Our last night of Vacation Bible School, the Grand Finale’ will be at 7:00 PM in the sanctuary of St. Paul. It has been a great week, “Wild About Jesus.” As every year, there are new faces and old faces. It has been a fun filled week. As with any adventure, it comes to an end here in the churches of UMC and St. Paul, I do believe the children and the adults will be sharing the story of what was found here, Jesus. “One day children were brought to Jesus in the hope that he would lay hands on them and pray over them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.” After laying hands on them, he left. Matthew 19:14-15 The Message
And as this adventure ends, another begins. Three days from now a group will be leaving for Perryville, Arkansas to spend a week on the Heifer International Ranch. We will say ‘good-bye’ to Bossie and her sister, Bessie, who will be returning to greener pastures until they are needed to assist with fund raising again. They did a great job! I do believe, over all, the people of the UMC community enjoyed hosting them over the summer.
Time to look towards the fall and the changes in routine that comes with school beginnings and summer vacation endings. I am so excited to share the beginning of a Bible Study series that will be held on Sunday evenings. We will begin in the New Testement with the book of Matthew.
