Yesterday was Little River's Vacation Bible School Rally. On this day, the Methodist and Congregational Church come together for one service. People who don't normally attend church get to hear the Gospel as they come to see their children perform. During our Son Force Kids program, I came out as "Agent DET" and promoted all the kids to Level 5 Agents. All in all, it was a lot of fun and I had great time with my 3-4th grade boys class.
With VBS and all of May's graduation activities completed, my summer officially begins.
Knowing you've transitioned from one season to another is a good feeling. You can look back with a sense of accomplishment knowing that good things got done.
Summer means that traditional activities around the church take a break for the summer--Bible study groups, weekly youth and children ministries, although Sunday School continues.
Around church, summer gives me time to make plans for September-May, while also taking some needed time off.
Meanwhile, local farmers are gearing up for wheat harvest. With the late April freeze we suffered--and with all the extra moisture causing disease problems--the yield is still very uncertain.
