God’s Promises for you! was the theme of our 2002 Vacation Bible School (VBS), held this past August 19th to 23rd. The Lord blessed our preparations by sending 13 children to spend five mornings with us, being built up in His promises, singing songs and doing crafts. See some pictures of our learning, singing, and fun!
We look forward to seeing many of our VBS students and others in Church (11am, Sundays) and at our weekly children’s evening Bible School, which is scheduled to begin the week of Sept. 9th (the specific date is to be announced — please contact us for more information).
Many thanks to everyone involved, especially teachers Taylor R., Paige R., Robin R., Linda D. and Pastor Milette, as well as to our craft person Doris M. and helpers Ichiko (Peggy) L. and Sigrid B. Thanks also to Vicar Bill Stanfel and his family, Pastor Milette, and Ichiko (Peggy) L. who were responsible for the distribution of nearly 2,000 invitations to our VBS to the neighbourhoods surrounding our church!
