Spirit of Faith Lutheran-Methodist Church in Woonsocket held their annual Vacation Bible School from Monday, July 26, through Thursday, July 29. This year’s theme was entitled “I’ve got this with Jesus” and involved lessons, activities and projects based around trust in others and in God.

Each evening, there was a lesson that included indoor and outdoor activities and art projects. One of the outdoor games was a trust obstacle course, where a team of two had to make it through the course with one teammate being led blindfolded by the other teammate. Throughout the week the kids worked on art projects and made a prayer board for those important to them, a talent jar to remind them of what makes them special and a painted brick with an inspirational word.

The week culminated on Thursday with a musical program put on by the students for their families and the community members in attendance.

Although the temperatures were in the mid-90s on Saturday, July 24, the Pony Hills Scramble in the Sand Golf Tournament had a record high of 25 teams going out to have some fun and raise some money to help pay for some much-needed updates on the clubhouse.

Results of the tournament’s first flight are: Brian Goertz and Jevon Goertz – first place, Mike Johnson and Patrick Johnson – second place and Jordan VonEye and Andy Krueger – third place. Results for the second flight are: Arin Boschee and Jeff Boschee – first place, Regina Teveldal and Teresa Fonder – second place and Gary and Randee Beigh – third place.

Each hole on the course had a business sponsor, which also helped with costs for putting on the tournament and helped to keep all the money raised in the funds for the improvements needed on the clubhouse. If anyone would like to donate to help with the upkeep of the clubhouse and the grounds, contact a club member or the Sanborn Weekly Journal for information on how to get donations to the club.
