Bible school featured stories, puppet shows
Sixteen children attended a day-long Vacation Bible School on Aug. 12 that
was hosted by First United Methodist and First Presbyterian churches of
The children were divided into two groups. The younger ones, from age
4 through third grade, were led by Terri Spence and Audre Schiller. Fourth
through sixth graders were led by Karen Hill.
Each group learned a Bible story, made puppets, and presented a puppet
show of their story to parents and friends in the afternoon. Both stories
were about faith and courage, and the power of God. The younger group learned
about Daniel in the Lion's Den, and the older children learned about Shadrach,
Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace.
Those attending Vacation Bible School enjoyed a pizza luncheon as well
as refreshments after their presentations. Kevin and Cindy Duke provided
games, and children also enjoyed a sing-a-long led by youth.
Youth from both churches assisted in crafts, refreshments and in making
background "scenery" for the puppet shows. Youth helpers were Kattie Davis,
Ashley Horsburgh, Bill Moody, Jeffrey Seaman, Lindsey Shaw and Shanna Tredaway.
Karen Oglesby helped with the youth activities.
Breakfast helps kids behavior
Making sure kids eat breakfast could mean fewer behavior problems in school.
"Hungry children have more difficulty concentrating and are more likely
to be described as depressed, anxious, fidgety, or irritable by parents
and teachers," said Dr. Debbie Demory-Luce, a registered dietitian with
the USDA/ARS Children's Nutrition Research Center.
They also have more trouble thinking clearly, suffer more fatigue, and
are more likely toe end up in the nurse's office complaining of tummy aches
