July 31 - August 4, 2017, 5:30 - 8:00 P.M.
This year VBS was held evenings!
The last week of July was decoration week. Many hours of love and labor were invested by the
team of about 30 workers!
Chalk is dirty!
Shortly after 5:00 p.m., the first of about 60 children arrived
The "bankers" gave kids a penny equivalent for their larger coins and currency.
They are giving to help establish a kids camp in South Jersey.
While half of the approximately 30 workers were thus occupied, the other half were
in the auditorium for last minute instructions from the leader, Missy Williams.
During the opening session with lively singing, the children placed their pennies
in two large buckets, a pink one for the girls and a blue one for the boys.
The "bankers" retreated to an office to count the pennies while the children
joined their groups for a lesson, refreshments, games and crafts
An average of over 60 kids attended evening for evening. Sunday evening was the
closing service with children, parents and friends. There were refreshments
