The workout coach shouts, "Power Up! Join the team. We can make a difference the world will see. Power Up!" The banner stretched in front of Thomson First United Methodist Church on Main Street in Thomson proclaims "Jesus Helps You Power Up!" Another fun-packed Vacation Bible School program will take place daily from 6-8:45 p.m., July 18-22.
This high impact experience is about far more than being in shape. It offers kids the opportunity to help reshape their world.
"We need all the Workout Team members we can find," VBS Director Charlotte Derry said. "We're going to explore five of the 'one-another' passages in the Bible and kids will discover that Jesus builds us up from the inside out. Through hands-on activities they'll see that they can reshape their world as they love one another, accept one another, serve one another, comfort one another and forgive one another.
"We've packed the week full of challenges and excitement, including Word of Life Center, Movers and Shakers Fitness Fun, Munch and Crunch Cafe and High Impact Crafts. Two ant mascots, Rachel, a health-oriented coach, and Reuben, a happy-go-lucky guy interested in improving himself, double the fun."
So get ready to do the spiritual stretch! Sit up. Push up. Pull up. Don't give up. You're "cross" training for life. Sign up at the Power Up! Explosion Preregistration Experience in the main building Sunday, July 18. Call 595-3936 with any questions or to do quick and easy phone enrollments.
