10 Decisions for Christ, 6 Baptisms at VBS!
July 21st, 2013
What a wonderful week of Bible Study, Worship, Missions, Recreation, Crafts and Food! More than 200 Children participated on our campus which was transformed into a theme park for the Colossal Coaster World Vaction Bible School from LifeWay. At least ten children made decisions for Jesus Christ, six of them were baptized on Thursday night during the final Worship time, one more baptised Sunday morning and the others are awaiting baptism.
Children's Director, Emily Garrett and more than 100 volunteers worked hard to create a great learning environment that was fun, exciting and helped kids learn of God's Good News. Five different Sunday School Classes helped feed the leaders at 5PM so they could focus on teaching and preparing for the enthusiastic children that would arrive at 6 PM.
Pastor Dr. Doug Plumlee extended his appreciation to all who helped with VBS 2013. Plumlee says, "It is so exciting to see everyone working together for God’s Kingdom. You have made an eternal impact on the lives of many children. All of the parents that I saw were thrilled with the week... All I can say is “THANKS!”
Thanks to all who participated in a great week.

New Sr. Pastor, Dr. Doug Plumlee, has pinpointed reaching young families as a top ministry priority from the start. This Summer's Vacation Bible School will be a great first opportunity to focus Ridgedale's energies and resources on this important area.
VBS is one of those things that Ridgedale's volunteers traditionally do well. God usually entrusts us with lots of elementry aged children during that week. Many young families will be on campus those five nights and its a chance to put our best foot forward.
