VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 2015 – Can you imagine it? It's rather difficult to imagine Vacation Bible School with an inch or two of snow on the ground. I'm imagining a summer’s evening at our church filled with children, singing new VBS songs, learning news stories about God, sticky hands covered in glue or glitter... lots of laughter and smiling faces. There is a great deal that goes on months before this scene ever happens, and that is why I am asking you to consider becoming a VBS team leader. As the new Christian Education Elder, I promise to support this team in every way I can, and I know we will be eagerly supported by our new associate pastor. Please pray on this and contact me if you think this may be your calling. In the meantime, I will be praying too. Kim Champagne, Christian Education Elder, kim.champagne@gmail.com
