Building 28 VBS

Our family has made another change.

Tim is now a bi-vocational pastor.

Our church, Building 28, has hired him to be the part-time Pastor of Discipleship.

It is a really funny story how it all came to be.

They had been searching for a full-time assistant pastor for quite a while, and our pastor had even talked with Tim about applying for the position.

But Tim really loves his job at Trinity and wants to stay there for a while.

Several people began to tell Tim how they thought he would be great for the position, and he kept saying he just couldn't do it full-time.

Through a series of God-ordained conversations and circumstances the church decided to hire three men part-time, and Tim is one of them.

We feel very humbled to be serving at this great church.

One of my favorite events at the church that we have been a part of is their VBS.

Our church is a church plant of about three years, so we have been renting space in a store-front.

This was the first year we did VBS in the current location, and we had about 80 kids there.

It was so much fun.

I was deemed the role of the Coo-coo craft lady with my friend, Stephanie.

We got all kinds of crazy with the craft supplies.

We used a super hero theme to teach the kids the gospel throughout the four days.

Each day had its own word: justify, sanctify, glorify and multiply.

Each day also had a verse to go along with the theme.

The super heroes all had Christian names like . . . 

The Bible Bat

Captain Atonement . . . which was Ethan's favorite:)

The host was a character named "Doink"

We even had special men who were 2,000 years old like the Apostle Paul come and give the Bible lesson everyday.

It was truly an unforgettable week.

The people in the church who gave of their time and energy to make it successful were such a blessing to the kids.

My kids have not stopped talking about it.

I am so thankful for a church that teaches truth and loves people.
