Friday, July 15
I didn’t take pictures during Bible school on Friday evening since everything would be similar to the past two entries.
I enjoyed the children’s story which emphasized that God has a place for each of us in His Kingdom.
It was a bit humorous as 5 Bible characters started out in settings that confused them and did not fit with their life. For instance: Zacchaeus had a sling shot. Queen Esther was in a tree. Jonah sat on a throne. David was in the mouth of a large fish, and Goliath just stood their looking confused because nothing was right. Each person shared their confusion, then exchanged places a few times before finding their place in God’s Kingdom.
The children went to their rooms; we had a challenging lesson in the sanctuary by Larry Kreider; there was singing and closing thoughts – then it was over for another year.
Jason Laughman got the job of removing things from the ceiling lights of the sanctuary.
Walls were cleared of underwater creatures.
People were carrying trash bags filled with things to be thrown away or stored until next year.
Notice the whale is gone and the walls have been cleared – and the ladder is moved to another light where undersea creatures had been dangling for the past week.
It was amazing how quickly the interior of our church was put back to normal.
I enjoyed walking into classrooms during the week and watching teachers in action – and pray that godly seeds have been sown into the lives of each student – children and adults.
