Today at the First Methodist Church of Crystal Lake a pitch was made for Vacation Bible School.
At least that’s what it used to be called.
And, from the bulletin board display, it looks as if it’s still called that.
For years now, the one at our church has had a theme.
This year’s seems to be based on a theme park.
There are tickets for each day of the week to
SonWorld Vacation Park
The daily themes are
1- Choose to Believe
2- Choose to Act
3- Choose Forgiveness
4- Choose to Obey
5- Choose Jesus
I get to take pictures.
It’s scheduled for June 23-27.
Talking about it at the 11 o’clock service, youth leader Ryan Dunn said 500 kids attend. I sense there were some gasps from those deeply involved, because he quickly said he meant about 300.
Needless to say, it is a massive undertaking. It fills the entire church, which is one of the larger ones in Crystal Lake, as well as being the oldest congregation.
If you would like to enroll your kids or grandchildren, call 815-459-0785 and ask for Lisa Bischoff, the Director of Children’s Ministries.
