The summer is a busy one for our kids, both in and out of church! At the time of this writing, many are helping to make VBS a special one for over 100 younger kids! A special blessing is seeing youth that have been a part of VBS as children now overseeing classes and activities, ensuring that the gift goes on, and on, and on. When they bring their friends to help out, you know you have a good thing going. It’s terrific to coordinate various ministries within the church. Working together we can accomplish lots!
Reaching beyond our walls, a small but hard-working crew fed a large group at St. Paul’s for the Normandy sponsored June lunch. We went through 172 buns, 200 bags of chips, 252 cookies, almost 50 lbs. of sloppy joes, and 15 lbs. of pasta salad! It’s safe to say that no one left hungry that day! GOOD WORK!!!
We’ll be assisting with grocery handout with BOGG Ministries on July 17.
Just so you know, it’s not all work for our young people – there are Nerf Blaster Challenges, swim days, and movie nights ahead!
Be in prayer for Student Life Camp in the Smokies July 23-27 as several of our kids and adults will be attending. The theme of the week is I AM, discovering the God and his purpose for our lives. With large worship settings, small group studies, concerts, special guests and the largest indoor water park in the Smoky Mountains, it is sure to be a great week!
