What an incredible week! Our prayers from Sunday have been answered with a whopping 400 children registered for Vacation Bible School. Story after story being told already about this week shows how much the children (teens and adults, too!) are learning about the stories of the Bible and how to live following Jesus. My favorite part is to see the children sing praises to God with all of the energy they can muster. A big THANK YOU to all of our VBS volunteers! Everyone can be a part of the VBS Celebration in worship at 11 am this Sunday. At 9:45 am, we will be also have much to celebrate as we send-off the High School mission trip. I hope to see you then!
On a different note, I did want you to know that after much hard work, prayer and discernment, the Room to Bloom Committee and our Church Council has decided that we do not have enough children to move forward with this ministry this fall. The Room to Bloom Committee will continue to meet and is considering other creative ministry opportunities with the preschoolers of our church and community. Another need for preschool ministry in the summer has come to our attention, so we will be considering this opportunity for the future. I so appreciate the countless hours, prayers and faithfulness to this ministry by the Room to Bloom Committee and so many in our church family. We continue to experience in many ways how God is faithful and present even as we have made this tough decision. I continue to covet your prayers daily as we strive to be a church for the community.
See you Sunday!
