2016 Vacation Bible School Highlights
Egypt: Joseph’s Journey From Prison to Palace transformed our church into parts of Egypt last week! Our sanctuary became a palace, where we met twice a day to sing fun songs, learn Bible points and verses, share some “God-sightings” and have a time of prayer. Our gym was a bustling Market Place, full of various crafts, a food shop, and a missionary shop. Outside were both the Animal Courtyard and the Brick-Making Shop – good place for them, don’t you think? Other parts of the church provided small group homes for several Egyptian families. The Upper Room became Joseph’s prison cell, and then it became the palace, where Daniel Mergener, Rick Sederlund and Blaine Wheaton shared drama and memories of Joseph during this incredible time in biblical history. All in all, it was an awesome week, and according to staff, some parents, and even some of the long-time-attending kids, perhaps the best one in a long time!
A special thanks goes to our VBS Director team: Sue Shoultz and Joyce Showerman, who have been meeting since January to plan everything. They want to thank YOU, our FUMER Family, for your generous monetary donations that made VBS happen. VBS is very expensive, but we know that it is worth every penny spent in bringing children to Christ and the church. You gave $2730.50, which included a generous donation given in memory of Paul Kerekes! Those extremely generous gifts helped make this year’s VBS possible, with some left over for next year. Praise God!
