Maidstone and District News: Week-long VBS draws 39 participants

Winners drawn in Maidstone Museum raffle.

MAIDSTONE — Vacation Bible School was a fun-filled week. Thirty-nine children came throughout the week to hear how much Jesus loves them. There were six leaders from Grace Community Church, one teen from Grace Youth Group, one leader from Lashburn Community Church and one leader from Child Evangelism Fellowship. On the last day, five children received devotional books for doing all their homework and four names (two age 8 and up, two younger) were drawn to receive Bibles. Everyone received a treat bag. It was a truly inspiring year for VBS.

July 29, Maidstone Museum’s president Danielle Hollingshead, vice-president John Anderson and Synergy Maidstone’s manager Jody Zerr conducted the draw for the museum’s summer raffle. Winners were Angeline Deschambault, Sebastian Anton, and Val Morris. Thank you to all who bought tickets to support the museum and also to sponsors and Maidstone Museum board members.

Maidstone Seniors’ Drop-In Centre continues to have games afternoon on Monday from 2 to 4 p.m. Aug. 1, five people played cribbage with Denise N. high score and Lois M. low. Contact program director Katie Granger if you’d like to attend.

Open fellowship at St. Faith’s Church on the museum grounds has been changed to Sunday, Aug. 7 at 3 p.m. to accommodate participants. A potluck supper will follow with plates, cutlery, napkins, cold drinks and coffee supplied. Anyone who can share a prayer, scripture reading or inspirational message at the gathering, please contact Kathy: text 306-893-7378 or phone 306-893-2799. Everyone is welcome to join us.
