Wow!  Was our Vacation Bible SchoolBible Blast to the Past—a great event or what?  My vote is great event!  Over three evenings, we gathered here at First Cumberland to focus on discovering God’s everlasting love.  As we traveled through a “time machine” to biblical days, we discovered that God’s love is incredible, invincible, and real.  With discoveries like that, no wonder it was a great event.  We had at least 72 people, including several visitors, attend our Vacation Bible School, and the average attendance each night was 55.  Each evening, we received an offering for the Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home; $218.42 was given for this purpose.  Space will not allow me to individually thank everyone who made this year’s Vacation Bible School such a great event, but I do want to mention two people: Amanda Roberts, our director, and Rev. Steve Graham, our guest adult class teacher.  Steve is the Pastor of the Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church.  Again, these are not the only two people who should be mentioned, but space prohibits me from listing everyone by name; so thanks to each teacher, thanks to those who went shopping for VBS, thanks to those who cooked and helped in the kitchen, thanks to those who lead the art and music classes, thanks to those who decorated, thanks to those who took pictures and created a video slideshow that will soon be posted on both our church website and our Facebook page, thanks to those who made Sunday night’s celebration/cookout/water slide extravaganza a success, thanks to all the kids that attended and the adults that brought them, and above all, thanks be to God for His blessings!  Again, my vote is that our Vacation Bible School was a great event!
