activity and theme, musicians leading the children in songs extolling God’s magnificent creation, nurses who travelled with us on our field trips, many who offered their homes and gardens, those who led hikes, taught us about seeds, water conservation, recycling, and caring for our shelter animals. Others worked “behind the scenes” baking cookies, designing T-shirts and banners, drilling holes in water bottle caps, and helping with paperwork and materials. Our Friday night cookout wouldn't have been complete without "Men who Grill" and volunteers!
Thank you everyone!
