Ending the Summer Strong- VBS

We kicked off our week of Vacation Bible School (VBS) last night with a great turnout of kids! I helped out with registration, and I think the tally was 41 kids... I had to laugh because about 24 of them were 1st through 12th grade, and 17 were pre-K! That's a lot of little ones running around! It will be fun to see how our church keeps growing as all these families grow with the births and development of all these little ones.
The registration table with Pastor Jon (green shirt) and Joy (pink shirt) our AWANA and VBS director (and me making a weird face).

Kids gathering in the fellowship hall on the way to the opening assembly.

Jan, Jennifer, and Jackie making up some mini pizzas that smelled so good.

Matt did a great job with his first time leading a youth VBS, with lots of fun games, dancing along to the music/choreography they learned, and a great message about the strength we have from within as believers in Christ. The kids have been so excited about having a new pastor, and a couple of them said they would be bringing friends to our session tonight. I think this will hopefully be a great week for these kids and a great end to the summer!
