As we have always done since teaming up with Faith and Stairville UMC, we have picked a way to help someone through our VBS. This year we have “adopted” Paige Ceaser who is four years old and has Cystic Fibrosis. As the Web site for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation states, the disease causes the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, leading to life-threatening lung infections, and obstructs the pancreas, stopping natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. Our mission project will be specifically for Paige to help with expenses for her treatments. On August 22, the 3rd annual fundraiser in Paige’s honor known as the “Country Concert and Motorcycle Ride” will be held which will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. If you want to know more about the concert and CF, please check the web page, www.cfconcert.com. You can find additional information and updates for Paige at www.PaigeCeaser.com.
Registration sheets are on the table in the narthex or you can call the church (868-5675) and let me know. We would like to have a general idea of how much material needs to be ordered as soon as possible.
On Wednesday, June 9, we held another planning meeting. Decorations were finalized and supplies ordered. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, July 14 to be sure we have everything ordered correctly and tell the ride guides (teenagers) what they need to know to help the younger kids.
Through the program, we will help children Choose to BELIEVE that Jesus is God’s promised Savior, Choose to ACT and care for others, Choose FORGIVENESS from Jesus, Choose to OBEY Jesus even when it’s hard and Choose JESUS as our guide and source of wisdom! If you would like to help out, we welcome you to assist in planning this special event to help our children learn to make good choices. Thanks for all your support!
