Dear Friends in Christ -

Now that our week of VBS is complete, there are some things I would like to share with you.  I saw VBS as an entire congregational event, from the prayer group keeping VBS in their prayers, to people donating craft items. I saw youth stepping into leadership roles and doing an AWESOME job! There were grandparents, parents, and people who work full-time jobs joyfully volunteering their evenings. There were people behind the scenes making props and sewing capes for each child who attended so they could be a "Super Hero of God!"

Once again, I have seen the body of Christ alive and active in you, the people of Holy Cross!  What a blessing each of you are!  "And you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be my witnesses to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)  I have seen this verse come to life in you! Thank you!  

In Christ and for all His glory!
Jean Wagner, Discipleship Coordinator
