As we make the two hour drive up to Banner Elk I find myself reflecting on how grateful I am for what is happening back at Unity. This week 100 children are gathering at Unity for a week of Vacation Bible School. I walked around yesterday morning during the beginning of VBS and I was thoroughly impressed at how many volunteers from Unity were working together to create a successful week.
As I walked around, I noticed a couple of things that really made me smile:
-I noticed how many youth from our church were helping lead in some capacity. I love seeing them dedicate a week of their summer to serve in this way.
A successful Vacation Bible School requires a large amount of volunteer investment. Many churches do not have enough volunteers to sustain a VBS program. I am so glad that Unity is an exception to this. This church is investing in it’s children; both in our church and in our community. I have no doubt that a student may be learning about God for this first time this week.
See you on Sunday!
