White Oak UMC children soare to new heights at VBS


“Soaring to New Heights with God” is what 105 children in Crystal Springs literally experienced during White Oak UMC Vacation Bible School. 


A hot air balloon wrapped up the week. Pilot Dan Martindale and his wife Susan provided the children the opportunity to experience hot air ballooning. The five-day event also included competitive balloon races, a balloon glow, children’s activities, food and entertainment. 


During the week, the children all became Sky Scouts and discovered five flight plans that helped them soar to new heights with God:


  I will follow


  I will trust


  I will listen


  I will repent


  I will serve


“It was truly a super-charged week,” said Timothy Crisler, VBS director. “Kids who attended told us it is one of the best parts about summer, which is why it is also one of our most powerful outreach events for children’s ministries at our church.”
