A special thanks to all VBS volunteers! We all had a blast at the “Everywhere Fun Fair!” We learned that neighbors are friendly, neighbors are giving, neighbors, are bold and neighbors are forgiving. We also learned to love God with our whole heart, soul, strength and mind and to love our neighbors as ourselves! Thanks again to those who helped out. We couldn’t have done it without you! Especially, we would like to thank our codirectors this year for all of their time, energy, creativity and organization put into the fun fair. Thank you to Kelli Burnett, Debra Gantt and Meredith Greene. You are amazing! Some of the highlights of our week together included a daily visit from our feathered friend, Godwin, with interesting and fun facts from countries around the world. Our children enjoyed the koi pond in Japan, playing the drums in Zimbabwe, new words and phrases and games from United Kingdom and all the messy – hands on projects in Australia. The Bible stories came to life each night as children entered the Bible Bazaar and encountered the EPC players. Our mission emphasis this year was the Samaritan Health Clinic which is providing medical care to those in Easley who are in need. The children collected office supplies all week and will be able to make a generous donation of supplies. Our 5th Graders put their faith into actions as they served our church and our community all week long. Please take a trip by the Samaritan Health Clinic to see how they beautified the sign out front. They were also able to make a donation of over 200 can goods to United Christian Ministries after a can food scavenger hunt. Some adults and youth enjoyed getting started on our Habitat House and hope to continue to work together this summer. We ended the week with a cookout, singing and a great time at the Closing Carnival Celebration with fun, food and fellowship. What a great week at the Everywhere Fun Fair! Don’t forget to be a good neighbor to all of God’s children both near and far and to love God with your whole heart!!
