By Ryan Jorgenson, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel
God has done great work at Harvest Bible Chapel in the Grimes, IA area July 19-23 as they held their new VBS version called High Five. They saw attendance from last year nearly double with 110 kids attending and a record 54 adults and 6 teenagers volunteer! $786 was raised by the kids to send 2 Iowa youth to FCA Camp later this summer as a part of the week’s endeavors. Most importantly, 6 children made decisions to follow Jesus Christ for the first time!
Drawing local Dallas Center-Grimes High School football and soccer coaches as well as a former professional football player to help provide excellent coaching, the camp offered electives kids could choose from during the week: football, soccer, basketball, music and cooking. Harvest prays the children who came to Christ would grow deeper in their reconciled relationship with Jesus, believing kids’ faith would grow stronger than before and families of kids who attended who are considering spiritual matters will attend church services and God meet them where they’re at.
