Summer will be here before we know it. If you live in an area of the United States that has seen record snowfall and winter weather this year, then it probably can’t get here soon enough for you! With the advent of summer comes a common summer ritual in churches all across the country – and even the world: Vacation Bible School. Or VBS, as it is universally called.
Every Drop Counts! is the 2011 VBS Project of the EFCA, but it is open to churches of every denomination. The EFCA website says this about Every Drop Counts!: Funds raised will be used to supply water filtration systems to the poorest of the poor; children in Haiti and Kolkata, India. We hope to provide hundreds of children in Haiti and India with clean, safe water through the offerings of children in VBS programs around the country.
What a great way to get kids helping kids in an incredibly beneficial and tangible way. Kids love to collect change and bring it for an offering. Why not have a good old-fashioned boys-versus-girls coin-collecting contest? This is one of those projects where every penny truly does count.
