Vacation bible school
Just wanted to post & brag on our cummunity. I live in a small town of 900 with 3 different denomination of churches. Four yrs. ago, due to declining enrollments, someone got the idea to combine for a community vacation bible school. It's held at a different church every year with all three planning it and helping with teaching, donating food, & preparing. Volunteers from all churches help and each church is responsible for whatever foods are needed according to the menu. Also a monetary donation is asked for by each church and the extra is donated to a cause which the kids get behind. Last year was Heifer International and this year it was something to do with saving the honeybees.
On the last day/evening the kids put on a program for everyone. It's really great to see what they have learned & hear them sing their songs. About 90 to 100 kids were involved this year with 18 Jr. High kids. Amazing. So much hard work for such a rewarding cause with no squabling - just praising Jesus. Kids love it.
