Five young adults from the Great Plains Conference are spending their summer strengthening their walk with God as they disciple children through Vacation Bible School. This internship program through the Small Membership Church ministry has the team in churches across Kansas and Nebraska, in small towns and larger cities, for nine weeks.
The first VBS for the summer was held last week in Axtell, Kan. The congregation anticipated 35 children to participate but attracted 78, which was a pleasant surprise. One family who had not been to church previously, asked about worship times and planned to return.
See photos of the many smiles on the faces of the children who enjoyed the curriculum of Cokesbury’s Workshop of Wonders. (A video is available here but only for a few weeks.) While the interns sharpen their leadership skills and open congregations to current young adult culture, they spread their enthusiasm for serving the body of Christ.
Please pray for Anna Dixon from Kingman, Kan.; Felicia Edson from Fredonia, Kan.; Colin Eurit from Marion, Kan.; Phillip Friesen from Derby, Kan.; and Kristina Heinrich from Wilson, Kan. This week they are serving in Meade and Kalvesta, Kan., and they head to Chappell and Logepole, Neb., next week.
