Local ministries come together to host community VBS
For countless communities around the US, summer brings on many traditions. One of these is Vacation Bible School (VBS). Churches of all denominations plan fun-filled weeks or weekends of learning, crafts, music, and games, all centered around the message of God and his love. Unfortunately, yet another casualty of the Covid-19 pandemic has been VBS for numerous churches in and around our community.
Saddened by the fact that local children would not have a VBS this year, two local groups partnered to provide an afternoon of VBS fun for the children of Butler and surrounding counties.
Jesus and Coffee Ministries and Impact Ministries will host two sessions of VBS on July 10 at Charles Black City Park in Morgantown. The sessions will be from 3:30-5:30 and 6-8. Sessions will be limited to fifty children each, as directed, due to state Covid-19 safety protocols.
Example of t-shirt students will receive.
Jesus & Coffee Ministries (Jesus and Coffee Ministries) was founded locally by Bridgette Dockery and Jennifer Robbins. Started as a small group of women meeting for coffee and sharing devotions, has grown into, as Dockery describes it, “a group of women of all ages from different states who want to serve the communities in which we live while bringing Glory to God.” Impact Ministries (www.impactchangetogether.org) is based out of Logan County Director Kyleen Baptiste explains that the mission of the ministry is “helping people find freedom and live with purpose through the gospel” as well as “strengthening the local body of Christ and partnering with local bible-based churches to serve the community”
Open to children ages kindergarten through 5th grade the event will include games, music, crafts, plus dinner and a t-shirt, all centered around learning about Jesus and all free!
