Hamilton Hosts Fishing-themed VBS

The Hamilton Church Vacation Bible School was filled with excitement, Bible stories, games and activities as a total of 42 "fishermen," with a daily attendance of 32 to 35, learned how to go fishing for men just like Jesus did.

With cattails, a boathouse and "boat" as props, the opening and closing exercises and skits were daily highlights. And those fishermen produced lots of energy for singing!

Bill Whitney, Hamilton Church pastor, and his son, John, told riveting Bible fishing stories. Even the games and snacks related to fishing. Art Andreasen led the games, which included fly fishing, folfing (Frisbee golf), skip rope and water balloons. The Snack Shak, operated by Joan Schwarz and Ron Wood, offered fruit and crackers in the shape of fish and other goodies.

Each morning the staff gathered for prayer and sharing time. Other church members joined them in praying daily for the VBS. As just one of many answered prayers, two of the fishermen have decided to go to the local Adventist school, Blodgett View Christian School, this year.
