Vacation Bible School 2020
Has Been Cancelled.
It is with heavy heart that I need to let you know that we will be unable to host in person VBS this summer. This is a decision that was not made lightly. I have been in consultation with the Wesley Freedom Staff, Pastor Tony and Pastor Ian. We used the guidelines set before us from the Bishop’s Office, CDC and Church Mutual, our insurance company.
The easiest way for me to put this in context is to consider John Wesley’s Three Simple Rules. Looking at the first rule of “Do No Harm” and asking the question, “Can we keep our children, youth and leaders safe?” The answer is no. The Bishop has cautioned us to put lives before programs. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and a deep desire to love vulnerable members of our community the best way we know how, by maintaining physical distancing.
Please continue to pray for Wesley Freedom, our campers, youth and leaders. We are beginning to brainstorm ideas for some opportunities over summer. Think about your gifts and how they can be used to reach and enrich the lives of children and families. Pastor Jenny is excited about the opportunities that will unfold in new and creative ways!
The plan is to use Rocky Railway in 2021. We are asking volunteers to allow their registration fees to roll over until 2021. It is costly and complicated to refund and the fees will be used to maintain VBS for the future. If this is a hardship please let me know.
