Macedonia Baptist had a lively week at Spark Studios VBS last week. The stage decorations were phenomenal. Bro John Stuckey and Johnny Knighton went to Birmingham to pick them up from Bro. John's nieces. They took the church van but when they tried to load them, they wouldn't fit in the door. So, they rented a U-Haul truck and managed to get them to Macedonia. Bro. John's nieces handmade the decorations, but they looked professional. Parts of the decorations would move. The music was also awesome under the leadership of Christie Stuckey, and Robin and Jake McDonald. The kids always love the songs and learn the movements. What is so awesome about the songs is that they teach spiritual truths set to music. Our memory verse, Ephesians 2:10, was set to music and the children learned the verse by learning the song. Rotations consisted of gym, crafts missions, Bible study, and snacks. The youth class had a great week too. They had a class competition consisting of two groups. Each student brought change, and they had a contest to see which group could raise the most money. They are going to use the money on the church they will be ministering to this week in New Orleans on the youth mission trip. Bro. James thought they might could raise $200, but instead they raised $1,300!! The youths left July 16, and I know they will have an eventful week. They will return on July 22. The average for VBS was 117 kids and 80 adults.
