We're having a great time each evening in the heart of the city

West Morris Street Free Methodist Church, affectionately dubbed "WEMO" by our youth group several years ago, has pulled out the stops for a week of Vacation Bible School in the heart of the city. I love this week for our church, not just because children come from far and near to participate in five 2 1/2-hour evenings packed with fun songs, crafts, stories, recreation, drama, and Bible verse memorization. I love it because so many people in the church get into it and serve fully--and beyond expectations. It's a concentrated effort of coordinated service and, though folks will be worn out by the end of the week, fulfilling. I used to think VBS had become superfluous and superficial. But then I saw its promise and purpose within our WEMO mission and community.
