Tomorrow is Water Day!

Although VBS week is half over, we still have lots of fun and games planned. The back hill of Heritage Church will be transformed into a huge water slide in the morning. Tomorrow is the ever popular water day!  Wear your swim suit under your clothes, bring a dry change and don't forget your towel! Make sure mom lathers you up with sunblock too!

Here is a copy of today's take home paper if yet another set has been lost at sea!

What a Day!

We had a great time today at Operation Overboard. Thank you for letting your child spend the day with us.  In case your child's take home papers were lost at'll find a copy below.

Something not listed on the take-home paper is that we have a certified deep sea diver and underwater photographer, Donna Johnston at VBS. She'll be sharing a little about diving, showing us her diving equipment and sharing about God's great underwater creation. She promises to bring some of her photographs this week too.  I've seen some and they are too cool. Amazing actually.

Tomorrow's color of the day is Red and it is Crazy Day.  The kids love this theme but if your child feels uncomfortable, no worries.  We're here to have fun, make friends, and learn a little about what the Bible teaches us about God.
Can't wait to see you tomorrow!

VBS 2008 Fun!

Monday, July 7, 2008

Heritage VBS Fun!

Above is the VBS Slide Show. It is a glimpse of the over 100 people (children, their families, and youth and adult volunteers) that attended VBS to learn that Jesus is our Forever Friend! I lost my camera which has more photographs yet to be downloaded (please pray that I find it!). Many volunteers, children and activities aren't in the slide show. I have the most photos of water day. If any one has photos of the week, especially the picnic and the kids singing in Church on Sunday, please send them to me to add here.

Thank you to all the families who let their children attend. And, thank you to all the volunteers both teen and adult. This vital ministry wouldn't have been possible nor would it have been so much fun with out each of you.

Please feel free to leave your comments regarding VBS. Parents, kids, and volunteers are all welcomed to leave their impressions of the week.

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his
life for his friends. You are my friends.- John 15: 13-14
