VBS Countdown

Well, it is finally here...Vacation Bible School. Last night was the first night... and it is funny. We count down the days until it arrives and then we all walk around going, "Only 4 more night!" As I finally got to bed last night I realized that it isn't that we want it to be over quickly...it is just that it is very demanding! It takes a lot of volunteers to make a VBS program work, and at GCC we have some really awesome people willing to make this event a success.

This year our two volunteer directors, Angie and Michelle, have done a fantastic job... I managed to make it from my classroom in time to see Kim, Bobby and Jeremy do their thing, and all of the kids said that the lesson with Denise, Stephanie and Sha was awesome. Games???? Well let's just say that there weren't many dry kids around!!! And our craft crew...they have cooked up some projects that will serve as a reminder to the children of the lessons they learned. Our snack crew took care of not only the kids but the volunteers as well. And our preschool - K staff did an awesome job... they had so many children it was unreal!!!! We also have a tech crew, and floaters, and a registration team.... and there are more that I am sure that I have forgotten... without everyone this just couldn't run as smoothly as it did last night!!!

All in all I would say that we have one of the best VBS programs around, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a caring group of adults and teens. Their desire to teach these children about God and his love is so evident in all that they do... heaven is surely rejoiceing this week!!!!
