Many, many THANKS to everyone who helped make our “Deep Sea Discovery” VBS week such a great time! We had 22 children, mostly from the community, attend and have a great time learning songs, making crafts, playing games and learning bible stories that helped teach them that God KNOWS us, God HEARS us, God STRENGTHENS us, and, above all, God LOVES us! The theme for the week was from Genesis 28, “I will be with you and will watch over you wherever you go.” Indeed, God is with us wherever we go! Special thanks to Stephanie Creek, who served as the Director and as the Music Leader, to Bob Dunn and Betty Orta, who led the Storytelling, Debbie Wood, who planned and led Crafts, and William Creek, for leading the Games. Thanks to everyone who served as a Guide each night–Gerry Shiver, Dottie Copeland, Tom and Judy Barnes, Tara Freeman, Jessie Smith (who also planned and made all of the amazing decorations!). Thanks to Clarice Robinson, who helped lead music, and to Suzanne Cribb, who was there each night to help out in any way needed! Thanks to all the youth who helped out each night–Bradley, Serenity, Jackson, Tylik, Erin and Kara, plus the youth from Church of the Cross. Thanks to Jean Pope, Cecelia Montgomery and Penny Chandler for serving at the Registration Table each night. Thanks to Gen Alert for helping out with the Opening each night and to Church of the Cross for providing a meal one night. Thanks to the Men of the Church for providing a meal and providing the Ice Cream Social on the last night, and to the Women of the Church for providing a meal, as well. Thanks to Richard Pope, Wayne Cribb, and Lesley Abbott for taking great pictures each night. Enjoy a few of them below! (If I have left anyone out by name, please accept my apologies and know it is not intentional. I tried to remember everyone…it takes a whole host of us to make this week happen and we are so grateful for everyone’s help!).
