Prowling the VBS Front Lines

Wherein I scope out the Summer Bible School venue for Hopewell Mennonite Church

While the building was quiet and empty,
And my soul was needing a break,
I gat me o’er to the edifice so dainty,
And, lo, a verse to my heart did spake.

OK, so quick rhymery it is but hardly wholly sensible poetry. But, hey, you’re getting your money’s worth, so don’t fuss at me. Just scroll on and enjoy the scenery.

Bible verse

I was so blessed to read that verse! I took it just for me! (I also thought of several of my troubled friends…)

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

That was upstairs in the classroom for grades 7 and 8. Thanks, Marvin and Esther!

Then in the basement, in our daughter Chayli and her friend Beka’s classroom, I found more for my soul and those of my friends…

SBS song

Got any rivers you think are uncrossable?
Got any mountains you can’t tunnel through?
God specializes in things thought impossible.
He does the things others cannot do.

Next, the bell used by several generations (I suppose) of Summer Bible School superintendents (the newest being Travis) at Hopewell Mennonite Church:

And a stack of the magnetic signs that go on the vehicles used to transport children:

And how about this chalk-on-aged-blackboard masterpiece by Connie, the wife of Superintendent Travis!

Meanwhile, outside…

Tonight’s the closing program at 8:00 pm.

Comment? Sure!

Above all, love God!
