Vacation Bible School
Just a couple of weeks after the school year ends for my kids, they will be attending VacationBible School at the Mt. Pleasant Community Church. This year the theme is “Sonshine Farm,”and if its anything like the VBS they put on a couple of years ago, I think that Josh and Kaylaare going to have a great time.This year is bittersweet because this is actually the last year that Kayla will be able to attendVBS as a participant. I’m hoping that she’ll stay active in the future by volunteering, but onceshe is in the 7th grade she will be passed the VBS age. Josh, on the other hand, has a fewmore years left.The last time they attended, the theme for the MPCC’s VBS was “Knights and princesses,” and Iwas thoroughly impressed by the way they decorated the inside of the church and producedtheir programs. You could tell that a lot of effort had gone into it, with a lot of help fromvolunteers. We were still new attendees of the church, and as I remember it was their VBS theprevious year to that which helped to attract us.I have to admit I’m a little jealous. Vacation Bible School when I was Josh and Kayla’s ageconsisted of mostly memorization and walking around outside in robes. Or, maybe it was justthe attitude I had about having to go to any kind of event ending with the word “school” when Iwas supposed to be enjoying my summer vacation. I’m grateful to the church for putting on anevent that my kids will definitely be excited about. Along those lines, I wanted to give other churches in the community the opportunity to promotetheir Vacation Bible Schools or other events coming up in the summer.
