Thank You for an AWESOME first day of VBS!

Thank you for joining us for VBS 2014 at Hamilton Mill UMC! We had a great first day. The church was filled with children excited to learn more about the God who loves them. A special thank you to all of our volunteers, you are the ones who make VBS such and awesome experience. We also want to thank all of the parents for sharing their wonderful children with us today. We have a great group of kids and it is such a blessing the have them with us this week. If you did not get a chance to stop by the Parent Hospitality Tent today, please stop by and say hello tomorrow. We will have ice cold lemonade and fresh baked cookies ready and waiting for you before pick up from 11:45pm to 12:45pm each day! Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures…including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd—nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus.

    Thanks for sharing! It’s nice to have some conversation leads with my kindergartener when all he says is, “It was fun. I liked my lunch.” 🙂 After seeing the video again he suddenly remembers much more!

    This blog is a wonderful way to share with parents what a fun day each child has had. It was a fantastic morning for the volunteers as well as the children. What a blessing to share this time with everyone!

    Thank you for posting the bible point and verse for the day and pictures. Corey’s favorite today was the music and dancing. Ashley loved helping her buddy and I enjoyed making so many new friends with my 1B group. Thank you for another great year of VBS!
