VBS Celebration Tomorrow

Tomorrow (Sunday, July 29, 2018), we’ll celebrate the successful completion of Vacation Bible School (VBS) by sharing a video montage of photos. If you want a copy of the video, just bring a thumb drive, and I’ll be happy to make a copy for you. For the sake of brevity during the worship service, I had to leave a lot of photos out, but if you want to see the extended cut with more photographs that’s available also.

Theatre Kids, Boy Scouts, and VBS, Oh My!

We had a great day at Abilene First UMC yesterday. The building was full of kids all day. We started off with Great Plains Theatre Camp in the morning and afternoon and Boy Scouts and Vacation Bible School (VBS) in the evening. I can’t speak for Great Plains Theatre or the Boy Scouts, but VBS is off to a great start! Thanks to everyone who has and is pitching in.

P.S. Just in case it wasn’t obvious, the title of this post is a reference to “Lions and tigers, and bears, oh my!” in the Wizard of Oz.

VBS Starts Tonight

The beginning of Vacation Bible School is a little less more than an hour away. If you aren’t otherwise participating, I encourage you to stop by and take a peek in the sanctuary. It is something to see. Wendy Robinson and Teresa Hudson (from Trinity ELCA) have outdone themselves.

Vacation Bible School Starts Tonight

A Friendly reminder that Vacation Bible School (VBS) starts tonight (July 20, 2015) at 6 pm. Supper will be served (for children and parents) until 6:30 pm. VBS itself will last until 9 pm Monday through Wednesday, with a pool party from 7:30 to 9 pm at Eisenhower Park on Thursday.

There will be a VBS work/craft night tomorrow, Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 5:30 pm at Emmanual United Methodist Church. This will be a time to get things set up and decorated for VBS and there will be dinner. Even a half-hour of your time would be appreciated.

Then on Sunday, June 1, 2014 there will be a Crash Course Training at 6 pm for all helpers and volunteers. This time will serve as an orientation and help make sure that everyone knows the plan and location of activities. Some volunteer positions are still available if you haven’t yet signed up.
