Record-Number of Children Last Weekend at VBS!
Check out these stats from Week 1 of Quest VBS:
- 1,176 children attended (a record-number for us!)
- 23 new families
- Donations totaled $1,351.76. The mission project is to raise $2,500 for a well for clean water in Africa. We are more than halfway to our goal already.
With all these great things in mind, we are in need of more team members this weekend (August 2nd and 3rd) as we prepare for week 2 of Quest VBS.
PLEASE go to the online scheduler and plug yourself in or contact me or just come on in if you can help any time this weekend. We need YOU!
We have a big need at all of the services this weekend. This is the order of where we have the biggest need first:
- Saturday 5:00pm
- Sunday 9:00am
- Sunday 11:00am
- Sunday 5:45pm
Next, if you are serving this weekend please do the self-check in as usual and print your name tag. The VBS name tags are only for the new VBS volunteers.
This weekend we are focusing on, God is our provider. As we share this truth with the children we are going to show them that God provides the flowers and birds.
All the children will get to decorate a flower pot this weekend. The 4s and 5s will plant the flowers in their decorated pots during adventure time. The 3s will go back to their classroom after large group to complete their activities in the classroom.
We will continue to have our Large group time in “The City” during VBS. YAHOO!!!!
We really, really could use the extra helping hands this weekend so if you are available for any service this weekend please let me know or add yourself in to the schedule online.
To prepare for this weekend’s exciting activities please do your best to arrive 35 minutes before the start of service and meet us in the yellow room. This extra time in our huddle should help everyone have a better understanding of how things will run and look different from our normal weekends.
Thank you for your dedication to God’s little ones, we cannot do this without you and YOU are making a HUGE difference in the lives of others. I am so grateful to have you on our team! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
BIG hugs and much love, Jill Shea
