2015 VBS – Day Five – Whipped Cream edition

24 Jul

During the week of VBS at First Central Baptist Church, we took an offering each day for missions. Since our theme this year was Everest, we picked a ministry that serves in Nepal, where they recently had an earthquake. To up the motivation and increase the stakes, Robin Dolbow, our Children’s Director, told the children that for every $25 we raised, one of our leaders would get a pie in the face on Friday (today).

The kids rose to the occasion and their generosity soared to new heights. At the reveal during our closing session, Robin was astounded to learn that $345 was raised. (It was actually $355 as $10 was turned in afterwards.) Needless, many of our leaders received a whipped cream pie “in the kisser.”

Robin “pied” the first one, and then that person “pied” the next person in line. I was the last one to receive the honor from Robin, with the kids chanting, “Pastor! Pastor! Pastor!” It was well worth it, and great fun to boot.
