Letter: Thanks for making vacation Bible school a success

By on July 21, 2011

Last week marked the end of our annual Vacation Bible School at Elburn Community Congregational Church.

Director of Christian Education Theresa Biddle organized and produced a delightful weeklong adventure at the Shake It Up Cafe for children in the community. Youth Group Leader Jessie VanDevelde got kids excited with fun songs and dances, while Games Leader Karen Diesel kept them active and busy even in the sweltering heat. Char Hiebert and Regina Kurth replenished the children’s energy with healthy snacks. Pastor Michelle Prentice-Leslie took the children on a journey through the history of God’s people during Bible Story, and Craft Leader Barb Holloman showed kids that it’s OK to get a little messy while learning about God.

VBS this year would not have been possible without help from many community members, but especially the kids. Everyone involved enjoyed the week and cannot wait for next year.
