Vacation Bible School 2016

In August, FUMC hosted 64 children ages 3 years to 5th grade and their families at Vacation Bible School. Kids learned how God gives us hope, wisdom, special abilities, forgiveness and family. The setting was Egypt, and groups visited several stations as they learned about Joseph and life in Egypt: Joseph's prison cell and palace home, an Egyptian market place, and the Pyramid Playground. Kids got to make bricks and Egyptian-like jewelry, learned to weave baskets and wrote letters to children for Operation Christmas Child.
