The Bridge to Sharing

The Bridge to Sharing

Lisa Allgood, Executive Presbyter

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what’s coming to you in this kingdom. It’s been ready for you since the world’s foundation. And here’s why: I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes…”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    – Matthew: 25:34-36 (Message)

Or, perhaps… shoes!?!

This year’s VBS at Madeira-Silverwood was a rollicking Hero Hotline Week!

The depths of a colorful underground cave holds the beating heart of the hero community, the Hero Hotline Headquarters – where everyone’s gifts are valued and every Hero has a role to play. When Heroes in the field call in, the Professor (Pastor Russell), Super Meer (the super knowledgeable Meerkat puppet), and the team of Heroes (the kids of all ages) spring into action and explore the ultimate Hero Handbook – the Bible – to discover how all Heroes can follow the examples set by a cast of supporting Bible Heroes in stories from the Old and New Testaments.  Because Heroes always work together to bring peace, build each other up, and share the great story of God’s love for us where they are and with the whole world! 

The VBS collected shoes all week for Soles4Souls – and just look at that pile (716 pairs)!  (Not to mention Professor Russell getting advice from Super Meer!)

How much fun can learning about Jesus be?!?
