The Eastpoint UMC Youth Center was delighted to hold its first Vacation Bible School (VBS) the week of July 23-27, 2018. Nearly sixty local children gathered from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to enjoy a number of lessons and activities, along with music, at the Eastpoint UMC Youth Center. The VBS was directed by Cheryl Fritsch-Middleton, with help from volunteers from First UMC Eastpoint and St George Island UMC. The theme was “Shipwrecked” and the children learned that Jesus is there to rescue you when you hope, worry, struggle, and do wrong. During the musical portion, children learned to perform praise songs like “Eye of the Storm” and “Lighthouse” which we hope they will sing joyfully for years to come. We are grateful to everyone involved and are looking forward to hosting future events.
