Vacation Bible School appreciated

August 27, 2013 • Dear Editor

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the session and members of Westminster Presbyterian Church, I want to thank the group of 23 members of North Liberty Presbyterian Church in Grove City, Pa., for their generosity and kindness to the young people of Roswell.

They came to Roswell for the week of July 22 – July 26 to conduct a Vacation Bible School. This was not the first time that this mission-oriented church has sent [auth] its talented group to assist the Hispanic community and Pastor Adam Soliz in a Vacation Bible School, and during their previous stays in Roswell, Westminster had been their “home base.” Because Iglesia Hispana Presbiteriana is currently having Sunday worship in Westminster, it was decided that a joint VBS be held at this location.

After a two-year money-raising program to fund the expenses to make their long journey to Roswell, they arrived Saturday night, July 20, and by Monday our church was transformed into a theme park, ready to receive the children. We were especially blessed this year to have members of the Boys and Girls Club of Roswell to join us. On Tuesday, three busloads of kids were transported to Bottomless Lakes for an afternoon of fun. The attendees were provided lunch each afternoon before leaving the church. This VBS experience brightened the lives of all the kids who attended, and there were 73 young minds and bodies that were challenged and blessed.

Roswell was very honored to have had this talented and dedicated Christian group grace us with their expertise in setting up and teaching a VBS that encourages our young people to appreciate the Lord’s many blessings. We thank you each and every one!

Ann Reese Dye
WPC Session Elder
