    VBS for our church is a large undertaking. But what an incredible week it was. From my view as the refreshment department head, here are a few numbers:

    1800 Oreo cookies
    900 Chips Ahoy
    900 cups of coffee
    14 cantaloupes
    45 Entenmanns cakes
    30 dozen bagels
    50 lbs. grapes
    10 lbs. cheese (for cheese and crackers)
    85 gallons of lemonade
    15 gallons iced tea

    But the REAL numbers came in to the congregation on Sunday:

    451 students registered
    68.3% are from outside of our church
    107 decisions for Christ
    224+ volunteer workers
    400 Kid to Kid soccer balls for South Africa
    980 food items for a local food pantry
    1000 attending the Friday night VBS fair

    What a blessing to know how many children were touched in some way. We hear years later of how lives have been changed through someone's experience with VBS. :)

    Praise and glory to God alone!
