Fireworks filled the night skies of Adrian last Sunday evening as the Adrian United Methodist Church kicked off their VBS week at the Frontier Village. Over 100 families turned out to join in the celebration which included a pot-luck dinner, free train rides, face painting, balloon art, homemade snow cones and root beer floats, a concert by Stephen Rew and the band Decided and, of course, fireworks.

That energy and excitement continued throughout the week as over 100 kids made their way through the Workshop of Wonders (W.O.W.) where they learned to imagine, build, grow, work and walk with God. Over 50 volunteers donated their time and energy to make sure each child experienced the love of God in a meaningful and memorable way.

Not only did kids learn about the love of God, they were also able to demonstrate that love in a real and meaningful way through mission. Over the course of the week, both kids and adults contributed to P.E.T. International, an organization that gives the gift of mobility to people living in Third World countries who have lost the use of their legs.
