Vacation Bible School
It is difficult to find the words to sum up how awesome Vacation Bible School was this past week. Again this year, we had a fantastic group of kids eager to learn and to have fun, and we had a fabulous team of volunteers who pitched in wherever it was needed to make things happen. Thanks be to God for this opportunity to show so many the love of Jesus!
I expect that we have a lot of tired folks this week catching up on chores and such at home (and maybe even a little sleep). So many of you not only gave your time and your talent to VBS but also sacrificed your ability to rest, to enjoy the summer days, and to simply take care of your own business. Your sacrifices for VBS do not go unnoticed or unappreciated. I pray that, even as you made your sacrifices last week, you were blessed by your time with the kids and with other volunteers. I know there are moments that I spent teaching the lesson to the kids that I will remember for a long time because they opened my eyes and taught me even more. Likewise, I thoroughly enjoyed the time that I had to talk with many of you as we passed in the hallway or chatted in gym. I am exhausted this week, but my cup still runneth over with the blessings of a week well-lived.

As always, blessings on the journey, Pastor Jim
