The Plover Center had a wonderful day on Monday with all of their new RAGBRAI friends as they served “Hambrai” to RAGBRAI… (aka: the famous Plover hamballs)!  And, it turns out frozen watermelon pops were a welcome addition to their meal deal!  Thanks to those who helped to prepare and serve those bicyclists in need of nourishment and a place to rest and recharge!

VBS – – almost 50 students ROOTED for Christ!

What a fabulous week of Vacation Bible School!  There were almost 50 students each day, with 14-16 teen helpers, along with the four energetic camp staff that help us learn the importance of being ROOTED in Christ.  A special thanks to Lori Baade, Moi Hopkins, Heidi Freeburg, and Angie Cook for the hours of prep work they did to help make this week such a great success!  Also, thanks to everyone who helped provide or serve snacks, helped with registration, or provided supplies for the week.  This is definitely a whole-church project!  Thanks for your part in helping us help get God’s Word ROOTED in their hearts!


Below are just a few pics from the week!

The theme:  ROOTED – in Grace, Christ, Faith and Truth

The VBS Camp Counselors:  Hannah, Sam, Greta, Liz, and Dani Cook

And what is VBS without great songs??

…. and more great songs!!

And of course, great snacks each day!  (Becky Ives, Pam Radig, and Vicki Kerns – Wednesday kitchen crew)

Fun and Games at the closing party – – thanks, Lori!

And each student attending VBS got to take home their very own tree on Thursday, so they could watch it get ROOTED!

Thanks for sharing the VBS songs with our family and friends!  It was a GREAT week!  We hope you can come back and join us when Sunday School resumes this fall!
