Local kids have been enjoying Vacation Bible School at First United Methodist Church this week. “Jesus gives us new life” was the theme of the week, illustrated by Hermie, a caterpillar who turns into a butterfly. The church hosted Starwalk of Dallas to bring a big finish to the program on Thursday. Children and staff alike enjoyed jumping and flipping on bungee trampolines to “fly” like Hermie.
A staff of 46 spent three hours each morning leading classes, crafts, and music, and providing snacks. Students ranged from those entering first grade to those entering fifth grade. Every square inch of the Methodist Ministry Center seemed to be in use as groups of children rotated to different areas for activities.
