VBS Review

GBReef2Update:

What a week it was! We had an absolutely full compliment of young people for our Great Bible Reef program, and  a crackerjack team of leaders and helpers. Thanks to Heather Fitzgerald who led the effort and to her helpers: Heather, Carley Susan, Natasha, Vonnie, Anne, Carol, Jean, Cher, Lin, Kathy, Alyssa, Jill, Megan, Kate, Cathy, Ellen and Dot.

You can check out their end of week “Newsletter” here: VBS 2014.

Can’t wait for next year!! Save these dates: 20-24 July 2015.


For the fourth year we also held a “VBS for Adults.” We watched and then discussed two YouTube video presentations by  McLarenBrian McLaren, a retired pastor from Maryland and a noted author and speaker. His area of specialty is what has become known as the “Emergent Church,” about what Christian community will look like in the age of electronic social media. We found him interesting and thought-provoking both with respect to the global future of the church and to the implications for local congregations. You can watch them too!
