Laughter and joy, singing and art, a cool theme … all made VBS a spectacular event for 35 children in mid-August 2019. Making it such a success was the amazing leadership offered by Lauren McBride, Patty Kreamer, Nanette Melera, and Pastor Julia. Planning began months ago with the theme: Journey with Jesus, VBS camping. The lobby and hallways were decked out to complement the theme, and food was collected for the local Food Pantry.
And, as great as the leaders were, so great were all the rest of the volunteer staff. It could never have been done without Nell MacDonald, Melissa Doellman-Brown, Emma Krebs, James Roche, Christopher Roche, Julia Mirabella, Frankie Morabito, Vincent Heintz, Jon Falconer, Melanie Urgiles, Siena Tornello, Brendan Roche, Georgine Morabito and Rebecca McNally.
And special thanks go to our own master of stagecraft and everything mechanical, Jim Donovan, for the rainforest hut that became the main entrance to our church!
