Woonsocket

Pictured From left to right, Jocelyn Grassel, Kapri Hiemstra, Emerson Johnson and Hera Zell are working on a craft project of painting crosses in the fresh evening air at the new picnic shelter during Vacation Bible School last week.

During the evenings last week, the Spirit of Faith Lutheran-Methodist Church conducted Vacation Bible School for elementary school and pre-school kids. The theme for this year’s event was to serve, love, shine, grow and pray wherever you go. They chose one of those words for each day’s theme and lessons.

They each made their own candle to shine. To serve, they prepared health kits to send to those in need through the Methodist Conference. To learn about growing, they planted moss roses on the east side of the church. They talked about how God is love and doing service projects shows love from us to others, and they discussed the power of prayer each day the whole week.

They also had activities outside and listened to stories along with creating crafts for each of them to take home for themselves. It was a fun-filled week providing lessons to many of our community’s children along with boys and girls visiting relatives so they could join in the fun.

It was Woonsocket’s turn to host the annual Jerauld-Sanborn Relay for Life. Due to the stormy weather forecast, the event was held at the Woonsocket Community Events Center.

A meal of BBQ sandwiches, chips and a drink was provided and served by the American Legion Auxiliary for a free-will donation. Dave Kogel was the facilitator for this year’s event. He stated that he couldn’t make the event happen without the help of all those who volunteer each year.
