Children dug into the 23rd Psalm during Vacation Bible School June 19 - 22 for a week of learning and fun. The theme: Barnyard Roundup. The message: Jesus loves them always and forever....no matter what!
While munching on popcorn sheep and making seed feeders for birds to enjoy, the children learned, through the imagry of a farm, about the love of Jesus and how he provides for them abundantly. The imagry came to life on Wednesday with a visit by a petting zoo. Lambs, goats, bunnies, chickens, and even a burro received lots of TLC!
Through a daily offering, children collected money for a Loaves and Fishes farm in Coon Rapids that was destroyed by hail last week. The farm provides fresh produce for the non-profit's free community meals. The generous children and their families raised $151.00.
Diamond Lake's quilters even joined the fun by sewing together squares that the children had made into two quilts that will be given to the Welcome Home ministry, which provides housing for families moving out of homelessness.
