VBS: Day 1

Today we kicked off our very first vacation bible school!  The helpers arrived a little early to decorate rooms and to practice skits and songs.  Wayne introduced the theme for the week with the help of three masked friends.  We had a great time singing songs, playing games, doing crafts, and learning bible lessons.  We look forward to tomorrow!  
(Stay tuned…the next VBS update will be on Wed.)
