THANKS TO VBS WORKERS
Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s GForce VBS such a success. We had 21 children
participate. They ate dinner, watched a puppet show with
video, sang and danced to songs, watched five Bible
stories acted out, learned Bible verses, watched science experiments, played
games, and made crafts. They learned to be God’s love in action.
WORDS TO SONG OF PRAISE
Bind Us Together
Chorus:
Verse:
Bind us together, Lord,
bind us together with cords that cannot be broken.
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together, Lord,
bind us together in love.
There is only one God, there is only one King;
There is only one body, that is why we sing.
Repeat Chorus
At First United Methodist Church
we challenge each other to be BOLD,
to step out in faith as disciples of Jesus Christ.
