Tonight I had a close encounter of the 4th kind.


I don’t know what close encounters of the 1st and 2nd kind are and the movie made no sense to me, so I’m inventing my own category for what I witnessed tonight.


But, since, as they say, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words,’ take a look for yourself:





Pretty awesome, huh?









Hundreds and hundreds of kids!CIMG1400




Nearly a hundred volunteers…


And a whole host of parents looking like deer in the headlights as their little children entered the incredible “Planet Earth Zone.”


Hats off to M&M (Mary and Marty) our children’s ministry leaders and all of their sold out volunteers who put this thing together.


It’s flat out awesome!


And a wonderful lead in to our big back to school family series in late August called, “Planet Earth.”  the story of the family from beginning to end.


More about that later.


For now…


Got kids?


Get’em to Southbrook’s “Amazing Planet VBS.”


It’s not too late.




Tomorrow night and all the rest of this week from 6:30 pm to 9:00.


They would love it, and, frankly, it’s down right cruel not to bring them.


Don’t make me call child services.


Cya there.
