August 22nd-26th the First Free Methodist Church of Sault Ste Marie, Mich. held their annual Vacation Bible School. 53 kids attended the five day VBS where they learned to shake up their lives to follow God’s words. Three quarters of attendees were from outside of the church, making VBS a great community outreach.
The kids were asked to bring food items for the church’s food pantry, which is open to the community. On Friday night the children made pizzas for their parents and there was a pizza party at the end of the last day.
Counting volunteers, there were 101 people in attendance, growth from the first VBS three years ago which drew 32 people at the final program. The youth ministry team hopes to have 75 kids next year and to continue to grow.
