During the week of June 13-17, we had 34 children ages preschool to fifth grade participate in a week filled with worship, Bible study, games, crafts, and more! Four counselors came from Good Earth Village to lead our school-aged children from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., while our preschoolers were led by congregational volunteers in a 9 a.m. –noon program. A highlight for many was a field trip to Good Earth Village on Thursday with a family potluck and worship service back at Good Shepherd in the evening.
Thank You, Volunteers!
We had many volunteers who donated their time as assistants, teachers, lunch and snack shoppers, lunch and snack organizers, and youth assistants. We also had people who provided food for lunches and breakfasts and gave monetary scholarship donations as well as a family who hosted the Good Earth Village counselors.
We want to say a big thank you to everyone who made VBS week possible, especially:
Shannon Buchholtz, Missy Brenhaug, Karen Carlson, Lisa Feenstra, Lonnie Fynskov, Bart and Wendy Hanson, Helen Hendrickson, Joann Holt-Angerman, Rita and Steve Howe, Molly Jepsen, Colin and Sara Lange, Amy Mohr, Glennis Pearson, Tristan Pearson, Sandy Schultz, Michelle Schlicht, Erin Sinwell, Kim Taylor, and Pastor Carl-Eric; and youth helpers, Rubie Garrison, Gracie Killian, Annika and Owen Schroeder, Amber and Amanda Torvund, and Greta Van Loon.
Your help provided all involved a chance to grow in faith!
