It was Saturday morning, but the First United Methodist Church’s Ministry Center on Newsom Street was almost as busy as a Sunday morning. An all-you-can-eat breakfast benefiting the Bread of Life Food Pantry began at 7. As soon as it was over at 10, the youth group began a car wash fundraiser to raise money for missions and activities.
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.
