On August 30, we enjoyed an extra special evening for the last Park & Praise of the summer. It was the VBS Reunion and Carnival with lots of fun for kids and adults alike. There were concession treats, games with prizes, and a bounce house!
Our youth (grades 6-12) hosted the carnival games for the younger kids that came out. Only a week and a half before the event, we had just one youth volunteer signed up. There was a big need for helpers, and our youth sprang into action. We ended the event with 15 youth volunteers! Some of them were VBS Crew Leaders who had already spent a week of their summer serving these same kids. They were joyful, helpful, and ready to serve. God also provided three great men to volunteer and run our concessions. They were so helpful and so efficient. The families loved the extra treats!
In total, we had about 110 people join us for snacks, games, dinner, and worship. If you didn’t get a chance to join us this year, we would love to have you at our Wednesday night Park & Praise worship series next summer.
