"It's the most wonderful time of the year..."
- Andy Williams
Vacation Bible School is one of the best times of the year at Faith UMC. During VBS week, we host a week-long party that is attended by 150 children from all around the community. (Yes, it's true. We Hulk-smashed all attendance records this year.) It's a time when our physical space is transformed - this week into a superhero theme. It's a time when our church family comes together to serve children and families from all around our community. It's a time when our church walls are bursting from all the activity and energy of children! Over the last few days, I've heard numerous stories of parents sharing what Vacation Bible School means for them. They're amazed by the physical presentation of our church facility and dedication of our volunteers. Their children love our VBS and look forward to each night. They appreciate the care with which we offer this free program to bless their children. They also appreciate the opportunity for their children to be part of a mission project that will bless other children around the world.
So, thank you. Thank you to everyone who donated VBS items. Thank you to everyone who helped with decorations. Thank you to all of our helpers and volunteers, who taught, shepherded, and loved children this week. Thank you to everyone for your prayers - for the children, for their families, for the VBS leaders. It's been an amazing week. You are all super-heroes. Praise God for faithful heroes like you!
