In June, 2016, Community Presbyterian Church hosted a neighborhood Vacation Bible School. For 3 nights, about 30 area children and youth enthusiastically sang songs, made crafts, and explored the theme: "Submerged" as everyone dived deep into God's love.
This year, the Vacation Bible School children learned about the Presbyterian Church (USA) mission giving catalog and discovered how much difference a pair of baby goats could help a familiy in need on the other side of the world. We set a goal - to collect the $178 needed to purchase a pair of kids for a family in need.
At the end of VBS we counted our offering and realized that we had come up a little short (althought $149.70 is a remarkable amount - mostly loose change!) Pastor John took this story to the congregation the following Sunday and asked if they could help us reach our gol. When we counted this very specail offering we had collected an additional $164! (Thank you Church!). This meant that the VBS children could purchase not only a pair of baby goats - but also two pigs and a family of chickens. Because this gift is through the PC(USA) Mission Giving Catalog it means that our network of Presbyterian Missionaries will help connect these gifts with families who will benefit greatly.
Praise God for the dream of children and the generosity of adults!
