Night number one of Big Apple Adventure VBS is in the books. I have only two words: Chaotic Beauty. It is an amazing thing to see how months of planning come together. It is amazing to see teachers and other volunteers serving in areas in which they have a passion for. It is as equally amazing to watch children invade the church campus and make themselves at home. Our first night was a good one. We had an opportunity tonight to meet new families and strengthen existing relationships. Although our number are not final, we had approximately 120 present tonight. I was especially proud of the nearly 50 adults who were involved in Adult VBS.
Students were challenged tonight to Connect with Faith. Our students studied the story, in missions, music, and crafts, of the centurion who reached out to, and trusted Jesus by faith. A big thanks goes out to our two summer student missionaries (Crystal and Mandy) working with Low Country Ministries who led our music tonight. Great job. A big thanks as well to our VBS Director (Nancy Duncan) who helped to pull everything together and keep things on track. Great job. I look forward to tonight and what day number two holds. God is most definitely good and we are expecting Him to do great things this week.
