Vacation Bible School Thank You
The theme this year was "Daniel, Living with Courage in Uncertain Times." Everyone had a great time enjoying a weekend of studying God’s Word through the book of Daniel. The youth enjoyed skits, singing songs, playing games, watching video snippets, and making crafts.
Thank you for the delicious meals provided by each of these Lutheran Women's Circles: Bonnie Bost, Kathy Ketchie, Hama Lingle, and Grace Ridenhour. Sunday, August 12, ended the VBS program with a Family Night, which includes the children singing, a hotdog and hamburger cookout provided by the Youth & Family Committee and Amy Barringer, Gina Barringer, Jamie Drew, Tim Free, Brent and Lisa Monroe, and Bethany Whisnant, with desserts provided by the parents and other church members.
Many, many "Thank You's" go to all who helped make VBS a success this year. George Barringer, Henry Barringer, Luke Barringer, Dana Bost, John Canup, Dan Funderburk, Grace Funderburk, Allyson Harkey, Evan Harkey, Matt and Lauren Holland, Lindsay and Judy Lowman, Rev. DJ Lura, Stan McConnell, Caleb Orbison, Alan Powlas, Garrett Powlas, Kenneth Whisnant, and Lauren Whisnant did a great job of making our stories come to life. Danielle Canup, Melissa Harkey and Donna Johnson inspired creativity with crafts. Steven Stringer, Allyson Harkey, and Brenda Julian helped bring out the inner talents with music. Dana Bost and Todd Harkey energized our kids with games. The kids enjoyed Tim Free sharing how the video snippets applied to every day life.
