Vacation Bible School (photos)

[dropcap1]V[/dropcap1]acation Bible School was held the week of June 24-28, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. to noon.  Our theme this year was The Peaceable Kingdom and it focused on an anti-bullying message using characters from popular children’s books.

Thanks so much to everyone who helped with our “Peaceable Kingdom” VBS! Over 40 kids showed up each day to sing songs, play games, make crafts, and hear stories related to bullying and how we can help to prevent it. Next time you are at church, please check out our bulletin board of photos in the hallway — as you will see, we had a great time!

We are grateful to so many people who helped. Marilyn Chapman, Cori Hasden, Sandra and Hannah Riddle, Kyle Sewell, and Christian Lee all led activities. Several EYC members helped to “shepherd” our young children: Chloe Hasden, Hannah Harris, Maggie Lee, Landon Lewis, Jonathon Polcari, and Sophie and JT Veys. Susan Polcari and Martha Sewell helped us set up the week before VBS. And several parishioners donated food and supplies: Virginia Beckworth, Marilyn Chapman, The Lawsons, Kathy Maddux, Melissa McKown, Cheryl Roddy, and Marianne Wilson. We are so grateful to all our volunteers and know that we could not have pulled this off without you!
