Full Days of Fun and Faith

 

Pastor Gary Joe Eaches and his wife Jen following a very successful week at United Baptist Church of Scranton. This is the first time United Scranton held a VBS in many, many years. Kids from the surrounding community attended the event and had a great time.

 

Along with the VBS, Student Ministry gatherings (including a praise band from Gettysburg and a Christian comedian) were held in the evenings --- making each day full and faith focused.

 

Pastor Gary and Jen were tired but thrilled with the support the church family offered for this summer ministry event as well as grateful for all the kids who participated.

The Wizard of Oz - West Shore Style

 

The West Shore Baptist Church put on a musical drama camp at their church last week with performances on Friday and Saturday.

 

The week included games and crafts.

 

Life lessons (Pastor Greg talked with our campers about how we, like Dorothy, are always longing for something or some place else.)

 

Lots of rehearsal.

 

And of course, a great show.

 

Amazing volunteers worked all week (and many weeks prior) to make musical theatre camp a success. 60 kids heard, saw, and experienced the Gospel through this creative ministry.

From Every Nation, Tribe, and People

 

At East Smithfield Baptist Church there are visible reminders that we are not alone. The church is comprised of a huge crowd, too large for anyone to count, from every nation, tribe, and people. And they all shout with a great roar: “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!" (Revelation 7:9-10)
