Special thank you to VBS volunteers

Published 2:05pm Tuesday, July 9, 2013

So often, a special group of individuals go unnoticed. They are those who are so faithful to work in vacation Bible school. This event takes a lot of responsibility to put together. As the director, they must find the workers and make sure transportation is provided for those who need it and a good time to have this event so that you have the workers. A large part of the workers are volunteers who take their vacation time during that week to work with our children.

They also spend hours planning lessons, activities and crafts. Therefore, the next time you see a VBS workers in your church, tell them how much you appreciate them.
