Vacation Bible School
VBS has long been an important outreach for our church. In 2016, we partnered with the Baptist church of Farmington and the Yates City Presbyterian church. We were blessed with 82 kids, 22 teen helpers, food pantry donations, canned items and monetary donations to Adi’s Hearts. The children loved the food, music, crafts, recreation, learned about God’s power and had a wonderful time.
There were 2 mission projects this year. The Little Farmer Backpack program which provides food and snacks for a weekend in a backpack for children whose families need a bit of help. The money that was collected in the nightly offering was donated to this cause. We also tried to “Fill the Igloo” with canned food which was donated to the local food pantry. This one week event allowed us to touch the lives of approximately 72 children!
