Our annual summer week of VBS has come and gone and was enjoyed by all! Adults, teens, and children de-scended on St. Clare’s the first week of August to learn about EVEREST: Conquering Challenges with God’s Mighty Power and to celebrate God’s love. The children learned that God has the power to provide, comfort, heal, forgive, and love us forever.
Thank you to all of the adults and teens who volunteered their time for the week, as well as before with meetings and preparations.
We teamed up once again with Lynnewood Methodist Church, and half of our teen volunteers came from St. Clare’s Preschool staff families. We hosted close to 50 children, half of whom were previous and current pre-school attendees. Staff and children alike kicked up their heels to catchy songs like Power Shuffle and My God is so Great. This year’s Operation Kid To Kid that helped collect money to buy bibles for children in Thailand was successful in raising over $200! That will buy more than 50 bibles for needy children! The biggest success was having yet another year of children leaving with smiles plastered across their faces, ready to share God’s love with others. Thank you again to all of you that helped in any way, we couldn’t have done it without you!
